State Government & Politics Reporter
The Detroit Free Press has an opening for a state government and politics reporter. This reporter will be responsible for ongoing coverage of the Legislature, state government and state politics as a watchdog constantly reporting with the interests of Michigan citizens in mind. This reporter also will team with other Free Press, Lansing State Journal and USA Today Network Michigan reporters as a key member of our team covering state and national elections in Michigan. While the job does require daily reporting and coverage of ongoing issues, this reporter will also team with other reporters on ongoing enterprise and investigative reporting and will be a key player in our expanded Michigan journalism network. This is a high-output, high-impact beat. As with any reporter in these times, extensive posting for the web, a professional presence on social media and work in audio will be required. Applicants must have substantial prior investigative reporting and government coverage experience.
