Daily Journal

Government & Politics Reporter
The Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal is seeking a full-time reporter to cover government and politics in our core market and to be a part of our political team, which covers national, state and local issues. We are looking for an energetic reporter who is hungry, has a wide variety of interests and is able to switch gears between reporting hard news, delving into complicated issues and turning around breaking news quickly and accurately. Our new government and politics reporter will come in as a new administration takes over in Tupelo, providing a wealth of immediate story ideas and issues to follow. This position will also work closely with our enterprise/special projects editor and state government reporter as part of a three-person political team covering issues vital to Mississippi and our local communities such as criminal justice, access to health care, infrastructure demands and economic development.Tupelo and Lee County are the cultural and economic hubs of Northeast Mississippi — an area rich in history, economic development and political power — providing a wealth of issues and influence to cover.
