Indianapolis Business Journal

Statehouse and Economic Development Reporter
Indianapolis Business Journal is looking for an aggressive, thoughtful and analytical reporter to cover economic development, politics and the Indiana Statehouse, a beat that includes the Legislature and the Governor’s Office. This reporter will also co-author an award-winning weekly political newsletter called The Rundown. IBJ is an award-winning, locally owned news organization that focuses on coverage of and for the business community—but we interpret business broadly. In fact, we view our role as covering the intersection of business and politics and therefore dedicate several people to covering state and local government.

Our state government reporter will take the lead on IBJ’s economic development coverage, which means covering the state’s secretary of commerce and the quasi-public Indiana Economic Development Corp., with a focus on government incentives, talent and recruitment efforts and workforce development. In addition, the state reporter will cover the legislative session each spring and political campaigns and elections in the fall. The reporter will also be responsible for coverage of U.S. House and Senate races and follow some federal issues.
