Indianapolis Business Journal

City and Urban Affairs Reporter
Indianapolis Business Journal is looking for a curious, aggressive and compassionate reporter to cover city government and urban affairs. It’s a beat that includes the mayor, city-county council and local elections but also socioeconomic mobility, neighborhood development, poverty, race, housing and transportation.

We are an award-winning, locally owned news organization that focuses on coverage of and for the business community, but we interpret business broadly. We believe that for the region’s economy to thrive, all parts of it must succeed, and therefore stories about poverty and race are as important to us as coverage of the corporate boardroom.

IBJ has a newsroom of 18 reporters, editors and artists who cover technology, real estate, banking, manufacturing, philanthropy, health care, government and politics. And we recently dedicated a top journalist to investigative reporting.

IBJ publishes a weekly printed paper and produces significant daily coverage at that is distributed through more than a dozen email newsletters (three of them sent daily). Parent company IBJ Media—which is locally owned and managed—also publishes The Indiana Lawyer every other week.

The city and urban affairs reporter will write two to three daily stories per week, plus a weekly enterprise story for the paper, which is published on Fridays. The city reporter will also contribute items to The Rundown weekly newsletter.
