The Desert Sun

Politics Reporter
The Desert Sun/, the award-winning daily newspaper in Palm Springs, California and part of the USA TODAY NETWORK, seeks an experienced reporter to cover politics. This is a high-impact beat, as it is responsible for ongoing coverage of local, regional and state politics and public policy of high interest to Coachella Valley readers, local public officials, and other local agencies. Good candidates have shown they can see through government spin, develop sourcing to scoop the competition and write in-depth reports that hold agencies accountable to the public.

In addition to writing about city and county politics, this reporter is key to our coverage of California state government, including state ballot initiatives and gubernatorial recall drives. This reporter will collaborate frequently with our local city government watchdog journalists at The Desert Sun as well as reporters at other USA TODAY Network newsrooms across the Golden State.
