The Modesto Bee

Accountability Reporter
The Modesto Bee is looking for an energetic, versatile journalist who can shine a light on city governments. We don’t want to simply tell readers how their money is being spent; we want to show how the decisions being made at the local level impact their lives.  We’re looking for an enterprising reporter who can develop sources and contacts while gleaning information from agendas and public records requests. The reporter will break news that makes a difference in the community and tell stories through the lens of people affected. This reporter will hold elected officials accountable. A mixture of daily, trend and enterprising stories is expected. We’re looking for a self-paced reporter who can spot and report stories without waiting for assignments. The reporter must understand how to grow readership in the digital space, using analytics tools, headlines, SEO and more. Monitoring your stories’ performance is a must.
