The Press Democrat

Local News Reporter
The Press Democrat, winner of the 2018 Pulitzer Prize for breaking news reporting, is seeking a reporter to drive our afternoon and evening digital news report while contributing enterprise and features about Sonoma County and the surrounding North Coast. 

We are a healthy locally owned newspaper that values original ideas, aggressive reporting, authoritative writing and watchdog coverage that leads to change. Any member of our reporting team must know how to juggle daily stories, online posts, social media interaction and long-term enterprise and investigative projects. Data acquisition, analysis and presentation skills are a plus, as is fluency in Spanish.

We offer an opportunity to grow your career at our award-winning family of publications, with opportunities to contribute to our daily newspaper, website and regional magazine. All have been recognized as among the best in their respective categories, one of the reasons our news products enjoy some of the highest readership rates in California. We are passionate about our work and excited about the opportunities for local journalism in a digital age.

This position is based in Santa Rosa, an hour north of San Francisco, where vineyards give way to redwood forests and a scenic coast. The region, home to 650,000 people, is an international destination for tourists and produces some of the best wine and beer on the planet. Two colleges, along with thriving tech, farm and government sectors make this region of diverse communities an exciting and dynamic place to be a reporter.
