Overview

The Pulitzer Prize-winning Post and Courier is looking for a quick-response reporter to cover breaking news of all kinds across all platforms.

The Post and Courier, the largest daily newspaper in South Carolina, has developed a reputation as one of the nation’s leading watchdog news organizations.

We cover breaking news a bit differently. We don’t chase every crime, crash or fire. We pursue the stories that matter most to our readers. Our goal is quality over quantity. We write the quick online version, then follow up throughout the day working toward a themed, bigger picture enterprise story by the end of the day. Then we look for more enterprise angles to keep the story going. This approach led to the Walter Scott coverage being a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize. https://www.postandcourier.com/business/p-c-a-pulitzer-finalist-for-breaking-news-photography/article_18824c1d-fbb3-5725-a015-6d1f8ae4b55b.html

The Post and Courier is a locally owned newspaper, investing in its newsroom and expanding statewide at a time when others are contracting. This year, we made a significant investment in the future with the purchase of a 2008 Goss Magnum Single Width Press.

Send a cover letter, resume and best clips to Managing Editor Autumn Phillips at aphillips@postandcourier.com. The Post and Courier is committed to building a diverse newsroom that reflects the people it covers and the audience it serves. Candidates are encouraged to highlight new perspectives they can bring to our team.

We are an equal opportunity employer and drug-free workplace.
