Backup News Reporter
The Idaho Mountain Express newspaper is looking for an experienced journalist to serve as a backup news reporter to cover
for staff reporters when they are on vacation. Candidates must have a strong interest in community news and be a stickler for

up to 10 weeks a year.
The position could offer additional opportunities for reporting and writing work.
The backup reporter will be required to cover a wide variety of topics and must be able to write hard news and feature stories.
He/she will have to write about city and county governments, state agencies, nonprofit groups, environmental issues, health
issues, arts, events and other topics as assigned by the editor.
The successful candidate should have a relevant college degree and at least two years of reporting experience. Must be good
with computers and must know AP style.
The Express—recognized repeatedly by the National Newspaper Association as one of the best community newspapers in
the country—has a strong tradition of providing award-winning news coverage.
