Description:

State Government Reporter-Bismarck,
ND

The
Bismarck Tribune, the newspaper in the capital of North Dakota, has an opening
for a full-time state government reporter.

The
Tribune is a leader in covering state government and politics, a key watchdog
role for the state. North Dakota has a Republican supermajority, which
heightens the importance of strong reporting on the state Capitol.

The
successful candidate will be expected to write daily stories as well as
long-term investigative and enterprise stories. North Dakota has recently made
national headlines for its abortion ban, legislation on culture war issues, and
the prospect of Gov. Doug Burgum being Donald Trump’s running mate. The beat
also includes coverage of Theodore Roosevelt National Park, the future Theodore
Roosevelt Presidential Library and North Dakota’s congressional
delegation. 

The
position is based in the Tribune newsroom when the Legislature is not in
session, with space to work at the Capitol when legislators are in session
every two years. We prefer candidates with previous reporting experience, but
also will consider strong recent graduates. 

The
Tribune and its reporters routinely win statewide awards for their coverage. We
have a strong culture of collaboration in our newsroom, which makes it a great
environment for a reporter to develop skills and grow in the profession.

Bismarck
and neighboring Mandan are along the Missouri River with miles of trails for
outdoor recreation, along with a growing food and culture scene. The region
also offers prime hunting and fishing opportunities and an easy drive to a
national park. Bismarck-Mandan is a fun place to live and work, with the
amenities of a big city without the traffic and high cost of living.
