[12/7/23]  Mississippi Free Press (Jackson, Miss.) Seeks State Reporter

The state reporter will work with the news editor to pitch, identify and pursue story assignments. The reporter should live in or be willing to relocate to the Jackson metro area and can work from the office and home on a hybrid basis, including required in-office meetings and trainings in the Jackson office. You will be responsible for producing multiple stories a week, with a mix of short, quick-turnaround breaking news stories as well as medium-length and longer, more in-depth stories.

The reporter will be required to attend press conferences and other events, particularly in the capital city, and will be required to report on location at the Mississippi Capitol Building most days during the legislative session each spring (the legislative session usually runs from January through March). In some years, this may include a short special session lasting days or weeks after the regular session ends if the governor calls one (in rare years, governors have called multiple special sessions in a single year). Interest in covering the legislative process and a willingness to learn, adapt and sometimes work long hours when the Legislature runs late into the night is vital for performing this position well.
