Job Description

The Wisconsin State Journal, south-central Wisconsin's leading news source, is seeking an aggressive and motivated reporter to cover K-12 education, from the classroom to the state Capitol.


Few topical areas touch readers more than their children’s schools or the tax dollars used to pay for them. We need someone who can cut through the jargon, build sources among competing interests and identify stories that will have the most impact.


Experience in watchdog reporting, frequent use of public records law and a high comfort level working with data is required. This position also demands an ability to engage audiences via social media, report in real time for our online platforms and an aptitude or desire to shoot video. At least five years of daily newspaper reporting experience is preferred. Past educational coverage is desired, but being a self-starter and having a demonstrated work ethic matter more.


To be considered for the position, applicants must apply online by June 5. Please include a cover letter and five samples of your work or links to five recent stories.


Capital Newspapers Offers:


Competitive salary and generous paid time off

Great benefits package (medical, dental, vision, life, flexible spending, STD and LTD, matching 401k plan)

Paid maternity and paternity leave

Culture of teamwork, professional work environment, and a focus on growth opportunities

Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer


The Capital Newspapers organization is an affirmative action employer. We are committed to maintaining a workforce that accurately reflects our audience and expands our voice.
