*Relocation to Memphis, TN required*


The Daily Memphian is a locally led, locally owned online news site focused on all aspects of the Memphis area, from local government to high school sports to food, arts & culture, business, education, neighborhoods and much more. We have a newsroom of 35 full-time staff plus 20 freelancers. Our full-time news staff is nearly 50% female and a third people of color. The Atlantic praised us as a “lab experiment for local news” and NiemanLab at Harvard wrote, “The Daily Memphian’s model deserves attention.”


The Daily Memphian is looking for that veteran reporter with a proven track record of investigative work. We are looking for someone with the experience to tackle complex issues, hold public officials and local leaders accountable, and provide timely analysis on the most prevalent issues facing our community. The ideal candidate is someone who cannot only expose wrong-doing but is able to research and present possible solutions. This is not an entry-level position. We are looking for someone with three-plus years of experience working in a daily journalism environment.
