PennLive / The Patriot-News

Do you crave the adrenaline rush that comes with breaking a big story?
Are you a natural at drilling down on that story and keeping it in the headlines for days?
If so, PennLive is looking for a digital-savvy reporter to join our breaking news team.
The ideal candidate will be adept at developing sources on the crime beat to regularly break news and dig deeper for thoughtful follows.
We need an individual who can quickly – and frequently – generate concise copy, compelling ledes and enticing SEO headlines.
You also must be a collaborator, willing to work closely with our social media and photo/video teams.
You’ll be part of a multi-department group that generates blanket coverage of crime, traffic crashes, severe weather – or anything our readers need (or want) to know about.
PennLive is a statewide news gathering organization based in Harrisburg, the state’s capital.
We also have reporters in Philadelphia, Pittsburgh and Baltimore.
We regularly produce national, award-winning investigative, breaking news and enterprise content in news and sports. And, we average about 4.5 million unique visitors a month.
