Watchdog reporter emphasis on environmental issues

Salisbury, Md.

Situated between Atlantic Ocean and the Chesapeake Bay, residents of the Delmarva Peninsula consider the environment more than just a scenic view. We live in a place where Marylands famous blue crabs mean jobs, Delawares chickens are more than just Sunday dinner and the water that flows between Delaware, Maryland and Virginia is a way of life.

Delmarva Now, part of the USA TODAY Network, is seeking an experienced watchdog reporter who can examine the intersection of the environment, industry and communities across the Atlantic region. Interests should range from clean water and air, to weather, to the creatures and people who inhabit our region and stories will range from marine life stranded on local beaches to how big businesses pollute our major waterways.

Candidates must be passionate about making a positive difference in not just the local community, but the region at large, and telling stories in innovative, and often visual, ways. They must also recognize when an issue extends beyond one towns borders into the region as a whole, as the position covers three states and partners directly with The (Wilmington, Del.) News Journal.

The watchdog reporter, while helping unpack issues through the voices of real people and their experiences, must be able to fuse data with impact. We want someone who will help our readers better understand key community issues by unearthing government documents, searching court records, understanding regulatory databases and pursuing dogged reporting. There will be time for quick-hits on trending topics that have people talking, too.

Candidates must be self-starters, generating and producing high-quality work on a regular basis. Online research and computer-assisted reporting skills will set strong applicants apart from the rest.

Youll have advanced analytics tools to shape your reporting based on what resonates with the audience. We are a small newsroom, so everyone will from time to time pitch in for breaking news.

Delmarva Now includes The Daily Times and nine weekly publications covering Delaware, Maryland and Virginia coastal and Chesapeake Bay communities. As part of the USA Today Network, your breaking news and in-depth coverage would find a wide regional and national audience.

Our office is in Salisbury, Maryland, 45 minutes from Ocean City, Maryland, and Delaware beaches. The Delmarva Peninsula offers plenty of national and state parks to explore. Washington, D.C., Baltimore and Philadelphia are a day-trip away.

Please send cover letter, resume and links to your published work to Executive Editor Laura Benedict Sileo through the Gannett jobs site.


  • Bachelors degree in Journalism, Communication or equivalent in work and education.
  • Daily journalism experience.
  • Candidates must have a valid drivers license, personal vehicle and insurance.
  • Able to work some evenings, weekends and holidays, as needed.
