The Current is Hiring a Part-Time News Reporter

Posted By on Thu, Jul 13, 2017 at 12:44 PM

  • San Antonio Current
We're looking to add a sharp, part-time news reporter to join the Current's news team — known for its smart, in-depth and accessible journalism. Could that be you? We'd like to hire someone who can quickly find, pitch, and write news stories for our daily online coverage and weekly print edition, and doesn't need too much direction to get it done right.

The job may send you to city hall meetings, protests, or press conferences — but most of your work will take place in the office. You should be familiar with local and state political/social issues and confident with general news-writing. Past reporting experience required (internships count!).

This person will report directly to our news editor and should be able to work 20 hours a week. We'll hash out your specific schedule later on.

To apply, please send a PDF of your resume, a brief cover letter, and up to five of your best writing samples to

San Antonio Current works for you, and your support is essential.

Our small but mighty local team works tirelessly to bring you high-quality, uncensored news and cultural coverage of San Antonio and beyond.

Unlike many newspapers, ours is free – and we'd like to keep it that way, because we believe, now more than ever, everyone deserves access to accurate, independent coverage of their community.

Whether it's a one-time acknowledgement of this article or an ongoing pledge, your support helps keep San Antonio's true free press free.
