General Assignment/Culture & Diversity

The Courier Journal and courierjournal.com are seeking a general assignment reporter to focus on cultural and diversity trends in our Louisville metropolitan region and across Kentucky. We want a storyteller with keen observational skills, the ability to navigate data trends and the comfort level to canvass our communities for meaningful stories that break new ground. This reporter will write stories at the intersection of equality, race, religion, age, ethnicity and gender. The successful candidate will have a proven track record in conceiving and delivering enterprise stories that rarely, if ever, come from agendas to public meetings. We are seeking someone who can identify trends, champion new and often unheard voices in the community, and take readers to places they've never been through sophisticated storytelling.

This reporter will be expected to write daily stories, signature enterprise pieces and occasional profiles. Comfort in front of the camera and Spanish-speaking skills are a plus.

Louisville is Kentucky's largest city with a proud history rooted to the Ohio River. The Courier Journal is a 10-time Pulitzer Prize-winning news organization in a metro area known for its world-class bourbon (and their numerous brands and distilleries); a rich, but affordable quality of life; a vibrant food, fun and outdoors scene; and Churchill Downs, home of the world-famous Kentucky Derby.

Application Instructions

When applying, please include a single document with as much of the following as possible:

a brief cover letter explaining your interest and fit for the position, your updated resume, and portfolio/clips/links to a few samples of your work.

It's important that these items be assembled into a single document (preferably in PDF format). The application will only allow one document upload. Completing these steps will ensure that you receive the highest consideration.

We offer a competitive base salary and career growth opportunities. We also offer you a comprehensive benefits package which includes medical, dental, vision, life insurance, short-term disability, long-term disability, Paid Time Off, Company Paid Holidays, employee discount programs and domestic partner benefits. Our 401(k) is top-notch and the contributions you make up to the first 5% are eligible for a 100% company match.


Gannett Co., is a proud equal opportunity employer. We are a drug free, EEO employer committed to a diverse workforce.
