The Las Vegas Sun is seeking an aggressive and enterprising reporter to lead our coverage of politics and elections. 

It’s a great time to be at the forefront of reporting on politics in Nevada, where the outcome of the 2024 presidential election could be decided in our swing state. The stakes are equally high in congressional races.

There’s no shortage of news on the campaign trail, bringing a need for a reporter who is fast on their feet and capable of telling stories of impact.

We want a storyteller who enjoys breaking down complex issues for consumption. Our ideal candidate can break news and then drill down on the topic to provide depth and analysis.

Your reporting will also focus on policy proposals involving health care, education, the environment and more.

The candidate must be able to work independently by identifying and producing compelling stories. 

The candidate must be capable at writing long-form narratives as well as covering breaking news with speed and accuracy. You’ll produce daily as well as mid- and longer-range enterprise stories.

The Las Vegas Sun is a product of Greenspun Media Group, a family-owned company that prides itself on operating collaboratively and collegially across all parts of our organization.
