Report for America as The Berkshire Eagle’s State House Reporter

Since our return to local ownership in 2016, The Berkshire Eagle’s mission is to become the finest community newspaper in America. Through relentlessly local reporting on our 32 cities and towns in Berkshire County, Massachusetts, our staff punches above our weight class because we pursue stories that affect the Berkshires beyond the Berkshires. Our coverage area is both rural and urban, cultured and troubled, rich and poor.

The Berkshire Eagle and Report for America have joined forces to hire a State House reporter at The Eagle to provide Legislative coverage of issues affecting rural western Massachusetts.

This reporter will cover the Berkshires through the prism of State House public policy. This coverage is sorely lacking: Berkshire County is in Massachusetts, but doesn’t get local television news from Boston. Instead, the county gets TV news channels from Albany, N.Y., that don’t cover the Berkshires. This reporter shall cover the Berkshires in a way that commands the attention of Boston and ultimately pursue answers to why Massachusetts is leaving the Berkshires behind and provide solutions how the Berkshires can not only survive but thrive in the years to come.

We offer a competitive compensation package for the most qualified candidate, including health, dental, vision and life insurances.

The Berkshire Eagle is locally owned. To learn more about The Berkshire Eagle and its New England Newspapers Inc. family, visit www.neni.news. To apply for this position, visit the Report for America application page.

We’re looking forward to meeting you.

But we also have Olympic and World Cup alpine and Nordic skiers in our backyard and a strong local golf scene. Hunting is part of our way of life. And Manchester is the birthplace of fly fishing in America.

We offer a competitive compensation package for the most qualified candidate, including health, dental, vision, and life insurances and a 401K.
