The newspaper has a tradition of aggressive state government coverage. And with the growth of digital/mobile audiences, more West Virginians than ever can read our coverage.
So we’re looking to fill a vital news beat.
Dave Boucher, our capitol bureau chief, is moving on to take a job with the Tennessean newspaper in Nashville, where he’ll be covering an education beat. It’s a good move for Dave to a bigger market.
Over the past couple of years on the West Virginia government and politics beat, Dave has made us look good. He’s smart and has brought boundless energy to his work. We’ll miss him a lot.
Now we’re looking for someone who will be a good match for this job
This reporter covers the governor, the Legislature, state agencies and state politics as well as stories involving West Virginia’s congressional delegation. Resulting stories often lead our local news coverage in print and online. The stories from this beat should be consequential and influential. We want to lead the agenda.
We take pride in our daily newspaper and also enthusiastically break news online. Reporters on this beat provide live coverage of daily events, often through Twitter, and are responsible for regularly updating a Capitol Notebook blog. Final versions of stories for print and online take a step back and provide context.
