Digital teams are typically paid less than "news" team. Unfortunately, that's common in most newsrooms.

Advice to Management

Understand that your digital journalists are still journalists - teach them to shoot and edit if they don't already know how and watch your digital and broadcast footprints flourish (please!).

    I applied through an employee referral I interviewed at The E.W. Scripps Company (Lansing, MI) in Oct 2020


    Lots of interviews, including a writing test. Very thorough. My point person was very on top of everything, and did a great job guiding me through the process, and alerting me when any extra steps were needed.

    Real life scenarios and what choices I would make.
