Reporters work with section editors to develop story concepts and generate accurate and complete coverage. Reporters are expected to maintain an extensive understanding of community tides and happeneings. While section editors are depended upon to determine the content of their sections, the story research and development is the primary duty of the reporter.

PHOTOJOURNALISTS & GRAPHIC DESIGNERS

Photographers and graphic designers do not receive section assignments but might find a niche in certain areas. The media that these staff members generate should not serve as a supplement to written content but convey a strong narrative in itself. (CLICK HERE TO TO APPLY TO THE VILLANOVAN PHOTO STAFF)
