Metro Times is looking for a full-time news reporter


Good news for people who love, well, news: Metro Times, Detroit's award-winning alt-weekly, has an immediate opening for an ass-kicking, muckraking staff writer.

They should know how cultivate a wide array of sources, have experience in digging through public records, and have familiarity with new-media best practices.
