Reporter openings @ new Ann Arbor newspaper, a news website with a biweekly print edition that's launching this July to replace the soon-to-be-shuttered Ann Arbor News, is hiring several journalists.

Crain's Detroit Business reported yesterday that the new media outlet plans to start hiring next month. So, interested journalists should probably start applying now.

Booth Newspapers, which owns both the closing newspaper and the new website, just posted this somewhat vague journalism job ad that seems like it could be related. So, check that out and fire off those resumes. Since they're a start-up, perhaps they'll consider recent grads.
