Deep South Today is a nonprofit hub of local newsrooms that includes Mississippi Today and Verite News.

Founded in 2016, Mississippi Today is now one of the largest newsrooms in the state, and in 2023 it won the Pulitzer Prize for Local Reporting. Verite News launched in 2022 in New Orleans, where it covers inequities facing communities of color.

With our regional scale and scope, Deep South Today is rebuilding and re-energizing local journalism in communities where it had previously eroded and ensuring its long-term growth and sustainability.

Below is a list of current open positions on our teams. We encourage members of traditionally underrepresented communities to apply for these jobs, including people of color, LGBTQ+ people and people with disabilities. You can find the details for each open position – including location, roles and responsibilities, and benefits – in each job listing.

For questions about any of our open positions, please contact our Director of People and Culture Dylan Penny at [email protected].
