Newsroom
    The Daily Wildcat employs about 80 reporters, photographers, copy editors and page designers during the school year, and about 20 during the summer. Turnover does occur in mid-semester. Reporters cover and write about news, sports and entertainment events and are assigned to a specific section of the paper. Photographers will shoot feature photos, sports games, meetings and other events. Copy editors should know AP style and have a good eye for detail. They generally work evenings. Page designers also work evenings and should be familiar with page design software such as Indesign. Though no prior journalism experience is required, reporters and photographers will be expected to submit an application and samples of their work. Pay is typically by assignment; editors are on salary. Contact editor@wildcat.arizona.edu; phone 621-7579, or Mark Woodhams, Wildcat adviser, at woodhams@email.arizona.edu
