Dear Mr. Armor:

I'm looking for a position as a news correspondent and that is why I'm writing this cover letter today. I noticed your posting on JobBankUSA.com. I have experience bringing in stories from local spots as well as from distant cities. I was a broadcast journalist and one of two news correspondents for POPP Radio and believe this has qualified me for whatever assignments you offer me.

If you'd like to meet me in person to go over the duties, I'll be happy to accommodate your schedule. Please phone me at 695-888-8756 and give me a time and date that works for you.

I really appreciate being considered for this job. I know that news correspondents are in great demand and I'd be pleased to be one of them at your station.
