Job stability, a flexible full-time, four-day schedule and an affordable cost of living are just some of the benefits that come with a position in the Paxton Media Group’s newspaper design hub in Owensboro, Kentucky.

Due to the continued growth of our company, which has included the addition of eight community newspapers in the last 18 months, we have an immediate opening for a copy editor who places a premium on accuracy and timeliness. Candidates with a journalism or English background are preferred, with experience paginating with InDesign or a comparable design program required.

The position includes a full benefits package, including health insurance, matching 401(k) program and paid vacation.

Our hub consists of a night desk (news and sports) and a special pubs department. Night desk staff members have very flexible scheduling, working four 10-hour shifts each week. The special pubs department works daytime shifts Monday through Friday each week.

The hub handles production of many of Paxton’s publications throughout the Southeast, working with three press sites: one in Kentucky, one in North Carolina and one in Georgia. The night desk handles production of 14 publications, and the special publications department handles production of more than a dozen weeklies, as well as special sections and magazines.

Owensboro, located in Daviess County, which has a population of about 100,000, is just two hours from Nashville, Tennessee, and Louisville, Kentucky. Evansville, Indiana, is about 45 minutes from Owensboro. The cost of living is very affordable, with plenty of rental options throughout the area.
