The Portsmouth Daily Times seeks an energetic, forward-thinking editor to lead both the Daily Times and the weekly Community Common.

The Daily Times publishes six days a week, Monday-Saturday. The Community Common is our Sunday publication. In addition to our print products the newspaper has a robust website, www.portsmouth-dailytimes.com, and social media presence. See our website at portsmouth-dailytimes.com. Combined circulation is over 75,000 print readership, 120,000 monthly website viewership and over 15,000 connections on social media.

Our editor will be an individual who understands how to connect content to our readers by providing depth and context to the news we deliver. The successful candidate will be someone who can mentor a staff and develop an open dialogue with readers and community leaders.

In addition, our editor is part of the management team of the newspaper and is a part of the face of our newspaper in the communities we serve.

Additionally, s/he will:

  • Have a solid understanding of the fundamentals of local news.
  • Strive to be the leading information source in our communities.
  • Understand the value of social media and use it as much as an engagement tool as a promotional tool.
  • Constantly search for new ways to tell stories and present news, both online and in print.
  • Demonstrate integrity and dedication through a comprehensive approach to balanced and credible journalism.
  • Be a constant, contributing reporter.
  • Become an important part of the management team of the newspaper
  • Represent the newspaper in the community and interact with community leaders.

If you value local journalism, love nothing better than helping journalists grow in their craft, believe newspapers – both online and print – remain the foundation of an informed community, and are looking for a great community in which to live, we want to hear from you.

Email us your resume`, five working links to some of your latest and best reporting (editorials, too, if you have them), and a cover letter explaining why you’re the best person for this job. Please send those documents to Hope R. Comer, hcomer@aimmediamidwest.com
