Come work in the most beautiful part of Texas! The Alpine Avalanche is seeking a managing editor who can be a leader in both the newsroom and in the community. The Avalanche is an award-winning weekly newspaper in Brewster County, the largest county in Texas. We are the home of Sul Ross State University and the gateway to Big Bend National Park. We cover it all - county and city government, schools, sports, cops and courts, civic events and community happenings. If you've got a passion for producing community journalism at its finest, we want to talk to you. We need someone with strong news judgment and an ability to work with employees of various degrees of experience. We want someone who can turn a dull press release into a journalistic gem; someone who is well versed in AP style; someone comfortable with interviewing everyone from the governor to the kindergarten class; and someone handy with a camera or not afraid to learn. Having some experience with sports reporting is especially helpful! The person we hire will also be responsible for working with the publisher in planning special sections, and developing ideas into stories. The successful applicant will directly be responsible for the editorial product, from planning to production, as well as managing our full time reporter and sports stringer. We offer a competitive starting salary with opportunities for advancement. You are eligible for health benefits, as well as vacation and sick/personal leave, after a probationary period. We are part of Granite Publications, a group that prefers to recruit from within and that means your job with us could be the first step toward the future you've always wanted. Please e-mail a resume, cover letter, and salary requirements to publisher@alpineavalanche. For more information about Alpine and the Big Bend area, visit our web site at
