Company: Del Rio News-Herald
Seeking a great M.E.
Job Status:  Full-time
Ad Expires: 
June 13, 2013
Job ID: 1492305


The Del Rio News-Herald, a community paper on the Texas-Mexico border, is looking for a new managing editor. We need someone passionate about journalism who can edit, write and take a leadership role in the newsroom. Our managing editor is out there on the frontlines, reporting and getting involved with the community as well as supervising news coverage and editing copy. Experience with open records is a plus. Knowing Spanish would help, but it’s not necessary.

Ours is a small but dedicated newsroom. We publish an afternoon paper four times a week, Tuesday-Friday, and a morning paper on Sundays. This is a great news town, with plenty to report on education, immigration, international trade, crime, health care, water, ranching, hunting, the environment and much more. We have a beautiful lake, Lake Amistad, which has an international reputation as a prime location for bass fishing. And we have ancient pictographs in our canyons, believed to be thousands of years old and perhaps humankind's oldest known communication. We have a thriving community theater, a lively roller derby team and lots of 5K walk/runs.

Del Rio has a population of about 40,000, including Laughlin Air Force Base. As might be expected, we have excellent Mexican food and our people are friendly and helpful. If you're a level-headed, detail-oriented editor/reporter who loves people and news and enjoys putting in a good day's work, we look forward to welcoming you to your new hometown!
