The Chattanooga Times Free Press is seeking a conservative editorial writer for the newspaper's Free Press editorial page.
The Times Free Press is unique in that it has two editorial pages — the liberal Times page and the conservative Free Press page. We're looking for a strong and unwavering conservative voice who will champion free markets, free enterprise and conservative social values.
The successful candidate will write editorials, columns and commentary for print and web publication; handle social media; represent the newspaper through public speaking engagements and assist the opinion editor in recruiting op/ed material for the page. A proven ability to meet daily deadlines and a commitment to teamwork is essential. Newspaper experience is preferred. This position reports to the Opinion Editor, who coordinates and edits content for the two pages.
The successful candidate will be able to write timely editorials and columns about local, state and national issues with the goal of promoting discussion in the community and offering solutions.
The Times Free Press is a successful mid-sized newspaper that is part of a financially solid company. In recent years, our newsroom has won national awards for writing and been recognized for our investigative reporting. We have a news hole that would be envied by most papers and are currently installing new, multi-million dollar printing presses. Plus, Chattanooga is a phenomenal place to live. It is one of the top outdoor destinations in the country and has been a magnet for big industry in recent years. There is a thriving downtown that is built along the Tennessee River. The city is also within a two hour drive to Atlanta and Nashville.
Please submit resume, writing samples and references to Opinion Editor Mark Kennedy at
