Do you have the skills and drive to help the copy/design desk, while still maintaining that passion for grabbing a pen, notebook and camera and covering a story? If you have the skills and desire to wear both hats, The Garden City Telegram may have just the opportunity for you.

We're looking for a news editor who can help the news desk with copy editing and page design, assist the managing editor with coaching reporters and managing the newsroom, and who also is able to pick up some reporting duties. The ideal candidate will have sharp editing skills, a knack for headline writing and the ability to design clean, creative and compelling pages. And if you're good enough to help polish our reporters' work, we're hoping that means you've got the flair for storytelling, the eye for AP style and the inquisitve mind to help us on the reporting side, too. Experience with InDesign preferred. Experience with online editing, as well as new media and social media endeavors, also ideal.

The Telegram, part of the Harris Group, offers a generous salary and benefits package, a chance to work with an outstanding staff and opportunity for advancement. We are a six-day, morning daily.
