Tired of the depressing death march of corporate-owned newspapers?

Then come work for a five-days-a-week paper that has been owned by the same local family since 1897.

The Grants Pass Daily Courier is a unicorn in the newspaper world — we have no debt, we are profitable and our circulation is on the rise.

If you're fluent in AP style, obsessive over the details and at ease with designing pages, read on.

We focus our energy on our well-read and well-respected print edition. There are days when we have four or five staff-bylined stories on our front page. Our website has a hard paywall — zero free stories a month. It all adds up to a recipe for success that's unheard of in newspaper publishing these days.

Our company pays 100% of employees’ health insurance premiums. We outsource nothing to other states or countries. No faraway design centers, no editing hubs, no remote printing sites. Humans pick up the phone here when a customer service call comes in. It's all done in-house.

No other media source — print, online or broadcast — comes close to covering our local market at the level we do, and our readers respond with loyalty to our newspaper.

On top of all that, we've won more Oregon Newspaper Publishers Association awards than any other daily in the state the last two years.

Our presses roll at 11:15 a.m. each day, so our copy desk works from 5:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. That leaves plenty of time in the afternoons to enjoy the near-limitless outdoor recreation in the Grants Pass area and the Rogue River valley.

Previous experience as a copy editor or journalist is preferred. To apply for this position, send a resume with your work history to Listen up, this is very important: Use “Copy editor” as your email subject. Please email any questions you may have to the same address. We hire quickly here, so don't delay if you're interested.
