We are seeking an energetic and dedicated community journalist to fill a great job in a great town.

The weekly Culpeper Times, the largest circulation newspaper in Culpeper, Va., is seeking its next editor. Located just 70 miles from Washington, DC, Culpeper County is a mix of rural and suburban with a thriving “small town” downtown. It’s filled with interesting people and good stories. 

We’re looking for an enthusiastic journalist with the experience to write everything from local government issues stories to features. Reporting and writing are at the forefront of the job. While the Times has a network of freelance contributors, the editor should enjoy being in the community, cultivating — and producing — multiple stories every week.

A key goal of the editor also should be to embrace a digital first approach, helping build audience and engagement through timely news coverage, promoted through social media. The Culpeper Times is part of InsideNoVa.com, Northern Virginia’s largest news site.

Of course, the editor shapes the Times’s editorial report, and is a primary face of the newspaper in an engaged, vibrant community. Among the position’s responsibilities include producing special sections and publications, often in collaboration with partners in the community.
