Description:

The Herald and News in Klamath Falls, Ore., has an immediate opening for an associate news editor.

It is a great opportunity for a writer to work across all social media platforms; schedule stories for our website and handle production duties during the day. As an editor, the position allows for editorial decisions and is a leadership role. There is also an opportunity to write news stories as well. 

We have a small staff, but a large coverage area. The Herald and News is a five-day-a-week newspaper covering Klamath, Lake, Modoc, Siskiyou counties in Southern Oregon and Northern California. Our community has several intricate and interesting beats to cover, including water rights, the Kingsley airforce base and many more. 

What we are looking for is a versatile reporter/editor, whose heart is in the community he or she will be covering and who will write important news stories as well as plan the print product and schedule online posts. It’s a demanding job but a great opportunity for one to spread their wings. After a few years, many of our staffers move on to larger, metro newspapers or online sites; and we promote that.

The Herald and News has a growing social media following, and we are seeking someone with social media savvy who can work efficiently in a quick-paced environment. The newspaper is a 10,500-circulation paper just east of the Cascades in southern Oregon. 

Send your resume, cover letter, three references, writing examples and salary requirements to our editorial team at news@heraldandnews.com. A bachelor's degree is preferred but comparable experience is also acceptable.
