Description:

The Malone Telegram, a daily morning newspaper in Northern New York’s Franklin County, has an immediate opening for a full-time news reporter.

The Telegram is a six-day per week morning newspaper in a competitive market with a strong emphasis on local news coverage.

The ideal candidate will have strong communication skills, work well under deadline pressure and have the versatility and intellectual curiosity necessary to juggle a variety of tasks. Candidates should be able to write concisely and clearly, develop relationships with sources and have an ability to take initiative. Photo and video skills are a plus. 

While the Telegram’s coverage is largely based in the northern half of Franklin County, its location as the county seat makes it the definitive voice of the area, which encompasses the St. Lawrence River Valley and the Adirondack Mountains. The Telegram has no problem finding news.

Malone is home to a highly rated, family oriented alpine skiing area, a 36-hole Robert Trent Jones designed golf course and numerous ponds, streams and lakes — an outdoor enthusiasts paradise.

The Johnson Newspaper Corporation is headquartered in Watertown, New York, and publishes daily and weekly newspapers across the state, including the north country, Western New York and the Hudson Valley. Its flagship publication is the highly respected Watertown Daily Times.

Send all application materials, including a cover letter, resume, clips and references to JNC St. Lawrence/Franklin County Editor Tom Graser at tgraser@wdt.net and Watertown Daily Times Assistant Managing Editor Sydney Schaefer at sschaefer@wdt.net.

The Johnson Newspaper Corporation is an equal opportunity employer.
