Description:

The Herald and News of Klamath Falls, Ore., is looking for a key reporter for our growing newsroom. This position will cover local government, but also tackle a variety of breaking and investigative news for a four-day-a-week, 14,000-circulation morning newspaper with a large social media audience.

We’re a digital-first operation, featuring two Report for America corps members who concentrate on environmental reporting and photography. We’re pushing to expand our work in new ways — through new media to new readers and viewers. We also produce award-winning quarterly magazines that show off the beauty of our region and the skill of our writers.

The person we’re looking for will be good at multitasking, keeping track of events, meetings and trends. They must be successful in developing reliable sources and producing compelling work that attracts eyeballs and sparks conversation. You'll operate in a tight, small newsroom that likes to work hard and work together.

Klamath Falls is a great news town, home to many stories of regional and national importance. It is a growing city of 25,000 on the edge of Upper Klamath Lake and located in the heart of the high country of Southern Oregon; sandwiched between Crater Lake National Park and Mt. Shasta in Northern California. There are lots of outdoor opportunities — hiking, biking, birding, skiing, fishing and camping.
