Description:

Yakima is a city of about 95,000 people. Altogether, about 250,000 people live in Yakima County, and slightly more than half of them are Hispanic.

We need a bilingual multimedia journalist who can help us reach the entire community.

In this role, you’ll provide news coverage for Spanish-speaking communities in the Yakima Valley, using audio, video, data visualization and the written word.

The YHR is one of five pilot newspapers in the Microsoft journalism initiative. Adding you to this newsroom is crucial to the project's success — and, ultimately, to the future of those who live and work in the Yakima Valley.

A few specifics:

Requirements:

The Yakima Herald-Republic is a daily newspaper in Central Washington, an area dominated by vineyards, hop fields, wineries, brewpubs and eateries. If you enjoy the outdoors, you’ll love it here – we’re close to the Cascade Mountains, rivers, lakes, trails and forests. Appreciate the big city? Seattle and Portland are just a few hours away.

We’re part of the Seattle Times Co., a family-owned company committed to journalistic excellence. The Blethen family believes that decisions about the Yakima Herald-Republic are best made by the people who live and work here.

The company values diversity in the workplace as well as in our news coverage. The Yakima Herald-Republic is an equal opportunity employer.

To apply, send a cover letter, resume and links to managing editor Greg Halling at ghalling@yakimaherald.com.
