Great opportunity for an entry-level reporter to learn the ropes or a reporter looking to hone skills and live in an outdoor paradise. The Challis Messenger is hiring a full-time reporter for our weekly newspaper. You’ll cover a bit of everything – from elections to features to government meetings to outdoor recreation to community events to mining to land use issues. Photo skills are a plus. AP knowledge expected. Applicants must be committed to learning and being part of our small team.
Challis sits next to the Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness Area. The famed Middle Fork Salmon River is right here. Idaho’s tallest peak is a short jaunt away, as are 24 of the state’s tallest 25 peaks. We’re surrounded by the Salmon-Challis Forest. The Sawtooth Forest and Sawtooth National Recreation Area are nearby.
To apply, send clips, a detailed cover letter, resume and references to Messenger General Manager Shelley Ridenour at firstname.lastname@example.org; or P.O. Box 405, Challis, ID 83226.
