Description:

The Times-News, the most prominent news organization in an eight-county region of southern Idaho known as the Magic Valley, is seeking a versatile part-time general assignment news reporter.

This 30-hour/week reporting position will provide opportunities to write daily news, explore issues and trends that impact Idahoans, cover events, and craft profile stories on local people. Previous journalism experience is required. The position would be well-suited for entry-level applicants or more seasoned reporters seeking a step back from full-time responsibilities.

The largest city in the Magic Valley, with a population just over 50,000, Twin Falls is home to the region’s top medical facility (St. Luke’s Magic Valley) and one of the top junior colleges in the country (College of Southern Idaho). Retail shopping includes Costco, Target, Walmart, Fred Meyer and American Eagle, plus many others. Olive Garden, Texas Roadhouse, Applebee’s and Red Robin are among the chain restaurants.

Outdoor opportunities abound – from hiking and cycling to skiing and watersports, even BASE jumping from the Perrine Bridge, which spans a canyon about 500 feet above the Snake River. It’s the eighth highest bridge in the U.S. and the only legal destination nationally for year-round BASE jumping.

We offer an excellent benefits package, including medical, dental, vision, paid holidays and a generous paid time off policy. We are an equal-opportunity employer. You can see our website at www.magicvalley.com to learn more about our company.

Applicants should submit a resume, cover letter that explains your interest in the job and in journalism, and three to five clips demonstrating a range of reporting and writing ability. Apply at www.lee.net/careers.

This is an exciting time to be part of change at the Times-News, part of the Lee Enterprises family of local newsrooms. The top editor recently joined from USA TODAY to lead a vision built around serving community, connecting people, exploring issues, and celebrating successes. We’re just getting started. Join us and make a difference.
