Description:

Who we are:

We are an award-winning community, weekly newspaper in the gorgeous northeast corner of Washington state, right on the Washington/Idaho border. Newport, Wash., and Priest River, Idaho, are quaint, friendly communities with lots going on. We cover two counties, four school districts, five cities, two states and a plethora of community events and organizations. We believe in accurate, reliable journalism and focus solely on our local communities. We pride ourselves on work-life balance and a fun work environment. We offer flexible hours, 401(k), a health insurance stipend, vacation, sick and holiday pay, and quite often snacks in the kitchen. 

Where we are: 

If you enjoy outdoor recreation, we are the place for you. Water sports, snow sports, biking, hunting, fishing, birding, hiking, ATVing and all four seasons - we have it all, right here. Community theatre and artist associations are abundant. In the mood for excellent shopping, restaurants and large-venue theatre and live music? We're within an hour of Spokane, Wash., and 40 minutes from Sandpoint, Idaho. 

Who we hope you are: 

The perfect candidate is an experienced reporter/editor. That experience can be from either a journalism degree or work in the field, or both. Knowledge of AP style and competency in photography is required. InDesign/Photoshop knowledge and layout experience desired, but not required. We want you to learn our community, gain institutional knowledge of our beats, and be a long-term member of our team. Room to grow. 

Come join our team and make a positive difference in the world.
