Description:

The Keene Sentinel, an award-winning newspaper, is looking for an afternoon/night editor to work in a lively news environment.

The Sentinel is an independent, family-owned community news organization in southwestern New Hampshire.  

Drawing from its rich local legacy as one of the oldest newspapers in the United States – founded in 1799 – The Sentinel practices innovative, forward-looking approaches that have generated significant community support. Through work with organizations such as Trusting News and the Poynter Institute, this includes cross-departmental initiatives to increase media literacy and credibility; transform our criminal justice coverage to hold law-enforcement agencies accountable; and directly and deeply engage with those we serve.   

Working an afternoon/night shift Monday through Friday, this editor will serve as a key bridge between the local news and copy desks, helping edit stories written by the reporting team, directing afternoon and evening breaking news coverage and working with the managing editor Monday through Thursday to lay out the following day’s newspaper. Friday’s duties will include proofing the front section of the weekend edition.

This in-person position provides an excellent opportunity to work in a digital-focused newsroom that produces powerful, collaborative journalism with measurable impact. The Sentinel publishes throughout the week on its digital platforms, as well as in its six-day print newspaper. 

The Sentinel is an equal opportunity employer and offers a comprehensive benefits package and an excellent working environment. We believe attracting and retaining diverse staff is crucial to serving our community and fulfilling our mission. 

Please send your cover letter and resume to Executive Editor-Local News Anika Clark at aclark@keenesentinel.com. No phone calls, please.
