Paxton Media Group’s news design hub in Owensboro, Kentucky, is seeking a visual journalist with copy desk skills to work on the hub’s night desk. 

The hub handles copy desk operations for many of PMG's publications throughout the Southeast, working with three press sites: one in Kentucky, one in North Carolina and one in Georgia.

This position requires nighttime and weekend availability. Night desk staff members have very flexible scheduling, working four 10-hour shifts each week.

In order to qualify for consideration, candidates must have a bachelor’s degree in journalism or three to five years of newsroom experience in a deadline-driven environment. Candidates should have good news judgment, as well as headline-writing and editing skills.

Owensboro is just two hours from Nashville, Tennessee, and two hours from Louisville, Kentucky. Evansville, Indiana, is about 45 minutes from Owensboro. The cost of living is affordable, and there are plenty of rental options throughout the tri-state.
