Weekly Editor

Website Albany Democrat-Herald

This is a full-time position for a tested community journalist who has 3-to-5 years of experience handling deadlines, producing journalism of all types, taking crisp photographs, writing opinion and working with community partners.

The successful candidate will feel driven to do a good job for the community and represent Mid-Valley Media and Lee Enterprises with the highest journalistic and professional standards.

With this position comes a great deal of autonomy to develop news budgets, assign stories and work with Lee’s Regional Design Center on a weekly basis. We are aggressive about digital publication of the news and using social media as a way to inform readers.

We’re interested in a journalist who knows the importance of attending local chamber of commerce meetings, participating as a volunteer in the community and building professional relationships with officials based in Lebanon, a growing city of about 15,000 with a growing and diversified economy.

The right candidate will work seamlessly with the editor, colleagues in the Mid-Valley Media group and have a knack for sharing content with all of our partners, including the Democrat-Herald in Albany, Gazette-Times in Corvallis and Philomath Express.

This is a dynamic job in the Willamette Valley with incredible opportunities for recreation.

Editors cover evening and weekend assignments, but have the ability to create much of their own schedule. Candidates must have a good driving record and provide their own insured vehicle. Candidates will be required to pass a background check and drug screening before employment.

Lee Enterprises offers a comprehensive benefit package to its full-time employees, which includes health insurance, 401K, dental and vision plans, flexible spending and health savings accounts, life insurance and long-term disability.

For consideration, please complete our online application.

Applications should include a cover letter, resume, three references and five clips of their work.
