The Grants Pass Daily Courier, a five-day-per-week, independently-owned newspaper with a circulation of 12,000 and a strong online presence, seeks an editor to lead an aggressive and talented newsroom.
The person we are looking for will lead by example, coaching reporters in an effort to elevate their work to the next level, while at the same time being willing to get into the trenches and occasionally report and write stories.
The editor is expected to write four editorials or other opinion pieces per week. The newspaper serves all of Josephine County and parts of Jackson and Douglas counties in Southern Oregon.
The region is generally conservative, so the tone on the Opinion page should reflect this fact. However, the editor must also be willing to make arguments that cut against the grain of conservative orthodoxy when it is in the best interest of the community.
The newsroom includes five reporters who are led by the city editor; a two-person sports desk; a two-person features desk that often contributes to the daily report; a four-person universal copy desk; a full-time photographer; and a news clerk who handles obituaries and many other functions of the day-to-day operations in the newsroom. It is up to the editor to work with people in all of these areas in order to bring together a solid report five days a week.
Photographic and layout skills are helpful, but not required. The right person will learn these skills in time, even if they do not initially possess them.
Grants Pass is in the beautiful Rogue River Valley. There's plenty to do outdoors, including floating the river, fishing, hiking, camping, and skiing — to name just a few. But there's much more. The region has a vibrant arts scene, with the Rogue Theatre in Grants Pass bringing in major national touring musicians, and a hopping downtown music scene that features an abundance of local talent. There are several theater troupes, including Barnstormers Theatre, the longest continuously operating community theater company in Oregon. We are just 45 minutes from the world famous Oregon Shakespeare Festival in Ashland.
Grants Pass is situated along the I-5 corridor, about four hours south of Portland and six hours north of San Francisco. The region is served by the Rogue Valley International Airport in Medford, which is just a 30-minute drive away.
If you think this is the type of challenge that is right for you, send a resume, cover letter, salary requirements and five copies of your current paper to Travis Moore, publisher, at the Grants Pass Daily Courier, P.O. Box 1468, Grants Pass, OR 97528, by May 1; or send your resume, cover letter and the URL of your current news organization to Moore at
