Reporter

Do you want to live in one of the most beautiful places in the country? Do you want to be part of a community that cares about the land and each other? And do you want to do the kind of journalism that serves the community and uses modern tools without abandoning long-held principles?

Consider the Methow Valley News, a 116-year-old, locally owned weekly near Washington’s North Cascades mountains. We are seeking a full-time news and feature reporter to help provide coverage of a rural but sophisticated community that values good journalism. We are a small organization with big ambitions. In 2015, the News won the SPJ Excellence in Journalism national award for deadline reporting by weeklies. Check our website, www.methowvalleynews.com, to see some of the special projects we have done over the past several years. We also have a very active social media presence and are committed to being a daily news and information source in addition to our print product.

News reporting and writing experience required, as are the ability to meet firm deadlines; the willingness to work nights and weekends as necessary; and photography skills. Design experience is a bonus. This could be an entry-level position for the right person, but we are looking for someone who already knows how to do journalism and is eager to join an experienced, capable staff (two of our current reporters have been here more than 10 years; our most-recent hire was formerly a correspondent for National Public Radio). Salary is competitive and will depend on experience; health care coverage is available. The position is open in April; relocation to the Methow Valley is required.

The Methow Valley is a year-round recreational destination point, featuring the largest groomed Nordic skiing trail system in North America. It is an active and involved community where the newspaper is regarded as a vital asset.
