These journalists will report to editors in two of our Portland suburban bureaus and contribute to our daily digital/social media products and collaborate on special sections and web-based projects. Beats likely will include local government/education, breaking news and enterprise reporting, and could require weekend assignments. Work will be done remotely or in-office, as needed.

Reporter

At the Blue Mountain Eagle, we're a small, tight-knit team that does big-time work: This year we took home five awards in the Oregon Newspaper Publishers Association Better Newspaper Contest, including honors for educational coverage, government reporting and feature writing as well as overall excellence.

Our goal is to continue to build on the Eagle's long tradition of high-quality journalism. To that end, we've brought in a veteran editor to mentor and challenge our staff. Now we're looking for a talented, energetic reporter to raise the bar even higher.

Located in beautiful John Day, Oregon, halfway between Bend and Boise, the Eagle is Oregon's oldest weekly newspaper, with a proud history of community journalism dating back to 1868.

Here you'll find loads of small-town charm in a historic mining community in the midst of reinventing itself with several exciting civic improvement projects. You'll be surrounded by scenic forests and rugged mountains, with year-round recreational opportunities that range from hunting and fishing to hiking, camping, snowmobiling and horseback riding.

You'll also find plenty of opportunities to show what you can do as a journalist. This community is at the center of an evolving natural resource restoration economy that frequently garners statewide and even national attention.

Residents are engaged and politically active in local and national debates, and hard-hitting stories are never hard to find. Ongoing topics include state and federal policies, forest health, logging, public lands grazing, water supply, wildlife habitat improvements and wildfire resilience, in addition to coverage of small-town life and local government. The position offers a wealth of breaking news and enterprise opportunities.

If you're a hard-bitten veteran, the news environment here in Grant County will put your abilities to the test. If you're just starting out in journalism, this is a great place to learn the business.

The Eagle is part of EO Media Group, an award-winning and innovative news organization with an active family of owners who care about their publications and the people who work for them. This position offers excellent advancement opportunities in a company that prefers to hire from within. EO Media Group owns 17 newspapers and journals that provide accurate, fair and timely reporting about the people and issues impacting the communities we serve in the Pacific Northwest, reflecting the responsibility and spirit of a free press.

We seek a journalist who is passionate about local news and excited about the opportunity to publish in print, online and through social media. Candidates must be able to generate story ideas, take photographs, develop sources, prepare updates for the web and social media, and work in a cooperative team environment. Journalistic integrity is a must.

Journalism education or experience is required for this full-time (37.5 hours per week) position. When applying, upload resume, letter of interest and three or more clips.
