Job description:

Date Published: October 15, 2018
Business Sector: Newspapers / Wires
Job Status: Full-time
income: Not Specified


The Idaho Press, a everyday newspaper in southwest Idaho, is seeking a digital first editor, someone who loves to be first in telling a story, whether that’s posting breaking news or sharing award-winning investigative journalism.
We are seeking for Somebody with new ideas on community outreach, audience engagement and social media strategies — and the enthusiasm and energy to execute on those ideas.
The ideal candidate is someone who thrives under pressure and likes competition, someone who doesn’t want to get beat to a story, but when they do, they look forward to the next challenge.
This editor will look at what works with an online audience not only in terms of content but also how, when and where that content is delivered on multiple platforms.
The digital first editor will do a little bit of everything, including original reporting to get stories posted quickly, editing copy, organizing stories on our home page, posting to social media and shooting video.
This editor also will help to curate the columns, letters, guest opinions and editorial cartoons that go into our opinion page and will be tasked with taking the opinion section into its next evolution of audience engagement through social media.
The Idaho Press covers the Treasure Valley, an area that is teeming with news and plenty of things to do. The Treasure Valley features great weather with four seasons and moderate winters and is close to world-class outdoor amenities.
The Idaho Press is owned by Adams Publishing Group, which owns and operates community newspapers across the country, including the Meridian Press, the Emmett Messenger-Index, the Kuna Melba News and Boise Weekly locally and the Idaho Falls Post Register and Idaho State Journal in eastern Idaho.
