We are a unicorn in the newspaper world — our company has no debt, it is profitable, and it has been owned by the same local family for more than 120 years (really!). 

    

Our website has a hard paywall (zero free stories a month) and it's up to individual reporters as to whether they participate in social media. We focus on writing well-crafted stories and don't chase clicks. 

    

Our company pays 100 percent of employees’ health insurance premiums. We outsource nothing to other states or countries. No far-away design centers, no editing hubs, no remote printing sites, no offshore customer service hives. It's all done in-house. 

    

The New York Times’ Travel section named the Rogue River, which is the lifeblood of our circulation area and fuels the local tourism industry during the summer months, as one of its 52 Places to Visit in 2018. 

    

Do we have your attention yet? 

    

The Grants Pass Daily Courier is hiring an education reporter to cover two school districts and a community college, plus other general assignment topics. We are an afternoon paper (yes, those still exist) with a circulation of 12,000. The shift is Tuesday through Saturday. 

    

Our newsroom staff is 17 members strong. No other media source, print, online or broadcast, comes close to covering our local market at the level we do, and our readers respond with loyalty to our newspaper. 

    

Previous reporting experience is required (college newspaper work welcome).
