Reporter REF#: JG30638

Deadline: June 27, 2019
Salary:

Description

The award-winning Westlock News weekly newspaper, a past AWNA General Excellence champion and CCNA Blue Ribbon winner, is looking for a general reporter.
 
Great staff are rewarded and coveted, so if you excel, advancement within the chain is possible. Most of the reporters who have passed through the News over the last decade have gone on to daily newspapers, magazines, communications position within government, or have advanced within the chain.
 
The Westlock area has a total population of roughly 12,000 (5,000 in town, and 7,000 in the county) and is ideally located just 45 minutes north of Edmonton. The News is part of the Great West Newspaper chain; a group that includes newspapers such as the St. Albert Gazette, Rocky Mountain Outlook and Okotoks Western.

Qualifications

You’ll need to have a journalism degree, or diploma, a car that runs and a lot of energy. Previous experience as a reporter would be nice, but isn’t necessary.
 
Salary will be based initially on experience and, quite frankly, how good one’s work is throughout the three-month probation period. That said, we are more than competitive salary-wise versus other weekly newspaper chains throughout Alberta and offer a good medical and benefits package.
