Are you a Swiss army knife journalist who enjoys all aspects of community news and sports coverage, would rather plan ahead than procrastinate and wants to learn and grow as a newsroom leader? If you said yes, this opportunity might be for you.
The Mount Olive Tribune is seeking a news editor. The successful candidate will have a vision for how to plan and produce a timely, relevant weekly paper that looks ahead more than it looks backward and prioritizes enterprise reporting and storytelling over after-the-fact event coverage.
This is an entry-level position ideal for a skilled reporter seeking leadership experience. You'll be a player-coach who's producing content every day along with editing and planning.
Mount Olive is a town of 4,700 people in Wayne and Duplin counties. It's home to the University of Mount Olive and to Mt. Olive Pickle Co., the country's top-selling brand of pickles, peppers and relishes. The town is 20 minutes from Seymour Johnson Air Force Base in military-friendly eastern North Carolina.
The Tribune is part of Restoration Newsmedia, a joint venture of two family-owned North Carolina dailies working to preserve and restore authentic community journalism. This full-time position includes benefits and the potential to grow with our company for the right person.
