Oregon paper seeks a business reporter
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 whether they participate in social media. 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. 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.

The Grants Pass Daily Courier is hiring a business reporter to cover a compelling mix of industries in a county of 85,000 people. We are the home of Dutch Bros. Coffee’s corporate headquarters and also the epicenter of Oregon’s cannabis farming trade. 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.
