We’re looking for a new and enthusiastic editor to guide the award-winning newspaper’s editorial content. Our growing communities offer the perfect environment.

The Torrington Telegram, a two-day weekly in Torrington, is looking for our next Editor to lead our news department. We believe strong community newspapers lead the way and our news content and our editorial page backs up our passion for local news.
