We have an opening for a complete journalist – a driven writer, photographer and storyteller, who knows that protecting the people’s right to know is as important as capturing the spirit of a community festival. An interest and ability to cover local government is key.

We aspire to give our communities the best coverage possible. We are looking for someone who relishes the role of a multi-faceted journalist and has a passion for weekly newspapers and community journalism.

Jackson County, WI is a beautiful rural area with a rich agricultural background and incredible opportunities for recreation.
