Coast Weekend Editor

The Daily Astorian, one of the Pacific Northwest’s best small newspapers, has a rare opportunity for a creative journalist with strong editing and writing skills and an eye for design. 

Coast Weekend is a weekly tabloid arts and lifestyle entertainment magazine, distributed widely in the community and inserted in The Daily Astorian. It is published every Thursday, focusing on the North Coast of Oregon and the Long Beach Peninsula in southwest Washington. The Columbia-Pacific is a vibrant region for the arts — from music festivals to community theater, Astoria’s FisherPoets Gathering to Cannon Beach’s Get Lit at the Beach. There are art walks, author readings, concerts, galleries and a multitude of other activities year-round. 

The Coast Weekend editor is responsible for every aspect of its publication — writing, coordinating coverage by freelancers, editing, and overseeing design. He or she will also direct a weekly feature called Weekend Break and participate in producing Our Coast, an award-winning annual magazine with circulation throughout the Pacific Northwest.

We are looking for an enthusiastic newsroom leader who is detail-minded, deadline-driven, can write and produce sparkling story packages, and will nurture and recruit freelance writers and columnists. 

We are a digital-first newsroom. The successful applicant will have demonstrated multimedia and social media skills, and help manage our tourism portal at DiscoverOurCoast.com.

Benefits include paid time off, insurances and a 401(k)/Roth 401(k) retirement plan. Send resume, writing samples and cover letter to EO Media Group, PO Box 2048, Salem, OR 97308-2048, or e-mail hr@eomediagroup.com
