News Production Manager

The Times-News, the most prominent news organization in an eight-county region of Southern Idaho known as the Magic Valley, is seeking a versatile and organized leader to manage digital and print processes. You will be the glue in our digital-first newsroom, working hand-in-hand with three editors to ensure our stories are packaged to win online and look sharp when they land in one of our three weekly print editions. We're doing original and enterprising local journalism, in news and sports; we need your help to make it all sing!

This position will have a voice in newsroom planning and strategy in the afternoon, oversee print workflow at night, manage and edit contributed content on non-print days, and be our digital captain every day. If you want to write and report, we'll find regular opportunities. We'll fit this job around your strengths. Previous supervisory experience is preferred.

The largest city in the Magic Valley, with a population of about 56,000, Twin Falls is home to the region's top medical facility (St. Luke's Magic Valley) and one of the top junior colleges in the country (College of Southern Idaho). Retail shopping includes Costco, Target, Walmart, Fred Meyer and American Eagle, plus many others. Olive Garden, Texas Roadhouse, Applebee's and Red Robin are among the chain restaurants.

Outdoor opportunities abound - from hiking and cycling to skiing and watersports, even BASE jumping from the Perrine Bridge, which spans a canyon about 500 feet above the Snake River. It's the eighth highest bridge in the U.S. and the only legal destination nationally for year-round BASE jumping.

This is an exciting time to be part of change at the Times-News, part of the Lee Enterprises family of local newsrooms. The top editor joined late last year from USA TODAY to lead a vision built around serving community, connecting people, exploring issues, and celebrating successes. We're making progress with each month. Join us and make a difference.
