Editor-Twin Falls

The Times-News is seeking a top editor to lead, inspire and grow local journalism in an eight-county region of southern Idaho known as the Magic Valley.

If you want to plan and strategize content, edit, do your share of reporting, and engage readers across multiple digital platforms and a robust three-day-a-week print edition, let's talk. The editor also heads one of just two local editorial boards in Idaho, a role that includes leading a weekly meeting and shaping our voice on local and statewide issues.

We are a digital-first newsroom that prioritizes original and enterprising local reporting, as well as breaking news and a heavy dose of high school and college sports. We are invested in doing the journalism that doesn't get done around here if we don't do it.

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 a transformational moment at the Times-News, part of the Lee Enterprises family of local newsrooms. We grew digital readership and subscriptions for 10 months in 2023 while reorganizing our newsroom to better serve community. Join us and make a difference! A relocation package is available.
