Posted 1 week ago

Come fill a premier beat at the Missoulian, an award-winning daily/Sunday newspaper in Missoula, Montana, home to the state’s flagship University of Montana. Our ideal candidate will turn a sharp eye on UM, the state Commissioner’s Office and Board of Regents, and local public and private schools and the challenges – financial and curriculum – facing education institutions today, especially in the time of COVID-19.

The candidate possesses the ability to juggle short- and long-term deadlines, is eager to pitch and execute investigative and explanatory projects, works collaboratively with editors and photographers, and has a strong sense of journalistic ethics and social media savvy.

The Missoulian is located on the banks of the Clark Fork River in a vibrant university community that combines an outstanding arts and music scene with epic outdoor opportunities. The Missoulian offers full benefits: medical, dental, vision, 401 (k), life insurance options, as well as a generous paid-time off policy.

The Missoulian is a division of Lee Enterprises, a leading provider of local news, information and advertising in primarily midsize markets, with 75 daily newspapers in 26 states, along with rapidly growing digital products and more than 350 weekly and specialty publications.
