The Williston Herald is looking for its next dynamic newsroom leader – a position unlike any other in the country.
The newspaper publishes six days a week in a booming area that has defied the economic downturn. In addition to leading six reporters in production of the daily newspaper, the Herald’s editor manages a monthly magazine and an affiliated weekly newspaper. The Herald’s newsroom also produces a living website that is updated frequently with news of the day.
The winning candidate must be a true wordsmith, capable of telling stories that demand reader attention. The next editor must be a proven leader and know that discipline, enthusiasm and attention to detail are contagious. He or she will have demonstrable photographic and Web skills, and a working knowledge of the latest social media platforms.
Williston is a remarkable community, sitting atop the largest oil reserve in the nation. The once sleepy agricultural area is now a fast-growing boomtown that attracts oil industry workers by the thousands. The opportunities provided by the Herald are exploding right along with the town. The editor’s position pays a competitive salary, including bonus, a comprehensive benefits package and housing considerations. The Williston Daily Herald is part of Wick Communications.
