Full Job Description

First, a little about us. EastIdahoNews.com is the #1 news website in all of Idaho. Since we launched in 2015, we’ve had over 450 million pageviews by more than 50 million users around the world.

We are locally owned, based in Idaho Falls and have former TV, newspaper and radio journalists working to bring the best news coverage to our audience every day. We have over 135,000 followers on Facebook and more than 243,000 YouTube subscribers.
We don’t want to brag, but we’ve won dozens of awards – including a national Edward R. Murrow award. Our reporters’ work is featured on other websites and television programs all the time.

Now here’s what we want from you. We need an innovative multimedia journalist with strong news judgment who has excellent writing, video and communication skills.
You will get to report from one of the most beautiful places in the country. We’re just a short drive from Yellowstone National Park, the Grand Tetons, Jackson Hole, ski resorts, rivers, streams and over 10,000 acres of sand dunes.

We move fast at East Idaho News so you’ll need to be able to juggle multiple assignments while working independently. You’ll mainly focus on crime and court reporting but will cover other things too.

It helps if you know WordPress, Adobe Suite programs and video editing software but if you don’t, they’re easy to learn. And you’ve got to be active on social media. Hello, it’s 2022.
Our ideal candidate will have at least two years of newsroom experience, but don’t let that hold you back if you think you have what it takes.

Some cool things about the job: you’ll generally work daytime hours Monday through Friday. Occasionally you’ll be asked to cover something at night or on the weekends, but that’s rare.

You’ll also get every major holiday off, have a free family gym membership, excellent health insurance, generous PTO, 401(k) match, a cell phone stipend and every Christmas, we help a Secret Santa give away $1 million.
