Journo-jobs (Dec. 17)

December 17, 2010

Murderous roundup to come later today, in the meantime today’s journalism jobs.

You could be a publisher at the Fernie Free Press, but oh, wait, you probably don’t have a sales background. And that’s who Black Press wants to head their papers. So move along nicely now. There are no jobs in B.C. this week, so if you’re sick of your editor, you’ll have to look east.


The Red Deer Advocate needs a reporter. There was a part-time gig listed last week, but the Advocate, a Black Press daily paper, also has a permanent full-time gig opening up. From Gaulin: “Must have journalism training, a sharp sense of news, good reporting and writing skills, and photography experience. Applicants must have a vehicle and a valid driver’s licence.” Closes Jan. 3.

The Stettler Independent needs a community newspaper reporter. Stettler is 45 minutes east of Red Deer. The newsroom publishes four different weekly papers. You need photography skills and a pulse.

The Prince Albert Daily Herald needs a reporter/photographer. It always needs a reporter/photographer. Maybe that’s why Prince Albert is listed as being in Alberta on both Gaulin and Media Job Search. Is this a bold move to attract reporters who shy away from listings that say Saskatchewan? If so, I’ll indulge it, by pointing you to the listing here.

Actually in Alberta, the Grand Prairie Daily Herald-Tribune not only needs a shorter name, but they also need a multimedia editor/photographer. The ad on Media Job Search boasts that the newspaper is “the largest community broadsheet Sun Media newspaper in Western Canada.” You don’t need experience but you do need mad skills, as the kids say, and the ability to shoot and edit video.  Closes Dec. 31.

    Rod Link up at the Terrace Standard is another editorial guy who is now publisher. But I’m not sure if he became publisher before or after Black Press took over that paper. Plus he’s the founding editor so he’s got some clout.

    Your comment about who Black Press wants to head their papers reminded me of a guy who broke through that wall between editorial and management. His name was Todd Hamilton and he won many, many awards in the BCYNAs for his work at Smithers Interior News. It was a big deal when he got that job.

    He’s not there anymore and I wonder what’s become of him. A search online turns up nothing.
