Grants Pass Daily Courier

City Hall Reporter

The Grants Pass Daily Courier, a family owned newspaper in beautiful Southern Oregon, is hiring a full-time reporter to cover Grants Pass city government and write occasional general assignment stories. The Daily Courier is not your typical small-town newspaper being hollowed out by a corporate owner. The company has been owned by the same Grants Pass family since the William McKinley administration (125 years and counting), no one was furloughed during the pandemic and no one’s pay was reduced. No other media source — print, online or broadcast — comes close to covering our local market at the level we do, and our readers respond with loyalty to our newspaper. The Courier is always part of the conversation in Grants Pass, a bulwark against agendas and bad attitudes, and we aim to keep it that way. Our reporters focus on what our readers need, so you won’t be sidetracked from your beat with podcasts, videos, newsletters or “audience.” Our circulation is 10,000, we publish five days a week, and we punch way above our weight. For two straight years, the Daily Courier won more Oregon Newspaper Publishers Association journalism awards than any other daily in the state. Daily Courier alumni have gone on to work at The New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, the Chicago Tribune, the San Antonio Express-News and CNN. We are better positioned than most of our peers. Our company is debt-free and we outsource nothing to other states or countries. We don’t use faraway design centers, no editing hubs, no remote printing sites. Humans pick up the phone here when a customer service call comes in. You’ll bump into our press operators in the break room. It’s all done in-house. It’s all old-school.
