The successful candidate must have a college degree in journalism and at least two years of reporting experience, preferably in city or county government coverage. Photography experience helpful. The position is a full-time (40 hours a week) role that demands a variety of journalism skills, from reporting on government affairs to researching and composing features on local issues and people.

The Idaho Mountain Express is situated in Ketchum, one mile from world-class Sun Valley Resort, in the heart of Idaho’s Rocky Mountains.
