Reporter opening for News-Herald in Lake Havasu City, AZ, due to UWO grad promotion

The News-Herald is Arizona’s fifth largest daily newspaper, serving 11,000 paid subscribers in Mohave County’s largest city. We also operate one of Northwest Arizona’s largest news websites, HavasuNews.com, and produce a quarterly lifestyle magazine and a 4,000-circulation weekly newspaper in the nearby community of Parker.

We’re a small paper with a big heart, eager to tackle big stories and committed to being the strongest source of local news for our community. Some of those stories have included a deeper look into a rise in officer-involved shootings, environmental topics such as how drought and invasive species are changing the Colorado River, and persistent attention on an education system that doesn’t get the support it needs.

We’ve been featured twice in recent editions of Editor & Publisher, we were named the 2016 Associated Press member of the year for Arizona in 2016, and our quarterly lifestyle magazine received the Arizona Newspaper Association’s top magazine award last year. We hope you’re eager to dig in, because there are plenty of stories waiting to be told.
