Deputy Local News Editor

The Keene Sentinel, recently honored as the 2022 New England Newspaper of the Year in its circulation category by the New England Newspaper & Press Association, is looking for a deputy local news editor to work in a lively news environment.

The Sentinel is an independent, family-owned community news organization in southwestern New Hampshire.

Drawing from its rich local legacy as one of the oldest newspapers in the United States – founded in 1799 – The Sentinel practices innovative, forward-looking approaches that have generated significant community support. Through work with organizations such as Trusting News and the Poynter Institute, this includes cross-departmental initiatives to increase media literacy and credibility; transform our criminal justice coverage to hold law-enforcement agencies accountable; and directly and deeply engage with those we serve.

Working an afternoon/night shift Monday through Friday, the deputy local news editor will work directly with the executive editor-local news and our staff of six reporters to plan and guide coverage, and to edit articles for everything from AP Style to balance and context. This editor will also play an integral role in mentoring staff, making ethical decisions, and helping shape The Sentinel’s news direction.

This provides an excellent opportunity to grow professionally in a digital-focused newsroom and to do powerful, collaborative journalism with measurable impact. The Sentinel publishes throughout the week on its digital platforms, as well as in its six-day print newspaper. Though this editor would need to live in or relocate to southern New Hampshire (or nearby Vermont), staff are afforded flexibility in their environment via a blend of in-person and remote work.

The Sentinel is an equal-opportunity employer and offers a comprehensive benefits package and an excellent working environment. We believe attracting and retaining diverse staff is crucial to serving our community and fulfilling our mission.
