Whitefish Pilot

The Whitefish Pilot in Whitefish, Montana is seeking an enthusiastic reporter to join its award-winning newsroom. Experience is preferred, but emerging journalists with strong news clips will be considered. This full-time position offers a competitive wage, generous benefits and a 401K retirement plan.

We are looking for an individual with a good grasp of community journalism who can take the lead on news coverage. This reporter will be expected to cover a wide variety of beats, including Whitefish’s active city government, county government, natural resources, breaking news, community events and profiles. One day you might be covering area wildfires, the next a contentious city council meeting or a new local business.
