The Athens Daily Review seeks an editor to deliver top-notch local coverage in print, online, and on mobile and social media platforms.

We need an editor with a take-charge attitude who will lead our small but ambitious newsroom in covering the news in new and exciting ways. We need someone with a clear vision to lead us into the digital age.

Our editor must have a thorough knowledge of news writing and editing for print and the web. Candidates must have excellent leadership skills and the willingness to become part of an active community. A community newspaper background is essential.  Knowledge of news design and QuarkXPress are also important.

The Daily Review is an award-winning, five-day newspaper. In addition, we publish a quarterly community magazine as well as a 24/7 news web site with a growing audience.

Located in the rolling green hills of East Texas, Athens has the charm of a small southern town. An hour’s drive from Dallas and a half-hour from Tyler, the area offers a great quality of life with attractions such as the Henderson County Performing Arts Center, East Texas Arboretum, and the Texas Freshwater Fisheries Center, as well as many other recreational activities. Athens is also home to a thriving community college with more than 6,500 students attending classes on four campuses.

Interested candidates should send a resume and work samples to Lange Svehlak, Publisher, 201 S. Prairieville, Athens, Texas, 75751; or email
