Stop Presses: Entry-level newspaper reporting job

reporter-photographer wanted in New River Valley Over lunch I picked up a copy of the Radford News Journal, published by Main Street Newspapers, and noticed this ad in the back.

OurValley.org” is the newspaper group’s website, and the contact in the ad is Ed McCoy, the group’s executive editor, who is also editor of the Fincastle Herald.

Along with the News Journal, the chain includes The News Messenger, which serves the New River Valley towns of Christiansburg and Blacksburg in Montgomery County.

(This was also an experiment with taking a quick closeup picture with my Droid phone and posting it to WordPress with a Droid app. It worked, although I slipped back later and filtered and resized the image a little. Posting a snapshot of a printed ad gives “online newspaper” a whole new meaning. Ironically, the ourvalley.org website — recently revived  using WordPress — doesn’t have its online classified ad system working yet.)

mild-mannered reporter who fell deeper into computers and the Web during three trips through graduate school in the 1980s and 1990s, then began teaching journalism, media studies and Web production, most recently as a faculty member at Radford University.
