General Reporter

Town & Country This Week
Location: Westlock, Alberta


Town & Country This Week, which covers the regions previously served by the Westlock News, Barrhead Leader and Athabasca Advocate, is looking for a general reporter to round out its newsroom.

Great staff are rewarded and coveted, so if you excel, advancement within the chain is possible. Most of the reporters who have passed through the Westlock office over the last two decades have gone on to daily newspapers, magazines, communications position within government, or have advanced within the chain.

The Westlock area has a total population of roughly 12,000 (5,000 in town, and 7,000 in the county) and is ideally located just 45 minutes north of Edmonton. Town & Country This Week is part of the Great West Media chain; a group that includes newspapers such as the St. Albert Gazette, Rocky Mountain Outlook and Okotoks Western Wheel.  


You’ll need to have a journalism degree, or diploma, a vehicle and a lot of energy. Previous experience is welcomed although new grads will be considered.

Salary will be based initially on experience and, quite frankly, how good one’s work is throughout the three-month probation period. That said, we are more than competitive salary-wise versus other weekly newspaper chains throughout Alberta and offer a good medical and benefits package.

Please no out-of-country applicants.
