Why Work for Apple Valley News Now?
Because we care about you and your life outside of work just as much as we value the work you do in the newsroom and in the community each day.

We are a family owned, people first business and our community is at the core of what we do and who we represent.

The News Photojournalist/Editor will also edit stories for newscasts so your keen attention to detail, ability to confidently make decisions under pressure, and sound news judgment, are essential to this vital role. Your voice will matter in making daily decisions about news coverage and creative ways to tell stories.
