The Pilot is seeking enterprising, experienced news journalists who know the power and strength of community news. We publish daily online and in print Wednesdays and Sundays. Successful candidates will be skilled at covering local government, business and community news. You will have an opportunity to grow into new skills and be part of a young, committed newsroom that values comradery.
The Pilot is a 101-year-old newspaper that has been locally owned since day one and remains staunchly independent. We have been named the top community newspaper in America five times, including three consecutive years from 2015 to 2017. We also have been named the top community paper in North Carolina the last two years.
We are part of a larger publishing enterprise whose holdings include a digital services agency, The Country Bookshop and five monthly magazines, including the awarding winning Pinestraw Magazine and Business North Carolina. Inquiries with resume, experience, examples or links to work can be directed to editor John Nagy at email@example.com.
