The Daily World is part of the Grays Harbor Newspaper Group, which includes three weekly newspapers. The city editor will help work with the editors of those papers to coordinate shared coverage and content.

Aberdeen is located on Grays Harbor, a large saltwater port on the coast of Washington. We’re 30 minutes from the beach, an hour from the rainforest and Olympic National Park and two hours from Seattle.

Compensation includes medical, vision, life insurance, 401(k) and paid vacation.
