The person will report to the director of advertising. We’re seeking someone that will work an established account list and move into assisting the director with growing revenue in special sections, special publications and our related web products.

Someone working in a weekly ad manager position or someone with some management experience at a larger newspaper could do well in this position.

We have a six-day-a-week daily newspaper, an every-other-week niche island-focused product, a quarterly dining product, a magazine, numerous themed special sections and a strong online presence.

The Brunswick News is a fourth-generation family-owned newspaper, so this position doesn’t have layers of corporate interference. The owner/publisher is actively involved in daily operations.

The Brunswick News earned the General Excellence Award from Georgia Press Association. We are the best because we are focused on high quality journalism, advertising, production and distribution. We are looking for someone that can both learn from our successes and take us to new levels. We believe there are plenty of opportunities in our secluded part of Coastal Georgia.

To apply, send résumé to bcranford@thebrunswicknews.com. If you have questions, reach out to Bill Cranford at 912-267-5983.
