Outdoor life is wonderful here with boating, hiking, fishing, hunting and camping. We also boast a symphony, fine dining, art house cinema, Community Theater, a thriving arts community and the ambience of a historic river city. Things here are starting to get back to “normal.” We prefer management experience but this could be your first management job on your way to being a News Director or more.
