The Times Union, an iconic property of Hearst, tells the story of New York's Capital Region. Located near Albany, the newspaper is widely respected for its focus on local news and watchdog reporting, particularly on state government and politics. It has won numerous state and national awards for its work in print and online, and has repeatedly been named New York's "Newspaper of Distinction" by the New York State Associated Press Association. The editorial department recently launched a daily podcast titled "The Eagle," which gives insights into the research, writing and editing that goes into every local story. The company also publishes several niche magazines, a series of weekly shoppers, and hosts events in the Hearst Media Center. In addition, the Times Union has created Women@Work, a magazine that has grown into a network of professionals who meet monthly for informative breakfasts and hold events at various locations throughout the region to share ideas and compare best practices. We believe in helping our employees tell their own stories through development, practice and boundless opportunity. In return we ensure they have a deep understanding of how their work contributes to the story of our region and of one of the most celebrated media brands in New&nnbsp;York.
Mission & Values
It is our mission to be a relentless truth-teller at the hub of the community's conversation, informing, educating, entertaining and inspiring our citizens.
The Times Union is committed to a culture of inclusiveness as well as approaching our mission with integrity, fairness, transparency and respect for all. We encourage employees to celebrate their differences while contributing together. We will not tolerate prejudice in our editorial products, our hiring process or the workplace.
Our largest city, Albany, is the center of state government and a melting pot of cultures. To the east is Troy, a factory town that is seeing a major resurgence and is home to Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. To the west lies Schenectady, where inventiveness is honored. This is where Thomas Edison started the company that became General Electric and George Westinghouse conceived rotary engines and air brakes. Finally, to the north is Saratoga County, home to the famed Saratoga Race Course, the bustling tourist town of Saratoga Springs and the Saratoga Performing Arts Center, where you can see ballet and musical performances from classical to metal.
Times Union Hope Fund
Times Union employees are deeply involved in the community, many of them taking part in the company-sponsored charity, the Times Union Hope Fund. A component fund of the Community Foundation of the Greater Capital Region, the Hope Fund provides funding for at-risk youth to attend after-school and summer programs. Since its inception in 2008, the Times Union Hope Fund has granted more than $1 million dollars to programs throughout the region.
