Join the Team


Highland Park Planet welcomes you – the readers, residents and businesses of Highland Park – to be part of this exciting and important initiative. We are soliciting help in all departments, i.e., writing, reporting, editing, ad sales, as well as members of a Community Advisory Board, and purchasers of our Highland Park Planet T-shirts and/or donations in any amount to help sustain this important community resource.

At this time we have particular need for reporters to cover local sports and school issues. We are also looking for assistance in sales, business and new product development, and account management. To inquire about a position on our editorial or business staff, please email:

We would like to extend our great appreciation to our Founding Advertisers. Building a new institution for community journalism takes a village. We will forever be grateful to the visionary local businesses and people that saw the need for, and the promise of, Highland Park Planet, and took out paid advertising, even before our first issue.
