The M.E. reports directly to the publisher and is the newsroom’s leader, responsible for overseeing and driving an effective flow of content from conception to execution across all platforms. Our ideal candidate is a community-minded professional and hands-on manager who can wear a lot of different hats – copy editor, editorial writer, writing coach, and reporter – all while inspiring and directing our team of talented journalists.
