The Intelligencer and Wheeling News-Register, award-winning daily newspapers located in Wheeling, W.Va., are seeking a city editor to help guide the newsroom and drive our community conversation.

Our city editor is responsible for editing copy each evening, developing story assignments and helping to keep our community engaged and informed. Hands-on development of young reporters and their work is a must, as we need you to find the unanswered questions in stories before they hit the street or go online, and help reporters provide meaningful context in their reporting.

Good storytelling skills also are required, particularly visual storytelling for our online audience. We are seeking to do more video production, podcasting and other digital forms of storytelling, so experience in this arena – or a willingness to learn – will be a plus.

This position requires solid organizational skills, and an understanding of how to find and focus on what’s important in a story. You will work directly with our evening news editor to help plan each morning’s paper, so an understanding of design and photo reproduction is a benefit.

We also are part of a statewide network of newspapers and journalists covering West Virginia, so coordinating special projects and unique news stories with five other dailies helps to keep things interesting and also provides the resources for enhanced coverage across the state.

The ideal candidate will have some prior newsroom management experience. A bachelor’s degree in journalism is preferred.
