The owners of an established, small-market daily newspaper in a beautiful New England town are searching for a managing editor to lead our newsroom. This is a confidential search, so we can't reveal the exact location until you enter the interviewing process. You'll be a key part of the team and play a core role in the evolution of this very community-minded publication. We are looking for someone who can lead both in the newsroom and in the community.


As managing editor, you’ll be responsible for local news, breaking news, features, sports and photos – both print and digital. You’ll lead a small staff of writers and photographers, and be very involved in the day to day operations. We are seeking someone with a demonstrated passion for local, community journalism, and fluency with digital and social media. The right candidate will have strong writing and editing skills, familiarity with pagination and excellent news judgement. The right candidate will also be a leader with a proven track record.  To a great extent, you’ll be the face of the newspaper, so positive community involvement is necessary. In a nutshell, your job will be driving readership through engaging, interesting and relevant content.


Our company values free speech, the public's right to know, and service to the community. We are swiftly adapting to new technology, but believe that the core principles of journalism that got us here are what will sustain us for the future. We offer competitive compensation commensurate with the size of the newspaper, and a good benefits package with health and dental insurance, 401k with matching, and more. If you'd like to learn more, please submit your resume on for review.


If your experience and background match the requirements of the position, we'll be in touch shortly.
