Business editor/channel manager

Are you looking for one of the most exciting journalism opportunities in the country? Can you walk into a meeting on Wall Street with confidence in reporting on the topic, and just as easily walk into a meeting in Smalltown America and mingle with the locals to get the story? And, do you embrace bold new journalism frontiers that most certainly include digital-first reporting and using a wide range of the latest in interactive reporting tools and programs?

You also, for this job, must have several years of proven experience in business reporting and editing.

Digital First Media is perhaps the country's boldest leader in exploring the future success of journalism by practicing it today. We have assembled an impressive team in our New York newsroom widely known as Thunderdome, and we are looking for a sharp, well-rounded and experienced business editor to become our business channel manager as we launch the channel online across our DFM network, which includes more than 70 daily newspaper sites and more than 800 multi-platform products reaching more than 61 million Americans.

Among those in our newspaper family are The Denver Post, The Detroit News, The San Jose Mercury News, The El Paso Times, The Salt Lake Tribune, The New Haven Register, St. Paul Pioneer Press, Oakland Tribune, Los Angeles Daily News and many more.

The business channel manager will be responsible for the business vertical with duties including keeping the channel fresh 24/7 with the best, latest and most complete content available using shared content from our sites, partner content from the several news organizations we use, and produced content that you will help report and produce yourself.

You'll be expected to produce business/consumer/finance pieces, or supervise production, using tools such as Spundge, ScribbleLive, Storify, social media and/or whatever new effective tool comes out today. We jump on new ways to tell a story in a digital format; a traditional print format; and by good, ole fashioned, hard-nosed reporting. We're also looking for someone who has strong and proven editing skills.

Last but certainly not least, you've got to be a fun, flexible, creative and enjoyable team player. We have strong team chemistry in our newsroom, and it's important to us to hire the right kind of team player. You also must work in our office on the 25th and top floor of 5 Hanover Square in New York, near Wall Street in the financial district.

We're wanting to move fast now that we're closer to launching our business channel. If interested, email your cover letter, resume, references, etc., with BUSINESS CHANNEL MANAGER in the subject line, to:

Troy Turner, news channels editor,
