Managing Producer


PA Media Group, publisher of PennLive.com and The Patriot-News, is seeking a managing producer to help oversee our Breaking and Trending news team. 


We are looking for a self-starting idea generator who leads by example, since this is a writer/editor position. We are looking for someone who can calmly manage intense breaking news as well as plan and execute enterprise stories. This person will mine data -- Census, state agencies, social platforms -- to give readers a sense of what is trending across Pennsylvania.


This is a management position. You will report to the Deputy Director of Content/Digital and help manage a team of reporters. Your schedule would be based on news coverage needs, so nights and weekends will be a part of this job.


A proven track record of high-quality editing or reporting is required. A knowledge of video and social skills is also required. You must be familiar with spotting trends through formats such as Crowdtangle and Google Trends, and you should know your way around Google Analytics.



·         BA in Journalism, Communications, or related field

·         Minimum of three years' experience in Journalism, reporting and/or editing

·         Experience with social media, including Facebook Live.

·         Experience shooting video and with editing software.

·         Solid understanding of news writing, journalistic standards and story structure

·         Ability to communicate clearly and professionally at all times with colleagues at locations around the state

·         Ability to accurately handle multiple simultaneous activities on tight deadlines

PennLive is among the largest news websites in the state with nearly 5 million unique visitors a month. But its more than just numbers. You would be joining a Pulitzer Prize winning newsroom that is positioned for the future. Our focus is on growing audience and developing a real-time approach to reporting news, sports and entertainment content.
