Description:

   

The Center Square is seeking a highly motivated regional editor to lead our coverage of state governments in the Midwest. We're looking for someone who has both editing and government reporting experience, and a strong interest and understanding of politics and public policy.

The media industry in the U.S. is shrinking, leaving fewer options for readers to digest the decisions made by their state and local government officials. The Center Square, the state-focused reporting division of the non-partisan, non-profit Franklin News Foundation, seeks to fill this journalistic void in Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota and Iowa with hands-on reporting of state news from the taxpayers’ perspective.

This key role will be joining other state news operations as we expand our impact in the states.
