Description:

The Archdiocese of Detroit is undergoing a missionary transformation to unleash the Gospel in southeast Michigan. The News Editor will work closely with the Editor-in-Chief of Detroit Catholic in producing compelling, timely and relevant content for a diverse audience and evolving communications platforms including web, email, audio/video, print periodicals and social media channels.

The News Editor will be responsible not only for editing print work, but will also be responsible to produce two to three articles per week, along with developing and preparing content daily for publication on DetroitCatholic.com and Detroit Catholic social media channels. This may include copy editing functions, organizing photos, stories and social media graphics, working with freelance reporters and photographers, managing news wires and fielding calls from outside sources and readers. This professional should be self-motivated and inquisitive, with an ability to tell the same story differently for web, print, audio/video and social media platforms. An ability to proactively develop, refine and pitch compelling story ideas of interest to local Catholics is also key.

This role requires travel throughout the six-county archdiocese to conduct interviews, attend special Masses, school activities and other Catholic events of interest. An ability to work evenings and weekends is required based on the stories being covered. The News Editor/Staff Writer should demonstrate a working knowledge of and respect for the Catholic Church’s moral and theological precepts, beliefs, structures and practices.
