Description:

Trib Total Media is seeking a dynamic, innovative, high-energy leader to direct digital and print coverage of high school, college and professional sports in our highly competitive Pittsburgh-area market.

The successful candidate will lead a 10-person staff and collaborate with editors from the company's two daily print editions, our digital desk (triblive.com) and successful High School Sports Network to deliver compelling content that moves us forward in overall  audience engagement.

This editor will be an experienced wordsmith, skilled communicator and effective coach who looks beyond game coverage to produce solid enterprise reporting, breaking news exclusives and other written and visual content that our readers won't find elsewhere.

While coverage of Pittsburgh's pro hockey, football and baseball teams drives our analytics, the individual should be prepared to maintain the Trib’s position as Western Pennsylvania’s preeminent prep sports source.

The ability to interpret audience and social media metrics to develop coverage and presentation strategies is essential. It will be crucial for this editor to maintain a collegial, collaborative relationship with editorial peers and staff elsewhere in our company to achieve our organization's overall growth goals.

Applicants should have a college degree in journalism or a related field and at least four years of experience guiding sports coverage for a daily news operation.

Trib Total Media is an equal opportunity employer and encourages all qualified candidates to apply.

Resumes, cover letters and work samples should be directed to Rick Monti at rmonti@tribweb.com
