WCVB Channel 5, Boston’s News and Community leader and the Hearst-owned ABC affiliate, is looking for a Managing Editor for its nightly, live, half-hour news magazine program, Chronicle. Recently marking 37 years on the air as one of the Boston market’s most celebrated programs, the award-winning Chronicle is the longest running, locally produced news magazine in the nation.

Chronicle’s founding mission was to cover in-depth a broad range of local stories not likely to be featured in the station’s newscasts --- a mixture of investigative, enterprise, and feature material that would also showcase the best videography, writing and editing on Boston television. Chronicle has evolved over the decades to embrace a rich and diverse menu of stories on the lifestyle and culture of New England.

The Managing Editor oversees Chronicle’s daily content creation as well as scheduling the program’s staff of more than 20 people including producers, on-air personnel, photo journalists, and editors. The Managing Editor is also responsible for managing all multi-media content development and production elements. The applicant must be a driven and organized leader who is also an excellent storyteller with a proven track-record for writing and producing compelling, long form programming. The ideal candidate should have a deep knowledge of all things New England including the region’s history, politics, influencers (both well-known and less well-known), topography, and culture. The applicant should be a motivational and collaborative leader with a vision for successful multi-media content creation while incorporating the program’s signature tone and style.
