Description:

The Las Vegas Sun is looking for an experienced Copy Editor to fill an opening in our newsroom.  Our successful candidate will work on both print and online products, managing the Sun’s website during the evening, and assisting in copy-editing and in the production of the Las Vegas Sun, a Pulitzer Prize-winning daily newspaper.

Strong copy-editing and writing skills along with proficiency as a page designer are a must. We’re looking for someone who catches typos before using spell check, looks up names, fact-checks as a matter of routine and raises questions before stories get in print are published. 

Qualified candidates also will be self-starters with sound news judgment, solid knowledge of grammar rules and AP style, experience with InDesign and Photoshop, and the ability to work in a fast-paced, deadline-oriented environment.

A typical shift includes preparing breaking news content for publication, updating the homepage and proofing pages. The position on some days will also require assisting with the design and output of newspaper, writing briefs for the website and coordinating with reporters.

The Sun is a product of Greenspun Media Group, a diversified media company whose titles also include award-winning Las Vegas Weekly, Las Vegas Magazine and a family of leading websites. We’re building a media company for the next 50 years, and we take pride in the quality and progressive nature of our work.

To apply for this opportunity, send a resume and samples to jobs@gmgvegas .com with "Copy Editor" in the subject line. Greenspun Media Group is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
