The Bay Area News Group (Mercury News/East Bay Times) is seeking a senior local news editor to oversee our local coverage team. We are looking for an experienced manager with sharp news sensibilities and a penchant for coaching developing journalistic talent. Your turf spans the Bay Area, from the intellectual and economic ferment of San Jose/Silicon Valley to the south to challenged-but-redeveloping Oakland to the north to the wide-ranging diversity of Contra Costa County to the east. It’s a dynamic area that nevertheless struggles with a yawning income divide and cripplingly high housing prices. Politically progressive, culturally diverse, economically powerful, the Bay Area is an engine of this country’s unique attributes, and journalism here is like no place else.
