We’re looking for an energetic and aggressive journalist who combines strong news judgment and quick decision-making skills with the kind of teaching/coaching approach to editing that turns promising reporters into great ones.


Essential Functions 

You’ll work with reporters and editors on the breaking news team and across the newsroom — as well as visual journalists and our audience engagement team —to handle the biggest breaking news stories of the day. We'll also look to you to launch deeper enterprise off the news, and guide the team toward interesting stories that aren't staring us in the face. Convince us you are a phenom at making things happen -- and someone who is always looking for answers, rather than explaining why things can’t be done.
