Description:

Trib Total Media, producer of two daily award-winning newspapers and more than a dozen weekly and monthly publications in the Pittsburgh region, is seeking a full-time copy editor/page designer to join our copy desk. 

Our daily Tribune-Review newspapers have been honored three consecutive years as Best Overall Newspaper by the Pennsylvania Society of Professional Journalists, so we take our design seriously. 

Our copy desk team thrives in a fast-paced environment, is comfortable working independently and not intimidated by the pressure of tight daily deadlines. 

To be a member of our team, you must have experience building award-worthy newspaper pages in InDesign and hold a superior understanding of AP style in addition to grammar, punctuation and spelling. Experience with Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator is a plus. 

Copy desk responsibilities include editing copy and writing headlines, then taking that copy to build eye-catching, thought-provoking pages for news, features, opinion and sports in both broadsheet and tabloid publications. 

Work hours typically fall between 3 and 11 p.m. The Trib prints newspapers seven days a week, so working some weekend shifts will be required. Remote work is an option. 

The Tribune-Review is known for its exceptional local news and sports coverage in Western Pennsylvania. Its flagship website, TribLIVE.com, is the most-visited news website in the region.

We offer a comprehensive benefits package including medical, dental and vision, as well as 401k w/company match, life insurance, short-term disability, and paid time off.
