My Horry News seeks a managing editor/government reporter eager to cover South Carolina’s fastest-growing county and perform daily editor duties. The ideal candidate must have at least five years of newsroom experience. Experience as a government reporter is a plus.
You would join a fun, progressive company focused on publishing and creating engaging content supporting our audience in print and digital. The managing editor should have a sense of urgency, possess strong communication skills and be a leader who can motivate our newsroom, work efficiently and collaborate across departments. This is an excellent opportunity for someone looking to make a difference in a place that appreciates high-quality journalism.
Must have at least five years of news experience in a leadership role.

Must have excellent editing skills with attention to detail.
Should have a strong understanding of the state's Freedom of Information Act.
Be able to work with the newsroom and adapt to assignment changes. We're a small team, and when major news happens (hurricanes, floods, protests), we take an all-hands-on-deck approach.
