The Post and Courier, winner of the 2015 Pulitzer Prize for Public Service and a four-time Pulitzer finalist, is looking for its next newsroom leader. There aren’t many jobs left as good as this one. At The Post and Courier, we deeply value our relationship with our readers, and we believe in the old-school idea that investing in our journalism will lead to more readers and more revenue.

As the next managing editor of The Post and Courier, the No. 2 position in the newsroom, you’ll have big shoes to fill and big expectations to meet.
