The Stranger, Seattle’s only newspaper™, is looking for an experienced and energetic editor to lead its news department. Managing a team of reporters, the news editor will be responsible for creating smart, engaging stories, setting the tone for news and political coverage in the fastest-growing large city in America™. The news editor should know how to connect with audiences in an online, fast-paced environment and have an already-established presence on social media.
You will be in charge of directing both the daily online stories, as well was editing the news features that run in the paper.
The ideal candidate should also have a firm understanding of how city government works, know their way around public records requests, and be unafraid of news with a point of view. Familiarity with Seattle city politics is a plus, as is prior reporting experience. Send a cover letter and a few writing samples to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Women, people of color, LGBTQI, and other underrepresented people in media are encouraged to apply. No phone calls, please!
