WSJ seeks senior editor for live journalism
The Wall Street Journal seeks a creative, entrepreneurial and driven senior editor to join our Live Journalism team. This New York-based editor will help oversee our growing global portfolio of live events and will work hand-in-hand with our editor of Live Journalism to explore and develop new franchises for the Journal.
This is a time of rapid growth for Journal events, and you will help shape our overall approach to live events–how we plan, program and cover them. You will work on the themes, agenda and storytelling for major events like the Future of Everything and the Global Food Forum and help confirm headline speakers for key events. You’ll also play a critical role in identifying opportunities for expanding existing events like CEO Council and Women In or launching brand-new ones.
Together with the editor of Live Journalism you will oversee coverage plans for our major events and how we communicate with attendees before, during and between gatherings. You’ll work across the newsroom to develop stories, video and interactives that amplify our onstage interviews and continue the conversation after the event.
This editor has a background working on the editorial side of high-level events and a track record of getting things done with panache. He or she will have a network that spans industries and continents, an eye for new thinkers and doers, deep knowledge of the current landscape of event and a sense for the issues people care about now and in the near future.
Other qualifications include a knack for juggling multiple events and components for those events, the ability to collaborate across a large organization, a deep knowledge of business, culture and finance, superior communication skills, and a sense of fun.
