“Marketplace” seeks digital editor in Los Angeles
From newsletters, to podcasts, to online originals, Marketplace is growing fast. The Digital Editor is crucial to this growth. As Marketplace increases the volume and pace of online publishing, this position will help to ensure top editorial standards and cultivate the distinctive “Marketplace voice” across the program’s new site.
The Digital Editor will help shape Marketplace’s newsletter products as the program builds out its daily and weekly offerings. That includes research, story selection, and writing short news briefs in the Marketplace style.
The Digital Editor’s daily duties include site-wide copy editing: maintaining quality, accuracy, consistency, and flair throughout all text and graphics published on Marketplace.org, associated social media channels, and new digital products. Based in the Los Angeles Marketplace newsroom, the Digital Editor will be the final publisher on Marketplace digital scripts, responsible for the rewrites and copy edits of online scripts, headlines, and social media posts.
As needed, this editor will support the growth of additional digital products and data journalism with original research and writing.
This posting has an application deadline of June 21, 2015, at 10pm PST.
