Job Requirements We are seeking an experienced editor to help lead the launch of a national news website for conservative audiences that is independent (nonpartisan), anti-propaganda and rooted in the South away from the right and left coasts.

This editor will have an established personal brand and be nationally recognized as a voice for heartland conservatives. He or she will be the face of the publication on TV/radio talk shows and in the public arena. This editor will set the voice and tone of the publication and drive national public conversation. This editor will mentor a small team of editors working on the 24/7 news site and offer fans/readers instant insights with humor, intelligence and transparency. The editor must establish a strong ideological narrative and lead the editorial team to find stories that mirror or magnify it. This editor embodies the soul of the publication and will be responsible for setting and meeting overall product goals and launch milestones throughout 2013 and beyond.

-- Experience as a reliable conservative commentator on television, radio and/or digital with the demonstrated ability to attract and engage a broad audience using social and broadcast media and with both long- and short-form writing.
-- We prefer someone who has an established personal brand and reputation as a common-sense, independent conservative voice across all media.
-- Demonstrated news judgment with the ability to lead, rather than follow, the day’s headlines. Knack for seeing tomorrow’s big story today and experience creating or identifying content with viral appeal.
-- Keen sense of standard media biases and tropes -- and a passion for dissecting and dismantling partisan talking points.
-- An independent spirit that thrives in a start-up environment, can make decisions quickly and can handle several tasks at once.
-- Relocation to Atlanta is preferred, but working remotely is a possibility for the right candidate.
