NPR Re-Orgs, Opens Digital Managing Editor Position

NPRVia WebNewser: National Public Radio SVP of news Ellen Weiss has announced leadership changes at the company and a position opening in digital media as a result.

The good news: “These changes all come from redefining existing jobs—and coincide with the departures of Jonathan Kern and Richard L. Harris and Cheryl Hampton’s move to HR to head up NPR News’ recruitment efforts,” reads a memo sent by Weiss.

In short, editorial director Dick Meyer will now supervise newsgathering across all platforms and will report directly to Weiss. That means NPR is now looking for a Managing Editor for Digital News.
