Desired Skills / Experience:
At least 5 years experience as an editor in a major newspaper or online news site (or wire) with daily or faster deadlines
Experience working in a fast-paced editorial environment where quick decision making is required and adherence to extremely tight deadlines is the norm
Serious newsgathering chops: ability to find a way to advance stories
A zest for stories big and small: you are equally comfortable with the complex as the heart-warming
Strong copy skills: can flip a story right side up, write a choppy one through and sharpen ledes and transitions
Thorough and detail orientated: you identify missing information and faulty logic, ask hard questions of reporters
Great communications skills, both written and oral
Can work nights and weekends
