Position Description: The Wall Street Journal Sunday is looking for a news editor. WSJ Sunday appears in more than 70 metropolitan newspapers around the country and reaches 7 million homes a week.

The news editor works closely with the editor in all facets of producing the section and dealing with partner newspapers.
