Are you the best writer you know? Do you have news judgment that can help guide a story with clever copy that makes someone think? Well, the perfect job is waiting for you. KDAF-TV is looking for a Managing Editor for NewsFix, an anchorless format expanding to Dallas and currently on in Houston. NewsFix has a unique tone and POV. The Managing Editor will help drive the engine that gets the show on every day. You’ll work with the assignment desk and oversee story selection. Your outstanding editorial judgment will help producers, editors and content creators develop news of the day. The “M-E” will also edit/approve content, so you have to be part “diplomat” and “muse” when it comes to the process. Sound like you? We’ll, let us know who you are if:

You have a strong journalistic background BA/BS, with at least 7+ years’ experience in a working news room. Previous News experience in Dallas is a plus.
Excellent verbal/written communication skills, strong organizational abilities and a collaborative work ethic.

Solid leadership and effective management skills and you have creative ideas that you’re ready to roll with.
