The Chicago Reporter is looking for a talented and visionary editor-in-chief.

This is an exciting and unique opportunity.  This nationally recognized news outlet is growing, dynamic, and poised to go to the next level. 

In these times, the Reporter’s groundbreaking reporting on race, poverty and economic inequity is more vital than ever.  We are looking for a new leader with proven, hands-on editing skills to lead the newsroom.  The job is primarily editorial.  The new editor will have resources to hire a deputy who will do the day-to-day fundraising.

The new editor will build on the Reporter’s legacy as a one-of-a-kind nonprofit media organization with a 45-year track record of combining data analysis and narrative storytelling to shed light on racial inequities in one of the most segregated cities in the nation.

The Search Committee seeks someone who can shape and direct editorial strategy and coverage, manage investigative projects, and serve as the public face of the organization.  We are looking for someone with at least 15 years of experience in digital and print journalism to continue our growth as an authority on issues of race and class and to advance partnerships with local and national news entities.

We offer a competitive salary and excellent benefits. The Chicago Reporter is an independent program of the faith-based Community Renewal Society. We are committed to diversity and strongly encourage applications from women, people of color, people with disabilities, and LGBTQ people. Applicants should send a cover letter and resume to Jessica Hollie, HR Administrator.
