The Facts, a 14,000 circulation daily that has been named Texas APME Newspaper of the Year three years running needs an assistant managing editor to build on our great record of achievement. Our AME oversees the nightly production of the newspaper, is our lead designer and contributes editorials while providing a valuable voice in the direction of the newsroom and newspaper.
Strong knowledge of InDesign and PhotoShop are needed, as this person's design skills also will enhance our expanding number of publications, including a monthly lifestyle magazine and other glossy products, feature pages and special sections. The person also needs to be an adept headline writer and proofreader, and a copy editor who doesn't just fix grammar and punctuation, but also can make stories better.
The right candidate will be professional, with previous newspaper experience, and understand the importance of a "local first" community philosophy and of hitting deadline.
This is a salaried position, and night and weekend work will be required. We know we are asking a lot, and we have budgeted a salary to bring in the right person to meet our expectations.
