The Assistant Editor will report to and work with the Managing Editor to oversee the news team, develop and assign stories, edit local and wire copy, promote online coverage and the Herald/Review’s social media presence.
We’re looking for someone who is smart and energetic with a positive attitude and desire to collaborate and mentor a team of talented and energetic news reporters.
