Managing Editor

The Wenatchee World is seeking a Managing Editor to lead a dynamic local newsroom with a rich journalism history in beautiful Wenatchee, Washington.

We’re looking for a talented editor and coach to bring their solid news judgment and editing expertise to develop journalists’ skills as we tell our community’s stories through several digital and print channels. This is an active, hands-on editor and manager position overseeing a 14-person newsroom.

The Wenatchee World has a daily newspaper, two weekly and two monthly publications serving a four-county region in central Washington State. We produce several email newsletters every week, maintain all the usual social media channels and a few other innovative digital platforms. Our primary markets are the growing cities of Wenatchee and East Wenatchee.

This is an area rich with opportunities to produce impactful journalism. We have a major agriculture industry, as well as big hydroelectric dams that produce cheap electricity, attracting massive data centers and cryptocurrency-mining operations.

Our community is home to the region’s healthcare center, so we’ve produced thousands of stories over the past three years helping people understand the pandemic.

In the summers we shift into coverage of wildfire season, helping keep our communities safe and informed.

Equally importantly, we tell the smaller stories of how our neighbors live and work here — from high school football to housing challenges and everything in between.

We’re looking for someone to guide this coverage and steward our newsroom, which has been a driving force of the Wenatchee Valley for more than a century.

 Duties:

  • Manage a daily newsroom operation publishing to multiple web platforms and print publications
  • Develop staff reporters and editors through training and coaching
  • Assign and supervise news coverage working with editors and reporters
  • Working with other editors, manage story workflow from coverage assignments to editing to publishing on print and digital pages
  • Supervise page design, website presentation, newsletters and social media
  • Measure and share digital audience engagement with staff and leadership
  • Collaborate across teams and departments
  • Represent The Wenatchee World as an ambassador in the community
  • Innovate and solve newsroom challenges creatively

Qualifications:

  • Excellent news judgment and editing skills
  • Very comfortable working in both digital and printed media
  • At least five years experience managing a news team or newsroom
  • Bachelor’s degree or higher in journalism preferred
  • Demonstrated ability to effectively communicate across channels, in-person and remotely, to achieve results

About us

Wenatchee is a beautiful small city at the foot of the Cascade Mountains in the center of Washington State. The Columbia River flows through the region. Known as the Apple Capital of the World, Wenatchee is near many outdoor recreation opportunities.

This is a full-time position with a package of pay and benefits, including medical, vision, dental, and a 401(k).

Please email your resume with subject line “Managing Editor” to Publisher Sean Flaherty at flaherty@wenatcheeworld.com. Include a letter of interest and links to up to five examples of work you had a hand in elevating.

The Wenatchee World / Washington Media LLC is a division of Wick Communications. We are an equal opportunity employer.
