The Norman Transcript
The Norman Transcript is looking to add to its award-winning editorial department by hiring a weekly editor.
The weekly editor position is a hybrid reporter/paginator role that would require regular shifts on the copy desk, as well as news and sports reporting on a consistent basis.
The ideal candidate would have extensive InDesign experience and be comfortable working under deadlines. The candidate also needs to have experience writing news, features and sports stories. NewsEdit or NewsEdit Pro and photography experience is a plus, but not required.
The role will require someone who is able to work at a fast pace and balance a variety of responsibilities, while communicating regularly with the editor, copy desk chief and other members of the newsroom. Night and weekend shifts are required.
The Transcript has been published since 1889 and is located in Norman, Oklahoma, one of the largest cities in the state and home to the University of Oklahoma. Norman also features vibrant Campus Corner, downtown, and University North Park shopping districts, an active arts and music scene, and more than 50 parks.
