Weekly Editor

City: Greenville, Texas
Newspaper: Herald-Banner Publications
Job Description: Herald-Banner Publications is looking for an editor for two weekly newspapers in Rockwall County, TX, one of the fastest-growing areas in the United States. You'll have responsibility for, and exercise substantial discretion determining, the content, layout, and appearance of the newspapers and their associated websites. Your primary duty will be to provide unique interpretation and analysis to the new and editorial content of the publications.
You'll oversee one full-time reporter, coordinate with freelance writers, and also do a lot of page design, writing and photography yourself.
Our ideal candidate will have:
1. Experience designing gorgeous pages, preferably in InDesign, with the clips to prove it.
2. A web-first mindset, preferably with some experience creating video and audio. We want to rock the web with daily coverage online and follow up in print.
3. Excellent planning and organizational skills.
4. Strong writing and photography clips.
It's a very fast-paced, demanding job, but it's also a rewarding job in a great place — fast-growing suburban Dallas — where the economy is strong and the competition is fierce.
Contact: If you're ready to help us take our websites and weekly papers to the next level, send your design, writing and photography clips to Caleb Slinkard, Herald-Banner Editor, editor@heraldbanner.com, 903.455.4220 ext. 324
