Insider Louisville, which is becoming a nonprofit digital news organization, is looking for a crafty news editor who can run a growing newsroom.
Insider Louisville is a small but mighty team of old-school reporters on a mission to dig deeper, ask more questions, and seek experts to add analysis and context to the issues that our 150,000-plus monthly readers care about the most.
We are passionate about Louisville and all the things that make this a vibrant community: arts, bourbon, festivals, horse racing, LouCity championship soccer, great restaurants, Fortune 500 companies and a growing startup scene. It is a super affordable place to live. We love this town and want to see it thrive.
Expanding the staff
As part of our mission to quickly expand our editorial staff, we are looking for a newshound who has a voracious media diet and a strong familiarity with local, regional and national news.
“The ideal candidate possesses a bachelor’s degree in journalism or a related field, expertise with AP style, familiarity with WordPress, photography and video skills and experience at a daily newspaper or news service,” says Mickey Meece, managing editor. “This eagle-eyed person has three-plus years of copy and story editing experience and is a force for good when it comes to fast, accurate editing for style and content.”
“He or she is just as comfortable crafting a caption as reviewing a 2,000-word article or a six-minute video,” Meece says. “As a nonpartisan and pending nonprofit news organization, we value accuracy and transparency in everything we do.”
Insider Louisville offers competitive salary and benefits. We are an equal opportunity employer, giving our employees a chance to flourish in a team atmosphere that thrives on journalistic excellence.
Interested candidates should email a resume, cover letter, references and three to five examples of your best editing work to Managing Editor Mickey Meece: [email protected]
