Status: Full Time; Exempt
End Date: Open Until Filled
Capital Public Radio's newsroom continues to expand, and as part of that growth we are now hiring for a new, full-time position: a News Editor to join our award-winning team.
The News Editor will play a significant role in shaping daily news coverage, in addition to developing feature stories and helping with special projects.
We're looking for an experienced journalist who can:
assign, oversee and edit daily news coverage and feature stories for broadcast, digital and other platforms
help with special projects
develop and coach reporters so that they serve our audience at a high-level
put on their reporter hat and deliver daily news stories, features and other content
appear on talk programs such as Insight With Beth Ruyak
The News Editor should have several years of editorial experience but not necessarily as an editor. If you are an experienced reporter with exceptional news judgment and a positive, inclusive attitude, this may be an opportunity for a new role.
Instincts for what distinguish a public radio story are essential. A passion for NPR and public-service journalism is a must.
The ideal candidate will have a background working in radio and with audio-editing software. But this is not a requirement: We welcome non-audio journalists.
We're focused on building a diverse and inclusive team; if you're excited about this position but may not meet all of the qualifications, we encourage you to submit an application.
Salary And Benefits
The salary range for this position is $70,000 to $75,000. We offer:
Medical, dental, vision, chiropractic and acupuncture insurance
Long-term disability and group life insurance
Retirement plan with employer matching
Flexible spending plan for health and dependent care
Location/Region: Berkeley, CA
