Colorado Public Radio is seeking a leader for its digital news team. It’s a great job for someone eager to build a strong public media digital news service. You’ll lead a team of three to produce highly engaging work for the CPR News website, mobile and social media. You’ll oversee creation of digital versions of our radio reporting, digital native projects, a news blog and curation of news and crowd-sourced materials. You’ll lead the charge for best practices and creative use of the medium with a good visual sensibility - a visual version of public radio. You’ll track results and maximize and engage the audience for all the right reasons, not just clicks. We’re looking for someone who can see where the site needs to go and knows how to lead a team to get it there quickly; who can be hands on in all facets of digital production, and who can step back and assess what’s working and what needs to be improved.
Colorado is a state that is exploring some big ideas - legalized pot, fossil fuels versus renewables, urban vs. rural values, immigration, development vs. natural resources, the role of government in a purple state. It’s also teeming with a diverse arts and culture scene. All this in a newly expanded newsroom with mountain views, set in an awe-inspiring place to live.
Please submit a cover letter, resume and at least three work samples demonstrating your best work in the digital space, including at least one example of how you planned a story for web and social media to firstname.lastname@example.org with Digital Editor in the subject line.
