As part of the print hub planning team, this editor will track stories and space which shape the daily newspaper and assist in guiding designers and editors on enterprise work and projects. This editor will assist in upholding the print hub’s publication plan for enterprise and embargoed stories and keep track of scheduled and planned news events. The editor will also work with features and non-news sections to find opportunities to share their work in print. This editor will also monitor print deadlines and set digital deadlines to help create a predictable publication schedule and seamless print workflow.
Specific responsibilities will include:
Organizing a daily print section, such as International or National. This entails tracking the daily budget, working with department editors to assess space needs as well as deadlines and stories which may hold for later publication, and working with the print hub to identify daily space and color requirements. This position will also track stories from other newsroom departments which may fit into the section.
Identifying major visual opportunities for the print hub. This entails identifying dress pages and inside display pages as early as possible, as well as communicating daily and upcoming enterprise stories, as well as potential weekend content, to the print hub’s designers and editors.
Tracking enterprise and projects for the print hub, with an emphasis on content for an assigned section. This involves management of the print hub enterprise view of the newsroom Airtable, and sharing information about story plans, photo and graphic needs, length and deadline requirements, and staffing consequences for designers and editors.
Attending daily and weekly planning meetings in the print hub and newsroom departments, as well as the morning and afternoon newsroom news and A1 meetings — occasionally taking and sharing notes from these meetings with the print hub and newsroom.
This position requires a commitment to collaboration and flexibility as well as expert-level communication skills. As the design team relies heavily on this editor, experience in design is a plus. Shifts will generally be daytime and on a set schedule, but news events and staffing needs will occasionally require adjustments to days and times.
This position is represented by the News Guild of NY.
