EXECUTIVE EDITOR WANTED
Barrett Media has a rare FT salaried opportunity for an Executive Editor. The candidate chosen for this role will be involved in all aspects of brand strategy, staff management, content creation, and growth analysis for both Barrett Sports Media and Barrett News Media, and report directly to BM president Jason Barrett.
We are looking for someone who is creative, passionate, organized, a team builder, and has experience working inside of the broadcasting industry. Daily duties include finding and writing original news stories and columns on the sports and news/talk radio, television, print & advertising business, interviewing broadcast professionals for feature stories, interacting daily with our website, social media, and newsletter editors to promote our work, assigning stories and working through ideas and pitches with our writing team, creating branded content to drive revenue, analyzing traffic and content to improve performance, recruiting writers, and building relationships across the industry. Good grammar, fact checking skills, SEO and keyword strategy, headline writing, and an ability to meet deadline while operating in a remote environment are all vital to the job. Audio and video experience is an added bonus.
Given that this position involves managing and supporting our team and connecting with broadcasters, we’re looking for a relationship builder not a journalist who’s only focus is being first on a story. We value our people and partnerships much more than traffic.
Be advised that this is a Monday thru Friday position but we’re looking for someone who lives and breathes the industry, and understands that breaking news doesn’t always fit into a 9-5 window. If you like our brands, have a passion to write, love the media industry, and think you can make a difference, send your resume and writing samples to JBarrett@sportsradiopd.com.
