Idaho Business Review is Idaho’s leading business news source. Our integrated platform includes the weekly Idaho Business Review newspaper, daily news and leads at idahobusinessreview.com, daily IBR email updates, targeted special business lead publications such as The Book of Lists, and several business-focused events throughout the year.
We are seeking an experienced managing editor to help with the day-to-day editorial operations at the company. In addition to the tasks associated with producing daily website and weekly newspaper content, as well as roughly a dozen special sections throughout the year, the job could include:
- Working on annual award events, including cultivating honorees, assigning freelancers to the special publications associated with the awards and editing award publications
- Planning annual panel discussions, including coming up with topics, finding panelists and developing questions
- Coordinating a webinar series, including coming up with topics, finding panelists and developing questions
We’re looking for someone with at least three years of managerial experience at a highly productive newsroom and five years of reporting experience.
The perfect candidate must have solid editing skills and know AP style inside and out. The right candidate will have had experience working in a digital-first environment in which breaking news throughout the day is as much a priority as developing solid B2B stories for a highly respected weekly print product. Preferred candidates will have had some business journal experience and knowledge of the Idaho market. Attending industry events as a representative of the Idaho Business Review is also a key requirement of the position.
