The Mason City Globe Gazette is looking for a Local News Editor who will lead by example. We’re an award-winning newsroom that likes to work collaboratively to inform and entertain our print and digital audiences. The Local News Editor will be the primary point of contact for the public, the person who sets the tone for the newsroom’s work and its primary news coach. You’ll need to be able to recognize a good story when you see it and help your staff do its best work. You’ll be responsible for making the call on what goes in our print product each day as well as what gets priority online. We’re looking for someone who is outgoing, comfortable with challenging status quo, and eager to innovate. Experience in coaching reporters and copy editing is helpful, but we’re willing to train the right person looking to make the leap into management. Understanding analytics and multi-media as a tool to inform and supplement reporting is a must. What do you get? A close-knit, collegial newsroom ready and willing to push you to do your best work. Some of the lowest living costs in the Midwest, and a home less than a day’s drive away from Minneapolis/St. Paul, Chicago, St. Louis, and Kansas City. Competitive wages, benefits, vacation time and a 401K are part of the package. Please submit a resume and a cover letter that explains how you would help your team do its best work to North Iowa Editor Jaci Smith at
