Digital Managing Editor

JOB DESCRIPTION:

Digital Managing Editor, Townsquare Media

*Must submit writing samples in order to be considered for this position.

Are you a passionate content creator with exceptional writing and editing expertise? Are you digital savvy with social media skills to match? If so, then keep reading!

We are a diversified media company looking for someone to oversee and maintain the digital platforms for our 6 radio brands in the Lansing area. With a maniacal focus on consumer experience, this individual will work closely with our on-air talent to develop content for their shows, grow their brands online, and create the best possible experience for their audience across all platforms.

Do you bore easily? Not here. No two days are ever the same at Townsquare Media. As the Digital Managing Editor, one minute you’ll be editing an article about the ten best burgers in town, the next you’ll be implementing a new Facebook strategy, only to close out the day by teaching a DJ how to edit the video they shot while riding a roller coaster with the mayor.

This is an agile position that requires solid troubleshooting, good professional judgment, level-10 communication, and technical prowess. Patience is essential, as is a great sense of humor – this is radio after all, not a library! (Not that there’s anything wrong with libraries. We love libraries. Seriously. They’re the best.) This is not a typical “webmaster” position.

This position reports to the local Market President.
