The Chicago Reporter is looking for a talented and visionary editor-in-chief.

We are looking for a new leader with proven, hands-on editing skills to lead a newsroom of six full time staff. The job is primarily editorial. The new editor will have resources to hire an individual to manage the day-to-day fundraising. The next leader must have solid experience in investigative reporting and editing with a reporting focus in the areas of race and poverty.

The new editor will build on the Reporter’s legacy as a one-of-a-kind nonprofit media organization with a 45-year track record of combining data analysis and narrative storytelling to shed light on racial inequities in one of the most segregated cities in the nation.

We seek someone who can shape and direct editorial strategy and coverage, manage investigative projects, and serve as the public face of the organization. We are looking for someone with 7-10 years of experience in digital and print journalism to continue our growth as an authority on issues of race and poverty and to advance partnerships with local and national news entities.
