The 19th is hiring an experienced, ambitious and innovative editor-in-chief to lead one of the most extraordinary new news organizations in the country, and to take our year-old newsroom to scale.
In this role, you’ll set an editorial strategy for politics and policy journalism that centers the lived experiences of women — particularly women of color — and the LGBTQ+ community, and that deeply examines and explains gender and racial equity issues at the national, state and local levels.
You’ll oversee a dramatic expansion of our journalism, from our daily and breaking news operation to enterprise and accountability coverage, data visualizations, podcasts, community-driven storytelling and more. You’ll play a key role in setting the tone for our newsletters and live events programming. And you will relish in the range of skills needed to lead a digital-first newsroom, from line editing stories to planning ahead for major news events to nurturing a diverse team.
You’ll work in concert with our audience, partnerships, revenue, creative and events leads to prioritize the expanded reach of our journalism (and journalists) across platforms, from our own website to broadcast airwaves to the pages of news organizations across the nation.
Most importantly: You’ll do it with heart, with bravery, with a deep empathy for our team and our readers, and with a vision for the future of news that is far more representative, more inclusive and more sustainable than it is today.
In short order, and in a global pandemic, The 19th has punched far above its weight, from our exceptional journalism to our must-see live events to our stellar fundraising. Now we’re looking for the newsroom leader who can take us to the next level.
We know there are great candidates who might not check all these boxes or who possess important skills we didn’t list here. If that’s you, don’t hesitate to apply and tell us about yourself. We also encourage members of traditionally underrepresented communities to apply, including people of color, LGBTQ+ people and people with disabilities
