In addition, the editor will communicate a long-term editorial strategy for growth in Rhode Island that can potentially serve as a model for expansion into other areas of New England. The ideal candidate will have the ambition to do groundbreaking work and grow the Globe’s Rhode Island coverage into an essential part of the lives of every resident of the state. Specifically, they will excel at spotting story ideas, directing reporters and coverage, shaping and crafting copy, reaching new audiences, and engaging existing ones.
