The Charlotte Observer is looking for a metro editor -- a key senior leader in our newsroom who will help lead, coach and inspire our journalists. Our mission is exclusive, essential accountability reporting that serves our community, and the metro editor is at the heart of our work conceiving and developing journalism toward that purpose. The metro editor knows how to spot a great story and help a reporter go get it. He or she must have the highest journalism ethics and sound judgment and be a skilled story editor. This editor should be energized by coaching and collaborating with reporters, editors, visual journalists, other Carolinas newsrooms and McClatchy colleagues who support our journalism. He or she must be a collaborative coach who is excited about helping our most experienced editors and reporters deliver “only in The Observer” journalism, and is also skilled at helping early career reporters master a beat, break news and develop deeper enterprise journalism.
