This job is at the heart of our national news coverage, and involves managing a team of veteran regional correspondents from Chicago to Houston. This position reports to the U.S. News Editor, and is one of three editors responsible for leading thematic coverage of national affairs issues across the country. It represents a special opportunity to be part of an expanding national news operation at the WSJ that also involves specialist teams covering law, education and real estate. Candidates should be experienced editors comfortable juggling such breaking news events as hurricanes, big crime stories and state and city politics with deeper enterprise reporting on the broader issues animating Americans, such as religion, race, immigration and demographic change.
