Managing Editor/Politics & Washington
USA TODAY, one of the nation’s premier news organizations, is seeking a dynamic and transformational leader to serve as its Managing Editor/Politics & Washington. The successful candidate will be a seasoned journalist who can articulate a strategic vision for political and issue-based coverage in USA TODAY’s Washington bureau while setting and executing coverage and audience priorities.

We’re looking for strong leadership in news judgment, impactful storytelling, collaboration, innovation and audience growth.  We want someone with bold ideas and the organizational and people skills to make them happen.

The right candidate keeps close to the political scene but also knows how to set priorities for distinctive coverage that makes the most impact and resonates beyond the political hive of Washington. This candidate will need to work well across our 260-newsroom network, building relationships at both the local and national levels to make the most of this powerful, unique resource.
