Daily Editor

The Public’s Radio seeks a Daily Editor for its growing news department. If you’re passionate about journalism, eager to try new approaches to daily story-telling across platforms, we invite you to think about joining us at The Public’s Radio.

We are a small, but growing shop, serving Rhode Island and southeastern Massachusetts. In the last three years, we’ve added three regional bureaus, an investigative desk and a science and environment reporter to our mix. And we plan to continue to grow in the coming years as we plan for stronger local broadcast and digital content at The Public’s Radio. But we will never replace the vastly declining sources of local news and we don’t aspire to do that. We take a strategic and creative approach to daily news coverage, looking for new ways to tell stories through broadcast and digital channels, prioritizing the stories our journalists are following in a more longitudinal way. That said, when news breaks, whether it’s a hurricane or a major social justice protest, we cover it, with accurate, timely reporting. In fact, our breaking news coverage in 2020 was recognized with both PMJA and regional Murrow awards.

The Daily Editor will work closely with the editorial team at The Public’s Radio, assigning and editing daily stories, 2-ways and short turnaround features for broadcast and web. The Daily Editor will be part of the planning process for our future journalism initiatives. The daily editor reports to the Chief Content Officer/Managing Editor.
