Job Description:

South Carolina Opinion Editor
We are looking for a passionate editor to lead and expand our opinion journalism efforts at The State in Columbia, South Carolina, and to coordinate our opinion work at other McClatchy news organizations in South Carolina.-- The successful candidate will be a proven leader and a digital-first journalist who has a vision for providing compelling and insightful commentary that resonates with our readers. She or he will direct the editorial board's efforts to effect change, break news, write persuasively, elevate varied perspectives and work across multiple platforms. This leader will be charged with growing readership for our editorials and columns and building audiences for additional offerings, including video and podcasts.-- Success in this position requires being at the center of our communities, leading relevant discussions of local and statewide issues and including a wide range of diverse political views in our opinion content with the aim of leading a civil community conversation about local public policy issues.-- The opinion editor will write reported editorials representing The State Editorial Board's views, as well as reported columns. He or she will take the lead in soliciting commentary from influential thinkers throughout South Carolina and will continually work to find ways to engage our audiences.-- A strong understanding of how to grow and engage audiences on digital platforms is essential, as are basic social media and video skills. We expect timely editorials on breaking news, as well as reported editorials that break news.-- While editorial board members write for both online and print, a digital metabolism is required for this position. The opinion editor will also play a key role in our outreach efforts, planning community events, speaking to local groups-- and appearing on video. The opinion editor will be based in Columbia, South Carolina, but will also take the lead in coordinating opinion efforts in McClatchy's other South Carolina newsrooms, including Hilton Head, Beaufort, Myrtle Beach and Rock Hill.-- Key requirements

  • At least 3-5 years of reporting experience, preferably on local issues and/or government.
  • Skill and versatility as a writer and editor, including the ability to shape opinion pieces in a way that best serves and engages the broadest possible audience.
  • Strong writing skills, excellent news judgment and a demonstrated ability to "see the story" that is going to matter to readers.
  • A zeal for understanding and using readership data to inform the editorial process.
  • An interest in telling stories using a variety of media and enthusiasm for learning new skills and technologies.
  • Comfort with a job that will be demanding, fast-paced and constantly evolving.
  • Minimum Bachelor's degree preferred.
