The Oklahoman, the state’s top print and online news organization, seeks a digitally savvy editor to oversee our three-member breaking news team and to work with our five-member Live/Enterprise team.

We are looking for someone with strong news judgment and solid editing skills who can not only lead coverage of a breaking news story, but also can spot trends and plan and execute investigative and enterprise packages for both our print and online platforms.

The applicant needs to be a self-starter, have a sense of urgency and be a motivator and mentor who can help reporters uncover the facts and weave a good tale.

Preferred applicants should be comfortable using social media and other digital tools to both report and disseminate news. The ideal candidate would serve as a newsroom leader in creating alternative forms of storytelling that cater to our digital audience.

The ability to be creative and collaborative with coworkers across the newsroom is crucial.
