ASPEN PUBLIC RADIO: MANAGING EDITOR

Join a growing public media organization in one of the most awe-inspiring areas of the country -  the heart of the snowcapped Rocky Mountains. The Managing Editor is the leader and chief editor of Aspen Public Radio’s newsroom, overseeing news staff, production, and output of news on all platforms. This position will lead the development of the staff’s professional skills and performance.

We seek a sharp, curious, hard-working, team-oriented person who is excited by new media ideas, experimenting and by helping to design and grow an evolving organization that has deep community roots and a large audience. Our culture is friendly and familiar, but professional with high standards. We work hard, we play hard.

The Roaring Fork Valley has a population ranging from billionaires to middle-class to undocumented Central American immigrants. Two daily papers in our area offers a unique advantage to the Aspen Public Radio strategic vision of focusing on stories not being heard and deepening and contextualizing those in the public eye. Our area is unique and nuanced, with economic diversity, world-class recreation and an engaged public.
