Content Coach, Evening Sun, Hanover, PA

Posted 9/23/16

The Evening Sun, a state-of-the-art Gannett newsroom in Hanover, Pa., is looking for an experienced, innovative content coach to help guide and lead a newsroom of talented journalists.

The right candidate will coach and direct the work of reporters while encouraging investigative, watchdog and solutions journalism. You will work with reporters on beat development, while supporting independent planning and self-direction. You will work with the web producer to identify trends and topics of high interest to our viewers, and you will use analytics to guide coverage decisions.

You must be a self-starter and critical thinker -- someone who juggles multiple tasks in multiple environments. You will always look for the next best ideas in digital journalism, and you will never be afraid to fail. This person will have a knowledge of video, social media and photography.

You will work closely with journalists at our sister newsrooms in York, Chambersburg and Lebanon, at times contributing to regional efforts as well as national ones across the USA TODAY NETWORK.

The daily responsibilities include:   

  • Create and maintain a rich enterprise schedule to ensure deep-dive looks into each beat.
  • Work daily with four news reporters and one web producer/reporter on story development, writing and execution for a digital audience.
  • Work with the web producer to translate analytics into actionable items.  
  • Participate in regional brainstorming and strategy sessions. Help drive up the best ideas for creating a new era of outstanding journalism in the Hanover area.
  • Meet with the public as needed and as available. Help promote the Evening Sun brand through in-person appearances and events.
  • Plan the print budget for three-day publication, work with the regional print planner and ensure that print deadlines are met.  
  • Set schedules and vacations for reporters and producer/reporter. Provide annual performance evaluations.
