New Hampshire Public Radio (NHPR) is seeking an editor with a track record of fostering ambitious audio journalism to help manage and edit across our long-form reporting teams.

The Senior Editor is a key editorial leader, helping build NHPR's capacity for telling thoughtful, deeply reported stories. The ideal candidate recognizes that narrative journalism can change minds and empower audiences. This person thinks carefully about story structure, has an ear for surprising audio, and can edit with flair. In addition, we are looking for an editor who has an inclusive approach to their work and is committed to finding stories and featuring voices that reflect the full range of human experience.

The Senior Editor's primary responsibility will be as lead editor for Document, a newsroom unit that produces multi-platform, high-impact, narrative reporting projects. This work entails leading a small group of journalists in ambitious projects that often take months to come to fruition. The Senior Editor will provide guidance and support for reporters while also managing a production calendar that ensures stories meet reasonable deadlines. The Senior Editor also will contribute, as needed, to other longform projects emerging from the newsroom and on-demand teams. The Senior Editor reports to the News Director and works closely with the head of the podcast unit to align work with editorial and strategic goals. This position is located in Concord, NH. Working remotely may be an option.

NHPR is committed to diversity and building an inclusive environment for people of all backgrounds and ages. And we are taking steps to meet that commitment. We especially encourage applications from members of communities traditionally underrepresented in journalism.

New Hampshire Public Radio is an independent and trusted source for news and information, and the state's largest radio news service. NHPR's newsroom, digital team, podcasts and original programs consistently earn national recognition for their in-depth reporting and production. NHPR is the winner of the 2015, 2017 and 2018 National Edward R. Murrow Award for overall excellence.

NHPR offers a generous benefits package that includes health and dental insurance; company-paid short and long term disability; flexible spending accounts; a 403(b) savings plan with a company match and a free on-site fitness center. Employees are entitled to three weeks of vacation time and twelve paid holidays, as well as paid sick and parental leave.

Responsibilities include:

  • Help generate new ideas, greenlight pitches for Document projects, and provide big-picture editing support as well as line edits at the script level.
  • Manage two reporter/producers and assist them in organizing and focusing their stories throughout reporting, writing, editing and fact checking process.
  • Ensure a diversity of voices and perspectives in stories.
  • Assist hosts/reporters/producers with preparation for interviews and reporting assignments.
  • Edit and mix audio.
  • Assist with future planning and strategic partnerships.
  • Assist with creation of digital products, including writing and editing copy and social media posts, as needed.
  • Foster and contribute to a supportive team environment to ensure communicative and efficient production.
  • Monitor shows for overall balance, variety of stories, and types of pieces.
  • Regularly provide constructive critiques of stories in meetings with staff and contributors.
