Ballantine Newspapers, and it flagship publication the Durango Herald, have been committed to excellence in journalism for more than sixty years.

Durango and the surrounding communities of Southwest Colorado that Ballantine newspapers serve defy a simplistic definition. This is a dynamic and highly-educated community with eclectic interests and broad perspectives ranging from the progressive to the conservative.

The Managing Editor is the primary advocate for the critical role of the press as watchdog for the public good, the protection of open meeting laws and democratic values, investigative reporting, and protection of the individual against state overreach.

This includes listening to the public to discern their needs; building community relationships, and measuring the impact of reporting on the audience being served.

The Candidate:
You are a mid-career professional with experience in both metro and community news organizations. You have a passion for and a demonstrated ability to push staff toward a “digital-first” newsroom environment. You thrive on connection, conversation and participation with your audience. You can critically evaluate newsroom processes, structure and workflow to achieve efficiency without sacrificing quality. You can consult with the business side of the organization to gain insight into your audience while still maintaining your editorial independence.

The Requirements:
Bachelor’s degree required and Master’s Degree preferred from a leading Journalism School within an accredited College or University. At least fifteen years of daily newspaper experience including at least five years in a Managing Editor role.
