      • Skill and versatility as an editor and a writer, including the ability to shape everything from breaking news briefs to long-form, magazine-style pieces in a way that best serves and engages the broadest possible audience.?
      • Sound news judgment, and a demonstrated ability to ?see the story? that is going to matter to readers and to anticipate reader interests before they exist.
      • Excellent journalism ethics.
      • An interest in and aptitude for storytelling using a broad range of media, including the written word, video, photography, podcasts and other audio, and whatever comes next.
      • Excellent people and team-building skills.Interested in the job? Contact Southeast Regional Editor Robyn Tomlin at?
