Content Coach

USA TODAY NETWORK-Wisconsin seeks a storytelling coach who can help journalists in four Central Wisconsin newsrooms raise the quality and impact of their work in writing and presenting stories across multiple platforms.

This is not an assignment editor. Rather, the storytelling coach helps reporters and visual journalists sharpen their focus, go after the relevant details, understand their audience and present their stories, photos, videos and other content in a compelling way on social, mobile and other forms of media.

The job emphasizes front-end editing but involves line editing as needed depending on the story's complexity or the journalist's development.

The content coach has an audience-focused mentality while also a collegial approach to fellow journalists on this state and national award-winning team. The coach will work directly with a regional news director, planning editor and engagement editor to oversee the work of newsrooms in Wausau, Stevens Point, Wisconsin Rapids and Marshfield. In addition, this position is part of a statewide network that collaborates on various journalism projects.

An ideal candidate will have a minimum of five to seven years of experience in daily journalism, including at least two years as a reporter as well as demonstrated success leading a team. Expertise in social media and a deep understanding of mobile audiences is preferred.

Gannett Co., Inc. (NYSE: GCI) is a proud equal opportunity employer. We are a drug free, EEO employer committed to a diverse workforce. We will consider all qualified candidates regardless of race, color, national origin, sex, age, marital status, personal appearance, sexual orientation, gender identity, family responsibilities, disability, education, political affiliation or veteran status.
