Louisiana Business Inc., a producer of regional publications in Baton Rouge, seeks an editorial director who will oversee all our editorial departments. Our operations include the biweekly Greater Baton Rouge Business Report; 225, a monthly city magazine; inRegister, a monthly lifestyles magazine; Daily Report, a twice-a-day business e-newsletter; and a special projects unit that produces specialty and custom publications.
This position requires more than a talented journalist. The job also demands a proven leader who can create an environment where colleagues pull together and seize upon opportunities for collaboration among our publications; a skilled coach who can bring out the best in young and experienced staffers alike; a good networker who is willing to immerse him or herself in our community; and a news and information junkie who is comfortable in both print and digital media.
Candidates should have at least 10 years of management experience in either newspaper or magazine publishing, with a background in business journalism a plus. They should be skilled wordsmiths and story editors in their own right. And they should understand the operation of content management systems (particularly WordPress) and be well-versed in reaching audiences through e-newsletters. If this position interests you, send your resume with references and hard-copy samples or PDFs of publications and e-newsletters that you’ve produced to:
