Managing Editor

On-Air Managing Editor

Do you have on-air experience?  Do you have leadership skills?

If you can answer “yes” to both this may be the job that you never knew you wanted!

WLNE-TV (ABC6) in beautiful Southern New England has a new role that combines these skillsets into one extraordinarily unique opportunity for the right candidate.

The role of On-Air Managing Editor involves much more than working on the assignment desk and managing the daily newsgathering process.  Our Managing Editor will also serve in an on-air role as a breaking and right now news anchor for our morning news.

While you’re keeping track of breaking news for our morning audience, you’ll also be responsible for getting the day started, building assignment daybooks and daily coverage plans.  You must have (or be able to quickly acquire) a strong understanding of the market and audience, identifying stories that resonate.

Additionally, you’ll be responsible for leading our reporting team, working with reporters each day to develop original stories that break out from the competition.

Finally, you must have superb organizational and communication skills; and be a sharp, concise writer, creating content not just for on-air, but for the ABC6 digital platforms as well.

Ideally, candidates will have at least three years of experience.  Interested applicants should e-mail a resume, cover letter and demo reel link to

WLNE-TV / ABC6 is an equal opportunity employer.
