Digital Managing Editor

Townquare Media

Are you a passionate content creator with exceptional writing and editing expertise? Are you digital savvy with social media skills to match? If so, then keep reading!

We are a diversified media company looking for someone to oversee and maintain the digital platforms for our seven radio brands in the Sioux Falls area. With a maniacal focus on consumer experience, this individual will work closely with our on-air talent content for their shows, grow their brands online, and create the best possible experience for their audience across all platforms

Do you bore easily? Not here. No two days are ever the same at Townsquare Media. As the Digital Managing Editor, one minute you’ll be editing an article about the ten best burgers in town, the next you’ll be implementing a new Facebook strategy, only to close out the day by teaching a DJ how to edit the video they shot while riding a roller coaster with the Mayor

The Digital Managing Editor will also work closely with the local sales team to monetize content and develop new opportunities for revenue growth across all digital platforms

This is an agile position that requires solid troubleshooting, good professional judgment, level-10 communication, and technical prowess. Patience is essential, as is a great sense of humor – this is radio after all, not a library! (Not that there’s anything wrong with libraries. We love libraries. Seriously. They’re the best.) This is not a typical “webmaster” position
