Associate Editors assist in the writing and editing of original and aggregated news stories, news round-ups, explainers, social media posts and a daily newsletter, all while being mindful of editorial standards and targeted audiences.

Associate Editors will work with state editors, national editors, and social editors to share, flip, or localize stories that are high performing elsewhere and show potential to have cross-state appeal in partner markets. Together, they identify traffic trends, breaking news, and sourcing strategies to inform aggregated stories and franchises. They also help other reporters identify this content. In addition, Associate Editors assist the State Managing Editor with CMS issues.

At the direction of their State Managing Editor, Associate Editors can take on longer-lead projects such as features, work on strategy, and do multi-platform and multimedia work.
