  • Investigations Editor - Wilkes-Barre
    Times Leader Media Group
    Wilkes-Barre, PA

    Times Leader Media Group is seeking a public safety/investigations editor to lead a four-person team.

    We’re looking for someone with a track record of leading teams that dig beneath the surface. Instead of the “big reveal” Sunday packages of old that span multiple print pages, we prefer a steady stream of incremental updates on topics you and your team investigate. 

    Our region is an investigative journalist’s playground. We're home to the Kids for Cash judicial-kickback scandal, which made international headlines. Over the past two years alone, we’ve had the FBI raid a credit union used by municipal employees and the state has investigated our transit authority for completely fabricating its ridership numbers. When everything from City Hall’s credit union to the county bus system is corrupt, you know there’s no shortage of hard news.

    Your team will include our police, courts and investigative reporters. In addition to guiding them and editing their work, we’d like you to get your hands dirty with some writing and reporting of your own. Additionally, as part of our newsroom management team, you’ll occasionally be asked to edit other stories.

    To apply, send a cover letter, your resume, your salary requirements, and three PDF examples of projects you’ve authored or managed to Executive Editor George Spohr at gspohr@timesleader.com. 

    Times Leader Media Group, based in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, consists of a regional daily newspaper, three suburban weeklies and an alt-weekly. We're located in the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre metropolitan area, made famous for being the fictional home of NBC's "The Office." Our region boasts tons of amenities — great restaurants, live shows and sporting events — and a low cost of living. Outdoors enthusiasts will appreciate our proximity to the Poconos. Those craving big-city culture will find New York City and Philadelphia only two hours away.
