Then welcome to Charlottesville, home not only to the highly esteemed University of Virginia but also to a vibrant arts, food, sports, business and outdoors scene that is a constant source of local and national news. The city editor will coach and lead a team of five full-time reporters to produce award-winning, fast-breaking digital content and also will help produce the daily print edition. We want a wordsmith and a news hound, but most importantly, we want someone who has been in the trenches and wants to lead an eager, ambitious team to excellence.
