The DPS will handle editorial production of the print newspapers for each of our eight daily metros, as well as suburban newspapers and other print products.
Responsibilities for designers include designing news, sports, local and business sections and section fronts for the majority of tronc papers. Solid editorial news judgment will be used to make decisions on deadline regarding typography, story and photo placement, and headline hierarchy. Designers will write headlines and trim stories, as well as work with editors and colleagues to enhance the visual presentation of tronc newspapers.
Editors’ responsibilities will include curating appropriate news and features articles from wire sources; copy editing articles for publication; proofing and writing headlines; and designing modular content to be shared across all Tribune Publishing newspapers. Editors should have a strong command of the English language and editing skills that conform to accepted journalistic techniques and the style of the publication.
Successful designers and editors (Print Production Specialists) will possess initiative, good news judgment, attention to detail, incredible organizational skills and a commitment to accuracy. Designers and editors must be able to multitask and perform well under constant deadlines with minimal-to-moderate supervision.
