Virginia Media has a rich, 154-year history and an exciting digital future. We are hiring a Senior Content Editor! 


You’re a creative, flexible editor with strong news judgment, a collaborative approach, and big-picture thinking. You have a cool-headed, solutions-oriented attitude, seek possibilities not limitations and are a solid coach with a sense of humor. 


We’re the Virginian-Pilot -- an award-winning, multi-platform news operation with a growing audience. A progressive news operation with a focus on communication and collaboration at all levels, we’re passionate about serving our readers and helping our journalists develop new skills. 

Help lead our team of talented journalists and drive coverage of Norfolk, Portsmouth and Chesapeake, three cities with disparate challenges. Besides covering the city governments, this team of reporters also covers public safety, education, economic development and state government.  

Why you should work for us: 

  • We’re the largest news operation in Virginia, with coverage from Richmond to the Outer Banks of North Carolina. That’s a big audience — looking for both statewide and hyperlocal coverage. 
  • We aim for ambitious journalism that makes an impact on Virginians’ lives. Our newsroom features many award winners, including multiple Pulitzer finalists.  
  • Our coverage area includes the world’s largest Navy base, many cities and miles of beaches. Annual topics include the Something in the Water music festival in Virginia Beach and the Chincoteague pony swim. 
  • Comprehensive benefits package including medical, dental and vision insurance, 401(k) match, and unlimited (paid) flex time off policy 


Tribune Publishing is committed to hiring people with diverse backgrounds, voices and visions. Be yourself. Bring yourself. Because that’s the only way we will deliver on our mission to provide meaningful journalism to the diverse communities we serve. We hold ourselves accountable for fostering inclusion and opportunity across race, gender, age, creed, identity and experience. Join us.
