Vice President/Editorial Page Editor, The Kansas City Star Description The Kansas City Star seeks a passionate editor to lead its award-winning editorial board, collaborating with a proven team of opinion journalists in helping set the agenda for Kansas City and the surrounding region through deeply reported and compellingly written commentary and analysis. The successful candidate will be a proven leader and a digital-first journalist who has a vision for providing compelling and insightful commentary that resonates with our readers.

This leader will be charged with growing readership for our editorials and columns and building audiences for additional offerings, including video and podcasts.-- Success in this position requires being at the center of our communities, leading relevant discussions of local and statewide issues and including a wide range of diverse political views in our opinion content with the aim of leading a civil community conversation about local public policy issues.-- The Editorial Page editor will help develop and edit reported editorials representing The Star Editorial Board's views, as well as reported columns. He or she will take the lead in soliciting commentary from influential thinkers throughout our region and will continually work to find ways to engage our audiences.-- A strong understanding of how to grow and engage audiences on digital platforms is essential, as are basic social media and video skills. We expect timely editorials on breaking news, as well as reported editorials that break news.-- While editorial board members write for both online and print, a digital metabolism is required for this position. This editor will also play a key role in our outreach efforts, planning community events, speaking to local groups and appearing on video. Key requirements
