Gannett's Nashville Design Studio is seeking a talented Wire Desk Team Leader to direct a team of copy editors who select and supply news, sports, business and feature wire and syndicate content to daily newspapers across the Southeast.
Candidates should have a passion for news, a strong editing portfolio and superior leadership skills. Strong news judgment is critical, as this editor will be selecting stories and photos for a number of different newspapers with different audiences and needs.
Applicants should have at least 10 years of newspaper experience, preferably on large Metro dailies. He or she would have worked in multiple areas of the newsroom including hard news, features, business and sports, and would have extensive experience as a manager and a strong working knowledge of a daily newspaper's total operation including production and advertising.

The Team Leader will do annual reviews of the wire editing team and help the Operations Manager maintain content and page flow on time and on deadline, and will also work closely with Design Team Leaders to ensure everyone works together as a team to display the best pages and stories.
Nashville is the heart of country music and so much more. Middle Tennessee is home to professional sports teams, world-class universities, a lively nightlife, arts and the outdoors.
The Nashville Design Studio is certainly not your traditional newsroom. Rather, it has a funky, non-newsroom atmosphere that has to be seen to be believed. Simply put: It's a pretty cool place to work.
What more could you ask for? A fantastic job in a fantastic location.
