You will produce content distributed to consumers across multiple platforms including mobile apps, desktop site, two daily newspapers and 26 weeklies. http://www.cincinnati.com/sports/

    You will join a team that has won national awards for storytelling, reporting, videos, and digital experience, and one that leads the region in innovation with video programming, hosting live events and podcasts in bars, and creating unique digital content.

    Able to lead top-notch journalism.
    Has an insatiable curiosity about and is committed to understanding and meeting our customers’ needs.
    Very comfortable using data and working with an analyst and Content Marketing director in the newsroom to shape decisions.

    So Cincinnati is looking for a strategist, but Des Moines is looking for a coach.

    It depends on the market size and needs of the newsroom.

    So would a coaching strategist be at a major market, or would that be a strategic coach?

    Maybe they're going away from "editor" because that implies that people still edit stories.
