    We've got an opening at the Green Bay Press-Gazette for someone who can lead our Green Bay Packers coverage. I'm looking for an innovative thinker who can strategize ways to build on our global audience over multiple platforms, and then help execute the plan. The successful candidate will oversee our Packers team that includes columnist Pete Dougherty, and reporters Weston Hodkiewicz, Ryan Wood and Rich Ryman, as well as work closely with photojournalists Jim Matthews and Evan Siegle. Here is the advert:

    Green Bay Packers Editor

    We’re looking for a dynamic leader to take our award-winning Green Bay Packers coverage team to even greater heights. Our Packers editor will direct a strong team of reporters and photographers/videographers who cover the NFL’s most-storied franchise for an audience that spans the globe.

    The Green Bay-based Packers team provides primary coverage for Gannett Wisconsin Media, a network of 10 newsrooms that make up the state’s largest news organization. The team’s coverage also appears throughout the USA TODAY Media Network, which includes more than 90 news markets nationwide.

    We want a leader who is intensely focused on content and the best ways to connect with our audience across any platform from social media to print, with an emphasis on original coverage and strong opinions and analysis. You’ve got to have a proven record of covering professional or major college sports, but we have production teams to take care of getting our Packers content where it needs to go. We’re hiring for creative content leadership and a traditional media background is by no means a requirement.

    We expect breaking news, fan engagement, in-depth features and unexpected enterprise on this highly competitive beat. A rock-solid work ethic is essential for this year-round endeavor.

    The position is based in Green Bay, where the quality of life is sky-high and living expenses are low. We offer a competitive compensation and benefits package which includes medical, dental, vision, generous vacation policy, 401(k), and more.

    Please submit your resume and cover letter and apply online at www.gannett.com/careers.
