This is our story

What part will you play?

Digital News Editors are best-in-class shapers and sharpeners of stories and ideas. A true partner with writers and assignment editors who make good stories great. News editors are multi-skilled and talented in that they know how to edit as an editor and read as a reader. They can copy edit and save bacon daily from honest mistakes big and small. They can curate and tag. They can SEO. They know what stories -- in either text or video -- should be linked up. They know when attribution is needed and when it's overkill. They know the difference between a first version digital story that is 'good enough to go' and when to hold to get more -- and when that line is unclear, they know to ask.

Digital News Editors edit stories from a wide range of sources including:

The digital news writers.

Other writers across CNN Digital, worldwide.

Contributors including opinion columnists and external contributors.


Field teams who may not be able to sit and write but can give great material by phone, slack, etc on the ground from any corner of the world. Editors will turn that material into a story or a powerful anecdote.

Anywhere else in CNN -- we have interns, APs, producers, reporters and correspondents and anchors throughout the org who may get assigned or approved to write for digital platforms. What will you be doing?

News Editors may be assigned specialty areas by shift, including being a second set of eyes on homepages, on alerting, on key initiatives that need a good comb thru and/or a creative punch. This shift is 10pm EST to 6am EST and will include at least one weekend shift, sometimes two.

Position can be located in Atlanta (preferred), New York, or Los Angeles.

To that end, all digital news editors will work with a wide range of copy from a wide range of writers. That means news editors must be excellent communicators and diplomats. They are excellent providers of feedback who help elevate CNN's storytelling across a wide range of digital platforms.

News Editors will be called on to write as needed -- their bylines will be occasionally seen solo or as a contributing name.

It's a varied job -- some days may be fast and furious with edits on a single and fast-flowing developing story. Some days will have a wide range of pieces in different forms and formats to edit -- an enterprise story, a newsletter, an opinion piece, a story from a correspondent in a war zone. And some days will be project-based, working on a longer term investigative story, often with other editors, producers and the Row, Standards & Practices and/or Legal.

And last but never least: News Editors are often the final step before a story goes to the programming team to get distributed to millions of people worldwide - all news editors work intently to make sure our stories are accurate and fair so that we continue to grow the trust between CNN and our audiences.

What do we need from you?

At least 4 or more years of digital editing experience

College degree or equivalent industry experience

Ability to work 10pm EST to 6am EST and at least 1 weekend shift, possibly two. But wait, there’s more!

Paid time off every year to volunteer
