Greenwire Editor

E&E News is looking for a journalist with expertise in environmental and energy coverage to lead its flagship publication. The Greenwire editor coordinates five editors, an art desk and a couple dozen reporters in an intense mid-day production cycle.

About you

  • You know how to produce first-class journalism. You’ll have a generous travel budget and a large team of experienced reporters. Can you get great stuff from your team and still feed a hungry daily publication?
  • You're a team player. The Greenwire editor must collaborate with editors of E&E News' other daily publications to make sure our coverage is strong across the board.
  • You’re a wordsmith. Everybody's hands-on in our newsroom. Our editors must quickly diagnose and repair problem stories, write smart headlines and shape lively features on deadline.
  • You have impeccable news judgment. We strive to give our readers the most comprehensive daily coverage of environment and energy issues, so our editors have to make good calls on what stories to pursue and how to present them.
  • You have a sense of humor. Our publications are serious but not solemn. We do hard-edged policy stories, for sure, but we aren’t boring.

About Greenwire

Founded in 1991 by former New York Times reporter Philip Shabecoff, Greenwire was a faxed digest of environment news clipped from other publications. Environment & Energy Publishing, LLC – now E&E News -- bought Greenwire from National Journal in 2000, added original reporting and saw it grow into an award-winning publication with subscribers across the country.
