Anchorage Daily News / Alaska Journal of Commerce

The Anchorage Daily News and the Alaska Journal of Commerce are looking for a business editor to help produce and manage coverage across multiple platforms for demanding audiences.

We need someone with a record of producing journalism at a consistently high level. You're solid in the basics: news judgment, editing and writing, audience, close attention to detail. You have a demonstrated ability to produce engaging and accurate content as part of a team. You understand online news. 

We need someone with experience covering business, consumer and economic news, and how they intersect with public policy. We cover a state bursting with rich, complex, interesting stories. Among the sectors important here: Energy, health care, fisheries, nonprofits, tourism, airlines and shipping, retail, food, government, telecom and tech, cannabis and many more. We cover everything from mom-and-pop startups to multinational corporations, from high-profile resource debates to local planning decisions.

You'll supervise multiple reporters and work with a team of editors to produce content in the Anchorage Daily News, Alaska's most-read news site and newspaper, along with the weekly Alaska Journal of Commerce. 

We have a strong focus on and commitment to audiences — serving them, listening to them, growing them, retaining them. We’ve been awarded three Pulitzer Prizes for public service, including in 2020. 

We’re independently owned and offer a competitive salary and benefits in a diverse, livable city with Alaska and all its outdoor opportunities right out the door. We value a diverse and inclusive workforce, work-life balance and workplace flexibility. We’ll relocate the right candidates.
