Golden opportunity here: OrlandoSentinel.com is looking for a senior online editor!
Not only do you get to be part of an ambitious online newsroom initiative, you also get to work with really wonderful people, visit Disney World whenever you want and even get to tell yours truly what to do. I don’t do windows or foot rubs though.
The senior online editor oversees a team of producers that works on sports and breaking news, creates projects of all kinds and works to expand our local neighborhood efforts. There isn’t much “what’s an RSS feed?” going on here in Orlando. This is a Kool-Aid slurpin’ newsroom.
