The Texas Newsroom

  • Statewide Managing Editor

    The Managing Editor serves as the top editor for The Texas Newsroom and manages day-to day operations in collaboration with station newsrooms, leading a regional staff, and directing the statewide newsroom in all capacities with guidance of the TTN Executive Team. While station newsroom managers have direct oversight of station employees and daily coverage, station newsrooms and TTN work in a cooperative spirit to produce increased regional coverage, curate content from around the state, and develop journalists.

    The Managing Editor will work collaboratively with Texas Newsroom partner stations to coordinate resources needed for major breaking news and for stories developed and managed by TTN. This editor will ensure high editorial and ethical standards for content produced through The Texas Newsroom.
