Who is news editor

A news editor curates and reviews content by other journalists to be published online, in newspapers or other forms of print media. Their job duties including editing, proofreading, reaching out to journalists for stories, organizing a team of writers and possibly creating their own original content. It is important for editors to have strong organizational abilities as well as impeccable written communication skills because they’re generally responsible for many different articles or pieces at once, particularly if they hold a senior position. Editors may also need to verify facts provided by their writers, requiring them to have the same research and interviewing skills as journalists. The following chart gives an overview of news editing.
