"Writing is a very solitary life. The addition of a social outlet that you can turn on and off, not to mention participate in in your underwear, is pretty life-changing for some people. You can be part of a rich literary community no matter where you live. You can chat with your heroes about their heroes, or about their new nail color. I just think it’s all pretty great."
"In addition to leading WNYC’s social media presence, the Social Media Editor will work to build audience, increase loyalty and drive engagement with WNYC’s content. S/he will coordinate social activity with the WNYC newsroom and WNYC-produced local and national shows, WQXR and The Greene Space to magnify WNYC’s social profile and those of other NYPR brands and personalities and will share best practices with other NYPR brands and work. The Social Media Editor is responsible for delivering content that is viable, sustainable and meets the mission and goals of WNYC and the promise to readers and listeners. S/he will be part of the effort to make WNYC’s digital content a necessary and transformative daily experience as part of the most inclusive gathering place in news media."
