The Courier Journal, the award-winning news site in Louisville, Kentucky, is seeking a project manager to coordinate daily and long-term assignments with key stakeholders across our operation. This position reports to The Courier Journal’s editor, who also is the site manager for the building, but your work will touch a wide variety of departments, including Sales, Production, Human Resources, Customer Service and, of course, News. You’ll have daily interactions with our building maintenance and security teams, as well as being our designated go-to person on key budget-tracking duties and the occasional regional project at our sister newsrooms in Indiana.
