We want a big thinker who can play a prominent role in shaping our digital future. Louisville is the largest city in Kentucky and offers a very livable, affordable and fun vibe -- great restaurants, terrific parks, a vibrant night life, rich history and a growing roster of bourbon distilleries. There's also a little horse race the first Saturday of every May that affords us to reach digital readers around the world. But trust us, we are so much more than the Kentucky Derby. We're seeking someone with 5-plus years of digital leadership experience and a burning desire to grow as a leader in a very competitive and collaborative newsroom.
