A managing Editor is a senior member of a publication's management team. The Managing Editor (ME) reports directly to the Editor In Chief and oversees all aspects of the newspaper.
In the United States, a managing editor oversees and coordinates the publication's editorial activities. The position is generally the second highest in rank (after the editor-in-chief). The Managing Editor can hire, fire or promote staff members. Other responsibilities include creating and enforcing deadlines. Most Section Editors will report to the Managing Editor. The ME must enforce policies set by the Editor In Chief. It is their job to approve stories for print or final copy. On matters of controversy, the ME decides wether or not to run controversial pieces.
The title also applies to the evening televised newscasts, such as those on ABC, CNN, CBS, NBC and the FOX News Channel. The anchors of these newscasts also work as the managing editor of their newscasts. Responsibilities vary in different companies.
