Good morning, Lakeland. Editor Kaylee here. Since LALtoday launched in 2018, it has been both an honor + a privilege to share parts of Lakeland’s grand and growing story with you all — my fellow Lakelanders. 

Like most of you, this new year is bringing in some new changes for me, including a new role at 6AM City (LALtoday’s parent company) as a Senior Editor — a position that includes supporting the incredible teams both at LALtoday + other 6AM City’s sister cities (GVLtoday, AVLtoday, COLAtoday, CHStoday, NOOGAtoday, RALtoday, and NASHtoday). 

So, we’re looking to fill my job as Editor of LALtoday with a locally-based multimedia storyteller who’s fired up about all things Lakeland. It’s a fast-paced, exciting job that includes both newsletter creation and our social media. Oh, and you’ll have the best co-editor ever – Katelyn Schur

You might be a good fit if –

  • You know Lakeland like the back of your hand, from current city commission meeting topics to the buzziest restaurant openings.
  • You’re engaged on social media, and always ready to try new things.
  • You’re excited to dig into topics ranging from civic and development to food + bev, history, and the great outdoors.
  • You love to write. You’ll be doing a lot of it.
  • You’re a team player and you see feedback as a gift.
  • You think on your feet and work fast, but diligently.

You’ll get more details about the job here, but I wanted to share the top five things I’ve loved about being a LALtoday Editor –
