According to Rob Curley:

In the local news organizations that I’ve been a part of, the online M.E. was someone who knew when stories needed to be posted early (and actually did the vast majority of the writing and posting), knew when stories needed some sort of multimedia, knew when stories needed a live chat with a key source, knew when a story would be better by scanning in some supporting documents, knew when a database would be hugely important in helping to tell a story, knew when a poll or forum would better engage the community for a particular story, knew when to use stories from the newspaper’s archive to help the audience have a better understanding of a story topic, etc. …

And a heck of a lot more too. Read the rest of Rob’s post to get the full picture.
