Looked for noble journalist (6)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

peered

Here is my best explanation:

'looked' is the definition.

(peering is a kind of looking)

'noble journalist' is the subsidiary indication.

'noble' becomes 'peer' (peer is a kind of noble).

'journalist' becomes 'ed' (short for editor).

'peer'+'ed'='peered'

'for' is the link.

(Other definitions for peered that I've seen before include "Looked searchingly" and "Looked closely".)
