Sports Reporter/Editor

Category: 
Editorial
Position: 
Sports Reporter/Editor
Company: 
Seguin Gazette
Email: 
Jeff.Fowler@seguingazette.com
Location: 
Seguin, Texas

The Seguin Gazette, an award-winning daily publication in the heart of South Central Texas, is looking for a talented and versatile sports reporter/editor. 

 

The sports editor in Seguin is a high-profile member of our staff. He or she covers three school districts, four high schools and Texas Lutheran University. The position lays out not only the sports pages, but also builds the full product in the absence of the managing editor. It requires a high-energy individual who is capable of switching gears on the fly. We’re a small staff, so while mainly responsible for sports, this position is also an integral part of our news team. Applicants will be expected to shoot photos, layout our daily sports page and make effective use of various social media platforms. Experience with Adobe InDesign is preferred. 

 

Seguin is a quirky and historic city of just over 30,000. Only 30 minutes from San Antonio and an hour from Austin, this is a rapidly expanding community built along the banks of the Guadalupe River and located in one of the nation’s fastest growing counties. 

 

A part of Southern Newspapers, Incorporated, which operates 15 other papers — including the Galveston County Daily News and our nearby sister paper The New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung, the Seguin Gazette offers market competitive wages and a full range of benefits. In addition to our daily paper, the Gazette also publishes a bi-monthly magazine and a wide variety of glossy products — including "Gameday," our annual high school football preview magazine. 

 

Contact Publisher Jeff Fowler at jeff.fowler@seguingazette.com or Managing Editor Travis Webb at travis.webb@seguingazette.com to apply. Please include a cover letter, clips and portfolio work with your resume.

The assistant managing editor at The Facts, a 14,000 circulation daily and winner of Texas APME Newspaper of the Year three years running, is seeking someone who can make us even better. This position oversees nightly production of the newspaper, contributed editorials, assists with social media and has a valuable voice in how the newsroom operates.

The person also needs to be an adept headline writer and proofreader, and a copy editor who doesn't just fix grammar and punctuation, but also can make stories better.

The right candidate will be professional, with previous newspaper experience, and understand the importance of a "local first" community philosophy and of hitting deadline.

This is a salaried position, and night and weekend work will be required. We know we are asking a lot, and we have budgeted a salary to bring in the right person to meet our expectations.

If you believe you are the person who can elevate our newspaper and employees as part of a leadership team with a history of success, send a letter of interest, resume and at least a half-dozen design samples to Managing Editor Michael Morris at michael.morris@thefacts.com. No phone calls please; any questions should be directed to email.
