SPORTS EDITOR – Cordell Beacon

 

TRUST THE PROCESS

Sports are in full swing and we have and it's not the best time to get started, but that's what we need to do at one of our weekly papers in Oklahoma.

Never been a sports editor before? We're more than willing to pitch in and help train you.  We work hard at local sports in our company because we think it's one of the most important things we do -- involving young people and their families in the paper every day. It all contributes to the growth of our product. 

But, first and foremost, covering local sports also is tons of fun and incredibly rewarding. We love doing it, and our new Sports Editor needs to love it, too.

The Cordell Beacon is a great place to boost a career with Wesner Publications, with publications across Oklahoma, Texas and New Mexico.

Computer assisted reporting skills, social media and digital savvy, and ability to craft information for distribution across multiple platforms are assets in applying for this position. Educational background in news-related fields is a must. We serve our readers with investigative and enterprise reporting, strong local features, profiles and day to day news that they can’t get anywhere else. We do it well, are recognized for excellence and we never rest on our laurels. If interested submit a cover letter, resume and 2 samples of clippings via e-mail to our Group Publisher, Eric Warsinskey at Eric@WesnerCo.com. The perfect applicant will be excited about the future of newspaper in print, online and through digital media. This is not your average Sports Editor position as it could very quickly lead to advancement and will most certainly lead to growth. We are looking to hire quickly as we have an immediate opening for an editor within our newsroom.

Reporter
Company: 
Colorado County Citizen

Location: 
Coumbus, Texas

The Colorado County Citizen is looking to add a talented, experienced reporter to our editorial department.

 

The ideal candidate has experience covering city and county government meetings, school board, local school sports of all kinds, and breaking news. Forty percent of this position is high school sports coverage so we're looking for someone who is very strong in this area. A firm grasp of AP style is mandatory. Developing relationships and being part of the community is a must. Given the nature of the business, this position does require frequent evening or weekend hours.

 

Responsibilities will include writing, taking photos for the paper, posting content online and on all platforms of social media. Being able to create and produce both live and edited mobile videos is a big plus. Our goal is to create a strong digital culture while still sticking to our core product – the print edition. The print edition remains our top priority and we focus on local news, human interest stories, and engaging our readers.

 

The Citizen offers benefits including paid vacation after one year, and, after 60 days, holiday and personal leave, life, health, dental and vision insurance.

 

We are a weekly paper that publishes a Wednesday edition. We’ve served Colorado County since 1857.

 

Applicants should email resumes and writing samples to vince@coloradocountycitizen.com.
