The Associated Press Sports Editors recently ranked our digital product as one of the top 10 in the country in our size group.

We want to empower you to tell great stories using words, video, audio, graphics and images.

The right candidate will:

• Be dependable and comfortable multitasking to handle multiple deadlines

• Demonstrate an eye for enterprising angles: Context and analysis are crucial to success in this position

• Offer a track record of breaking news on a beat and helping to drive online subscriptions

• Enjoy collaborating with others to tell bigger stories and tackle bigger issues

• Show an ability to create content beyond the written word

We offer an excellent benefits package, including medical, dental, vision, paid holidays and paid time off. We are an equal opportunity employer.
