    Full-time sports agate editor

    The Dallas Morning News has an opening for a full-time agate editor for its award-winning SportsDay section.

    Leading candidates will have good organizational skills, exhibit poise under extreme deadline pressure and be good collaborators. They should have a broad range of sports knowledge and good command of language and AP style. Candidates should be aspiring copy editors with the ability to grow into that role.

    Leading candidates also may have an online background or experience working with a digital news operation. A willingness to embrace print/web integration is a must.

    The schedule will require night and weekend work. At least two years of professional newspaper experience is preferred.

    Please send your resumes to dmnjobs@dallasnews.com

    This isn't your Dave Smith's DMN...

    Being somewhat close to this disaster of a joint, this will be an eye-opening underpay in terms of salary.

    DMN, the once-Encyclopedia Britannica of sports sections where newspaper beancounters have demonstrated that if they can turn this into a shadow of its former self, your job is in great peril too.

    Unless this is your first job out of college or a step up from a very small newspaper, run for the hills before applying for this one!

    Do they still sell dirt-cheap burritos from carts on the street there?

    Definitely not. What a shame. Another gold-standard job gone to dust.

    filled it from within and moved someone else over. apparently there's a lot of part-time help over there right now.

    I said it last time and I'll say it again: The mere fact the DMN has to advertise for applicants shows how far that paper has fallen.
  11. But this is for an agate editor position, not for a Cowboys beat writer or a deputy sports editor position.

    I rest my case.
