    Position: Assistant sports editor -- New York
    Location: New York, New York

    Salary: Not Specified
    Ad Expires: May 22, 2007
    Job ID: 766835

    The Associated Press seeks an assistant sports editor for its Sports Desk in New York City.

    The assistant sports editor operates much like a news editor, helping to oversee the daily report, directing coverage, assigning stories, editing copy and working with writers and making sure stories are developed across all platforms.

    This editor manages nightside, given the crush of game copy and the inevitability of breaking sports news, and the NFL report on Sundays. Other responsibilities include assigning and shaping the overnight report, guiding bureaus on follow-up stories for the next day, and coordinating with Photos, Multimedia, Graphics and Broadcast.

    JOB REQUIREMENTS: The ideal candidate must have excellent news and editing skills, the ability to handle fast-breaking stories and knowledge of and interest in a full range of sports, nationally and internationally. This applicant needs to be able to work with writers, identify and assign stories, and develop projects with bureaus.

    This person must be capable of supervising and directing special events on site or from the office.

    Candidates must be familiar with and able to work with multimedia elements, and must have ability and desire to work with Graphics, Broadcast, Photos and Online Video to ensure proper packaging of stories.

    For consideration, e-mail a cover letter, resume and work samples to: 8127996@ap.contacthr.com

    AP is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer.

    That job has been advertised before -- twice. November and February. Guess they aren't getting any candidates.

    I know this job has been advertised before (and not filled before, obviously), but if it were in a different place, I think it would be interesting. I doubt AP is going away anytime soon.

    I'm guessing the pay wouldn't be worth is, mainly cause it IS NYC.

    Nobody left. Dude just withered away. You can find his bones still sitting at the desk. If you turn on the ceiling fan, it still sounds like he's typing ...

    No wonder the job don't got candidates. If you email them your email will bounce back.
