    The sports department is looking for a highly-organized individual with solid interpersonal skills to lead the content side of its operation.

    This individual's duties would include, but are not limited to, scheduling and planning, working directly with reporters, coordinating with visual departments, getting first reads on stories, updating the budget and overseeing the transition from the day to night operation.

    This person needs to embrace the concept of a multi-media newsroom, making sure breaking news gets to the Web first, that blogs are consistent, and that supporting audio/video packages are developed to enhance print packages. The ASE also must recognize the importance of non-narrative storytelling and how to make it happen.

    The job requires a high level of editing, planning and knowledge of specific beats - both local and national - and that visually-driven local/national centerpiece enterprise happens every day. Equally important is a positive attitude and the desire to make this section, which ranked first in the state for daily sports sections in the under-175,000 circulation category, the very best it can be.

    Scripps Treasure Coast Newspapers is located on the east central coast of Florida and has operations in three counties - Martin, St. Lucie and Indian River. The area is home to four major-league spring-training sites - Dodgers (Vero Beach), Mets (Port St. Lucie), Marlins and Cardinals (Jupiter) - while golf and outdoors/water activities are equally important to the paper's 100,000 daily and 115,000 Sunday subscribers. This is a salaried position, and the ASE would report directly to the sports editor. Prior management experience preferred, but those who meet the above qualifications will be considered.

    This would be a good job for an up-and-comer who is looking to move into a management position. Hours aren't great, but then again, whose are in sports? Pay probably won't be great, they're still paying on the scale of three 30K circ papers. Very expensive place to live. But Mike Graham can't be beat as a boss.

    I also understand there may be another opening soon in this department for a staffer.

    So a young family of four can expect to live in a box?

    I thought this was a 100K circulation newspaper?
    If they're paying like a 30K newspaper, in that part of the country, that will be an in-house hire.

    Mike's a good guy, and the area has its advantages, but the paper is structured more like individual papers (with related salaries) than a regional power.

    They do have a main office for the papers (as well as a centralized copy desk, news and sports).
