    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. AP is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer.
