    The Philadelphia Daily News is looking for an assistant sports editor to join our leadership team.

    You can invent new ways to make the best of print and online work together in a highly competitive media market. You are creative and energetic, have a strong understanding of convergence between print and online, and have excellent communication and technical skills. You have previous journalism experience and a knowledge of Web production.

    Responsibilities include an assignment editor role in supervising reporters in a specific coverage area to be determined by the candidate’s experience level and interests. This involves story planning and development, and front-line editing.

    You also will be the sports department’s primary contact with philly.com, the Web site of both the Daily News and Philadelphia Inquirer. That includes developing new online initiatives, creating online extras to augment and go beyond print coverage, posting breaking news, managing blogs, among other duties.

    To apply, send a resume, cover letter and the work samples/links that best reflect your skills and innovation. In your letter, look ahead six months and tell us what you will have accomplished and what impact you will have had on our coverage.

    We are an Equal Opportunity Employer.

    Would anybody not already located in Philadelphia take this? Good luck finding another job (and moving your shit) when layoffs hit again in four months and you're first to go.

    That's a reality/risk everyone faces right now when it comes to accepting a new job.
