    The Detroit News is seeking an assistant sports editor. Experienced editors with excellent news judgment and editing skills and the flexibility to work with an award-winning sports department are encouraged to apply. Our staff covers five major pro teams, two major universities, several mid-major and lower-division universities and more than 200 high schools.

    The successful candidate will work in tandem with the news editor in the production of the daily section as well as working with graphics, design and online to increase The News’ role as the region’s source of sports information.

    We’re looking for creative, energetic candidates who will bring innovative ideas into our coverage areas as we meld our print product with increased online coverage.

    Yes, there was a reconfiguation of revenue share when Gannett took over the Freep and MediaNews took the News, and now the Freep has the Sunday paper.

    Singleton paper. Take it for what it's worth.

    Actually, sad to say, a couple of deaths.

    This position would intrigue me (if I had any qualms about moving back to Michigan). This is a grand opportunity for someone out there. Jump at it.

    No, the deal was the Free Press got Sundays and allowed the News to publish AM instead of PM during the week.

    News already was publishing AM, really.

    Well, the News did add a Saturday edition, I guess, so that's something to hang its hat on.
