    Company: The News Journal
    Position: Assistant Sports Editor
    Location: Wilmington, Delaware
    Job Status: Not Specified
    Salary: Not Specified
    Website: http://delawareonline.com/sports

    Description:
    The News Journal, a statewide Gannett-owned daily in Delaware, has an immediate opening for an assistant sports editor. This person serves as the No. 2 in a department that covers all levels of sports in our region – from the Phillies, Eagles and 76ers, to two Division I universities and 60 high schools. The ideal candidate must know sports inside and out, possess strong news judgment and copy editing skills and be able to skillfully meet the demands of digital and social media. Applicants should have experience managing staff and content at a website or daily newpaper. Delaware is a great place to live, just 20 minutes from Philadelphia, 90 minutes from Baltimore and 2 hours from Washington, D.C. and New York City. Delaware beaches are among the best on the East Coast. E-mail resume and clips to Sports Editor Jason Levine at jlevine@delawareonline.com. No phone calls, please.

    Anyone know if this position involves writing and covering events, or is it strictly a management position - editing, layout, etc.?

    There shouldn't be any layout responsibilities given this is a Gannett paper. Beyond that, I don't know.

    Very nasty layoffs recently at the New Journal.

    There's no writing or event coverage with this position as it's currently set up. No layout, either. Essentially you'd be the section's night editor. In addition to the Philadelphia pro sports coverage, The News Journal also dips into Baltimore, particularly for the Ravens. Joe Flacco is a University of Delaware grad, so that's a big deal. You'd also get to work with a pretty talented staff. This paper has won seven APSE writing awards the last two years, while competing in the second-largest circulation class. That includes a first place for breaking news in the most recent contest. The current ASE is leaving for the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

    Is Ledford still the EE there? One of his boys is Chris Schulte, who at last glance was in need of a job.

    Hope those dots don't get connected ...
