    The York (Pa.) Daily Record/Sunday News is seeking an Assistant Sports Editor to join two other managers in leading an award-winning staff of 14 journalists. The staff’s primary areas of local coverage are high school sports (25 area schools), Penn State football and the Atlantic League champion York Revolution.

    The Daily Record/Sunday News has a daily circulation of 55,000 and Sunday circulation of 88,000.

    We are seeking a production-oriented manager to lead us in great work both in print and online. We produce three print sports sections each night (our own and two MediaNews regional sister papers) and we also aggressively update our online sites – www.ydr.com and www.GameTimePA.com (our regional high school sports website). Our assistant sports editor will help to keep us at the leading edge of online, mobile and social-networking coverage and innovation.

    This editor will work night shifts (approximately 4 p.m. to 1 a.m.) and have both weekend days off every other month.

    The ideal candidate will have experience as a copy editor (both deadline stories and enterprise projects) and page designer; will have some experience with web publishing and blogs; will understand and embrace the emerging role of social networking in sports journalism; will have some previous management experience; and will be a great team player and leader who can help us coordinate daily deadlines and big projects that stretch across multiple newsrooms in southcentral Pennsylvania.

    This is a challenging but rewarding sports management position and is a terrific opportunity for someone looking to lead a group of great journalists and implement fresh, innovative ideas in a media environment that sometimes changes by the hour.

    If you have questions or are interested in applying for this job opening, contact Sports Editor Chris Otto at cotto@ydr.com or mail resume and materials to him at York Daily Record/Sunday News, 1891 Loucks Road, York, Pa., 17408. EOE.

    Nuts... if it weren't for the page design I'd try for this job in a second. Good luck to whoever applies.
