    Hi all,

    We've got an opening for a college sports writer at the Dallas Morning News. Link/description are below. Please apply through the link, but feel free to e-mail me if you have any questions, too: sbell@dallasnews.com.



    The Dallas Morning News seeks a dynamic, self-motivated reporter to join its college sports staff. The ideal candidate will be a proven digital journalist who is equally adept at spot news, analysis and enterprise. The person chosen for this role will be responsible for:

    • Reporting and producing content for all digital platforms related to their coverage area, including breaking news, features, and taking photos/video.
    • Promoting content and reporting on social media channels.
    • Developing exclusive sources and storylines.
    • Building digital stories with clickable headlines that include links, tags, multimedia and SEO.
    • Analyzing traffic metrics and social media metrics to enhance decision-making on what type of content to produce and when.
    • Finding compelling stories that haven't been covered nationally or locally.
    • Filling in whenever and wherever called upon, and having the ability to write about any number of subjects.

    The candidate should possess strong news judgment and excellent verbal and analytic skills; must have the ability to work all stories under pressure with assigned deadlines; must have ability to interact productively and enthusiastically with fellow employees and all levels of management.

    This job requires a flexible work schedule, including nights, deep nights, weekends and holidays. Travel will be involved.

    Nothing new to report. Pretty overwhelming response coupled with the fact that our current college writer will be staying on through March Madness meant we wouldn't have the same sense of urgency that we might have in a normal situation. I'd expect things to move forward in the next week or two.
