Columnist, Denver Post - Calling the next Woody Paige

Discussion in 'Journalism Jobs' started by Victor Smalley, Jul 28, 2006.

  1. The Denver Post (260,000 daily / 725,000 Sunday) is looking for a sports columnist to offer a distinctive voice for an audience passionate about sports.

    The ideal candidate is an outstanding reporter who can also break news and who has the gift of writing. We want this columnist to not only tackle tough issues but write compelling commentary that helps illuminate stories behind the headlines. The new assistant managing editor for sports is Scott Monserud.

    Please direct cover letter, resume and work samples to:

    I just graduated from college but I have two internships. I wrote a column for the student newspaper, so I feel like I'm qualified. What do you guys think?

    Just kidding.

    And here


    I notice the ad doesn't say "previous column experience required."

    Aw, crap. I was about ready to say "you're hired!" and you put those two words at the bottom. Thanks for spoiling all my fun. ;)

    August 4th is pretty fast for a deadline. Think they are just going through the motions of posting the ad?
    Anyone know whether they have a replacement in the works already?

    Maybe, but they also are moving into a new building in early mid-August.

    Where are they moving?
    Why would that be the motivator to close so quickly?

    Essentially, across the street. The Post, Rocky Mountain News and the Denver Newspaper Agency, which runs the JOA, are moving into a new building downtown. And I would suspect having a deadline of August 4 would help not get resumes lost in the transition and also, just a guess here, they probably want to hire quickly because football season is at hand.

    Supposedly, there's a lot of pressure for them to hire a minority...

    They were last time and hired George and now he's gone, so I would say that's an easy conclusion to jump to. Any candidates?
