    Saw this one on journalismjobs...any positives? I wonder if it's really called "Daily Newspaper." And is it just me, or does it look bad when the contact person has a Yahoo e-mail instead of a newspaper e-mail? OK, here's the posting, from May 6:

    Company: Daily newspaper
    Position: Sports reporter +
    Location: Eastern Nebraska, Nebraska
    Job Status: Full-time
    Salary: $20,000 to $25,000
    Ad Expires: June 10, 2008
    Job ID: 639483


    Description:
    A small Midwest daily is seeking a sports reporter who also has page design/editing skills and some photo abilities. We are a locally focused sports operation.

    The succesful candidate will be a well-organized, self-starter who is broadly versed in all areas of prep sports coverage. On the page-design side, you will need Quark Xpress and Photoshop proficiency. A degree in journalism is desirable but not mandatory. Experience could be substituted.

    The small city location of this position is ideal for its relaxed lifestyle. Larger cities are within easy reach.

    This position could lead quickly to greater opportunities if you have the skills and ambition.

    A reliable vehicle, insurance and valid driver's license are required as is a post-offer, prehire drug test.

    An excellent benefits package includes vacation, medical, dental, 401(K) and more.
    Apply by e-mail to newshunt@yahoo.com with cover letter, resume and 3-4 work samples attached (PDFs are best). Regional candidates preferred.

    Sports reporter +? Is that like a VCR +?

    Anyway, daily papers in Eastern Nebraska (and I'll stretch the geography a bit, using Highway 81 as the dividing line):

    Beatrice: Beatrice Daily Sun
    Columbus: Columbus Daily Telegraph
    Fremont: Fremont Tribune
    Lincoln: Lincoln Journal Star
    Nebraska City: Nebraska City News-Press
    Norfolk: Norfolk Daily News
    Omaha: Omaha World-Herald
    York: York News-Times

    Yes. Though I would be more turned off by the 20-25k pay, to be honest.
