    The News & Observer has an opening for a high school sports editor with responsibility for assigning free-lance sports reporters and community sports editors on daily and long-term high school stories, brainstorming ideas for enterprise and driving content online.

    It will take a leader to fill this position, someone with original ideas, the ability to handle print and digital journalism with imagination and the ability to envision and deliver special stories that readers will always remember.

    The high school editor helps reporters set agendas for their beats, creating and executing coverage plans and coordinating with the editors from the photo, the community, metro, online and print staffs. We want an editor who can shape a story with a reporter while using all the digital tools available.

    We ask reporters to break news online first and develop stories throughout the day, into print and beyond.

    Some writing, mostly notebooks and features and the occasional column. Game coverage is typically handled by the community reporters and freelancers.

    Is the salary above 30K. I would be moving from Midwest, but don't want to waste anybody's time if salary is under 30K.

    I would hope so. It's a metro paper that covers a fairly wide region.

    I'm sure the salary's higher than that. Probably 40-45K, pure speculating?
