    The Press Democrat, a New York Times Company and Pulitzer Prize winning newspaper, has an immediate opening for an experienced high school sports reporter. This position is our lead high school writer to cover and coordinate print and extensive online content and presentation for 40 high schools in a three-county area of Northern California’s Wine Country. We are looking for someone committed to expanding our online presence and connection to the community. Familiarity with the online world of blogs, Twitter and video, along with skills at developing sources, reporting exclusive news and meeting deadlines are essential.

    Santa Rosa has popped up a few times before on these boards, receiving largely positive reviews each time.

    Great paper to work for. They cover a big area but don't do a lot of in-person coverage outside a small 20-mile radius. All the small school stuff is handled over the phone.

    Because this is the first time I've visited in a couple of weeks and am somewhat out of the loop, please forgive me if I missed something, but does this opening mean the old prep guy got the 49ers gig with the paper?

    What's the time frame for this opening? Is it expected to be filled quickly or will it take some time? Has anyone been contacted yet?
