    The Daily News in Longview, Washington, seeks a talented sports journalist to complete a four-person staff.

    Our area's prep sports scene is rich in history, intense in rivalry and consistently produces state playoff teams in all three seasons. We place a high value on writing about the people who make the games so interesting. The ideal candidate has a firm grasp of AP style, the ability to write clear, concise stories on tight deadlines, the ability to develop news reports on your own initiative and without direction, experience using multimedia platforms, and the news judgment necessary to determine what does or does not make a story. The right person will be able to find the news on the local sports beats as well as write features, columns, and game stories. Must have daily deadline experience and clips that show a wide range of sports coverage as well as story forms: beat, features, and enterprise.

    This position requires setting priorities and building contacts within the sports community. Experience with newspaper design, layout, photography, and video would be a plus. The aptitude and innovation for creating content for the Web and using multimedia platforms is strongly desired. Reliable transportation and the willingness to work evenings and weekends are required in order to cover games throughout the year. Applicants should have sports writing experience and a bachelor's degree.

    We are a drug-free workplace and all applicants considered for employment must pass a post-offer drug screen and background check prior to commencing employment. This position requires proof of insurance and a valid driver's license.

    As part of Lee Enterprises, The Daily News offers a full benefits package along with a professional and comfortable work environment. To learn more about Lee Enterprises and to apply for this position, please log onto http://www.lee.net/careers. EOE
