    The Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal, a seven-day-a-week newspaper based in Tupelo, is seeking a high school sports specialist to join our team.
    We have 50-plus high school programs within our circulation footprint, with a core coverage focus on two dozen schools. The successful applicant will be a self-starter, well-organized and fluent in using social media in a sports news context.
    Responsibilities will include reporting and game coverage, but also coordination of coverage with our partner weekly papers.
    Basic desk skills - we’re planning a transition from Quark to InDesign – would be a plus.
    Daily newspaper experience preferred, but will consider the right candidate with strong college experience.
    Applicants are invited to send resumes and 3-5 clips to sports editor John Pitts at john.pitts@journalinc.com
    Please, no phone calls.

    Were I not tied down these days, I wouldn't mind putting the band back together.
