    Anyone want a big big big big big boy job. Welp, here ya go.

    Job Description

    Sports Editor

    From the World Cup to the Olympics to LeBron James’s long and winding road, New York Times readers are captivated by sports coverage. The primary task of the next Sports editor will be to ensure that Times coverage is central to the sports conversation, whether it’s soccer in Europe, free agency in the N.B.A. or corruption at the Olympics. The Sports desk has become an engine of innovation for the newsroom and the next Sports editor must keep that digital momentum. The editor should lead a desk that breaks news, delivers memorable features, lands major investigations and introduces many new readers around the world to Times journalism.

    Candidates should be able to:
    • Present a vision for Sports coverage in an increasingly international and digital New York Times.
    • Conceptualize and execute ambitious investigative projects.
    • Work closely with graphics editors and other visual journalists to produce visually innovative work.
    • Motivate and nurture the careers of journalists of all experience levels.
    This is an excluded position.

    I didn’t see an email address or it even on their jobs board but I did see this posted on Glassdoor. So good luck.

    Hell I’ll take a big boy job. But I’ll say this in these horrific times for our business: at least I got a job.

    Our president says it's the "failing New York Times." He's never lied, right?

    I'll bet they move in someone from another New York Times department. They've done that before, and it seems like the job would be a lot more do-able if you already knew the players and the web/graphics people.

    Definitely not going to say that he doesn't like a rug, but pretty sure the # laid off/retired,took a buyout by the NYT over the last two decades
    is a bit larger than the # hired.
