    The Oregonian/OregonLive seeks a beat reporter to cover the Oregon Ducks, with an emphasis on UO football. This is a challenging, fast-paced job covering a high-interest topic in our state and beyond. We expect our beat reporter to break news, generate strong enterprise stories, write quickly and accurately on deadline, and engage with readers both on OregonLive and social media channels. Our reporter should be comfortable shooting photos and video. We are looking for a self-starter, someone with excellent communication and time-management skills. Our reporter should have a craving to be the foremost expert and information source for Oregon Ducks news.

    This job requires night and weekend work, as well as frequent travel, both to Eugene and to follow the Ducks for road games. We are open to the position being based in Eugene.
