    Seeking an experienced, versatile copy editor to join our Delivery Desk. The ideal candidate will be someone who can improve stories and turn out high-quality pages for print and work with our content management system to present timely, layered information for our Web readers.
    While our Delivery Desk spans news, sports and features, we are looking for someone with strong sports experience to take the lead in this area.
    The News Leader and www.newsleader.com are not waiting for the future of newspapers, we're helping invent it. This is a key role in our restructured Information Center operation.
    While we will entertain select entry-level applicants with considerable college newspaper and daily newspaper internship experience, we consider this the ideal position for someone now on a small daily or large weekly newspaper looking to move up into a successful farm team that's part of a larger organization.
    Our area is an outdoor enthusiast's dream. Our market stretches from the Blue Ridge Mountains to the George Washington National Forest. Hiking, mountain biking, camping and fishing opportunities abound. Our town is a growing tourism destination with bustling downtown streets lined with Victorian architecture. Situated as we are amid a primarily rural area, we also offer a low cost of living and easy driving access to Charlottesville, Roanoke, Richmond and Washington, D.C.
    Newsleader.com records more than 1.5 million page views each month, logging about 100,000 monthly unique visitors. Our print circulation is about 18,000 daily and 21,000 Sunday.
    To apply for this position send, without delay, a letter, resume and 10-12 work samples to: David Fritz, executive editor, The News Leader, P.O. Box 59, Staunton, VA 24402-0059. (Overnights to 11 N. Central Ave., Staunton, VA 24401). You may also send to newsjobs@newsleader.com. We are a Gannett Newspaper and we value diversity.
