    Golf.com is seeking a producer. The person hired for this position would produce articles, photo galleries, sections fronts, and special sections for all areas of the site, including tour news, instruction, equipment and travel. The producer would also help to update the homepage with breaking news and service content. In addition to working with original content and wire news, the producer would help translate content from Sports Illustrated and Golf Magazine to the web.


    - Updating the homepage and subsections of the site with breaking news and service content. Note: The jobs will include some nights and weekends, especially during the PGA Tour tournament season.

    - Creating online components to supplement magazine content, as well as some original features, and producing magazine articles for online use.

    - Writing and editing of headlines, subheads, captions and blurbs.

    - Photo production for display images and galleries.

    - Some story editing, for staff and wire copy.


    - College degree, preferably in journalism or a related field.

    - Experience working for a publication or Web site is strongly preferred, and experience in sports or golf journalism is a plus, but recent graduates with the right skills will be considered.

    - Sound news judgment and an ability to meet deadlines.

    - Familiarity with Web production systems.

    - Golf knowledge is required. The ideal candidate would be both a fan and a golfer.

    - Solid computer skills, including at least a basic knowledge of HTML and Photoshop. More advanced Web skills, including audio and video production, would be in the candidate’s favor.

    Please apply using the following link.

    Where is the job located? (Should be in the thread title: Producer for Golf.com, Podunk, Ill.)

    And why is there a poll?

    I think it's a great opportunity, unless you're not interested in leaving a dying medium for a thriving one.

    Who goes to/uses this site for golf news? It would be frustrating to work on some seeming new-media staff that has such little relevance.
