Quad City Times - Preps reporter

    The Quad-City Times (51,000 daily, 68,000 Sunday), part of the Lee Enterprises chain, is seeking a multipurpose sports journalist who has solid reporting skills and can report for the print paper and the Web.

    We are seeking a sports reporter who will devote most of his or her time to covering local high school sports. This is an area in which we place heavy emphasis and consider some of our most important beats. High school teams in the area routinely compete, and win, in state championships in Illinois and Iowa, so our readers expect superior coverage.

    The ideal candidate for this job needs to be able to report for our print newspaper and our ever-growing qcvarsity.com site. Online and multimedia knowledge is required. This reporter also must have a hunger for enterprise journalism and exploring new ways of telling stories, whether it is online or in print.

    We are in a diverse, two-state, sports-oriented metro area of about 400,000 people that is three hours from the nearest major league sports city but within five hours of six of them. We are just 50 miles from the University of Iowa, have minor-league franchises in several sports and are home to a PGA tournament and the largest non-marathon road race in the Midwest.

    Qualified candidates should have a bachelor's degree and possibly some daily newspaper experience. Send resume, clips and references to sports editor Don Doxsie at ddoxsie@qctimes.com.

    Damn...sorry for the db. Got an e-mail today saying they're looking for someone, so I'd imagine it's not frozen.

    Several years ago it was one of the lowest quality papers I'd ever seen for its circulation size.

    But even if that's still true, a job's a job these days.
