    Oversees recruiting coverage for The Clarion-Ledger and the Hattiesburg American. Responsible for building The Clarion-Ledger and Hattiesburg American recruiting brands on social media. Will help update The Clarion-Ledger and Hattiesburg American sports websites and will continue to build our digital programming. Candidate needs to have eye for telling unique enterprise and ability to connect with readers digitally as well as through print. Background covering major college sports a plus. Reporter will assist on college football live event coverage during the season. Candidates need to be comfortable conveying information through video and radio.


    Can't say enough good things about Zack and what he's doing at the C-L. I imagine you'll be covering recruiting for Ole Miss and Mississippi State as well as high school recruiting throughout the state. A lot of responsibility.

    Whoever gets this job will have a tough act to follow in John Talty, who left last month for AL.com. He was outstanding in that job.

    In addition to high schools, you'll have to keep up with a pretty talent-rich junior college system as well. The C-L has beat writers for Ole MIss & State (and uses the Hattiesburg American for Southern Miss coverage), so you'd have some help there.

    In our little corner of the state, we hear they've got a preferred candidate for this in hand, shall we say.

    However ... they're presumably going to need to hire a prep writer before the fall to replace a(nother) guy who left for AL.com, so it would be a chance to preemptively get your resume on the SE's desk.

    Edit: I see the C-L preps gig was entered on the Jobs board while I was writing the above post. So there you go.

    So is this a good job? Have they made the hire or is that just scuttlebutt?
