    The Rocky Mount (N.C.) Telegram, an award-winning daily, seeks a talented, versatile sports journalist for its sports staff.

    The successful candidate will be able to break news, write compelling features, copy edit and design.

    The person we hire will be detail-oriented and ambitious with a commitment to accuracy. Must be able to work efficiently on deadline.

    We cover 10 area high schools, a local Division III college and occasionally the Atlantic Coast Conference, specifically Duke, North Carolina and North Carolina State.

    Experience with multimedia is necessary, and experience with Adobe InDesign is a plus. Candidates must have a bachelor's degree from an accredited four-year institution, as well as a rock-solid understanding of grammar and AP style.

    Recent alumni currently work at USA Today, The Raleigh News and Observer, Charlotte Magazine, The Pittsburgh Post Gazette,Scout.com and the Toledo Blade, among others.

    If interested, send an email with “sports writer opening” as the subject, as well as your resume, cover letter and up to five clips to Sports Editor Jessie H. Nunery at jhnunery@rmtelegram.com.

    We'll move quickly on this one.

    Our latest departure is heading to a Division I basketball beat.

    I'm the guy leaving. Can't announce where I'm headed yet, but I am more than happy to answer any questions about this job. You will be working with two outstanding guys in the sports department and several amazing people across the entire newsroom.

    And I'm the other writer on staff. I joined a couple months ago, so I'm still learning my way around. Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions: ejoyce@rmtelegram.com

    This place has been such a blast for me so far.
