    The San Francisco Examiner is seeking an experienced sports editor to cover one of the most dynamic sports scenes in the country, from the 49ers to the Giants to the Warriors and beyond. The ideal editor will be determined to make The Examiner's sports section the most compelling part of the paper every day. Qualified candidates must have previous professional writing experience and be able to write breaking news as well as in-depth features on athletes and team personnel. Page design experience (we work on Macs and use InDesign, InCopy and Photoshop) is required. Superb news judgment and a knowledge of Associated Press style is also required. You must be able to work nights and weekends.

    The Examiner is owned by the San Francisco Media Co., which also operates SF Weekly and SF Evergreen.

    I would love to take on this project, and think I'm perfect for it.

    As far as I know, Michael Howerton is directly in charge for hiring this position. Do I have that right?

    It had better pay well, since that's one of the most expensive areas in the country in which to live.

    This is a tough gig. There are no sports staff writers. All AP and freelancers. PM me if you have any questions.

    Um. Wow.
    This should be good. I can't imagine the marriage between Mariotti and San Fran having any hiccups at all...

    Can't wait for the first parent to call him complaining that the Examiner's story cost their kid a scholarship ... :)

    The job notice didn't say anything about leading a staff. Probably because there isn't one to lead.

    They don't really cover prep sports on a regular basis. Or haven't, rather, in a while.
  10. Goes to show that anybody can be redeemed. Wonder how long before he's back on ATH?
