    JournalismJobs.com - Job Listing - Seeking sports editor

    The Light and Champion, a semi-weekly newspaper located in Center, has an immediate opening for a sports editor.

    Center is located in the East Texas Pineywoods and is the county seat of Shelby County.

    The sports editor is part of a three-person editorial team that covers Center, Joaquin, Tenaha, Timpson and Shelbyville sports, all in Shelby County. The sports editor manages a team of stringers that help cover Friday night football games.

    Shelby County is hope to a variety of sports – including outdoors. We’re just miles away from some of the state’s best fishing lakes.

    We produce fresh content daily for both our print editions and our website. We need someone who can crank out top-quality articles covering Shelby County sports and manage a team of stringers who cover surrounding athletic departments. Sports reporting experience and solid photography skills required. Experience managing stringers/other reporters is preferred. Knowledge of AP is a must.

    We’re part of Granite Publications, a family-owned group of 16 community newspapers throughout Texas. We offer a competitive salary, health, vision and dental insurance after 60 days, and look to hire people who can grow into larger roles in our company. Send a resume, samples and letter of interest to jobs@granitepublications.com.
