    The Madisonville Meteor, an award-winning weekly newspaper just 40 miles from College Station, is looking for a sports and education reporter who can take our local coverage to the next level.

    The position is part of a two-person newsroom team and is responsible for all coverage of Madisonville and North Zulch ISD, including sports and education news. Madisonville is home to the Class 4A Mustangs, a program competitive in several sports with a number of athletes reaching UIL state evens in recent years. The Mustangs reached the football playoffs two of the last three seasons. North Zulch does not have a football team, but is competitive in several other sports, winning the district in girls basketball and reaching the state cross country meet last season.

    In addition to education beat stories, we expect to cover everything from the big Friday night games to youth sports and the outdoors. We’re looking for someone who can take readers inside the game with a fresh perspective while also delivering interesting stories on the players, coaches and schools that our readers won’t find anywhere else.

    Sports writing and photography experience required. Knowledge of AP style is a must.

    We offer a competitive starting salary and benefits including health insurance and paid time off. the Madisonville Meteor is part of Granite Publications, a group of Texas community newspapers that prefers to promote from within. If you meet the above qualifications and are ready for the challenge, please email your resume, cover letter and salary requirements to jobs@granitepublications.com.
