    The Standard-Examiner, located in the outdoor mecca of beautiful Ogden, Utah, is seeking a multimedia savvy editor to head up our Sports and Recreation Team. We need a versatile editor who is hands-on with pagination and design skills, as well as content editing, story development and scheduling.

    -- Manage 12-15 correspondents

    -- Build a daily budget of stories for each day

    -- Paginate

    -- Manage website construction of sports content.

    The editor should have experience with InDesign, InCopy and Photoshop, and the ability to learn new software and a new content management system.
