    The Register-Guard, a 60,000-circulation morning daily, is seeking to hire a lead sports columnist to be the voice of its nationally recognized sports department. We're looking for an independent thinker and self-starter who will offer readers provocative and thoughtful analysis and opinion, and who possesses the writing touch to deliver the human element in both column and feature writing. We're looking for a hard-working team player with a competitive drive who will help define our section by taking a leading role in print, online and social media. Our top priority is local sports, with an emphasis on University of Oregon athletics.

    At least five years of sports-writing experience for a daily newspaper and graduation from a four-year college or university required; experience as a sports columnist strongly helpful, but so is the ability to provide expert, literate, informed opinions on sports.

    Salary range is $1,147.80 – $1,264.50 per week

    The application deadline is Friday, June 28, 2013. To apply submit a letter, resume’, non-returnable clips, and a completed application. The application form can be found at http://projects.registerguard.com/pages/rg-jobs/.

    All application materials can be submitted electronically to rgjob.applications@registerguard.com.

    Alternately, they can be mailed to:

    Sports Columnist
    The Register-Guard
    Human Resources Department
    3500 Chad Drive
    Eugene, OR 97408

    All applicants will receive a response. No telephone inquiries, please.

    Same position as discussed on the other thread? Or position being re-posted? Or a different position?

    I think I saw something about this on another post the other day. Position was open, then frozen, now thawed.

    I was told that the previous post has since been removed to avoid confusion.

    Austin Meek from the Topeka Capital-Journal is finally your winner.

    There's a columnist that hopefully doesn't live up to his name.

    Meek in Topeka... hmmm.

    Wonder if this creates an opening at the C-J.

    Don't be surprised if the C-J replaces Meek from within, then goes after a high schools reporter

    The local UO crackpots turned on predecessor George Schroeder when he had the audacity to blast the school's ridiculous access policies, its paranoid SID department, or when he even mention the NCAA sanctions (handed down after he left).

    Good luck.

    Very solid paper, but with the departure of Rob Mosely to the aforementioned paranoid SID department, with the retirement of veteran Bob Clark and the loss of veteran Curtis Anderson, who took another job in the area, the R-G recently lost three aces off its starting staff.
