Sports Copy Editor, Naples Daily News

Discussion in 'Journalism Jobs' started by Guybehindtheguy, Sep 8, 2006.

  1. The Naples Daily News is accepting applications for sports copy
    editors/page designers. The 60,000-plus daily was a Top 10 APSE Daily
    in 2004.
    We cover the Dolphins and Bucs, Big Three and others in college
    football, two local professional tournaments in a heavy golf market,
    a local ECHL hockey team that draws over 6,000 a night, Red Sox and
    Twins spring training, a local college, plus 10 high schools.
    We are currently transitioning our pagination system to InDesign.
    Experience preferred but not required. Our section already is
    strong, and we want to make it stronger.
    We are one of the most progressive papers in the country when it
    comes to multimedia, including audio and video of local sports, a
    local "vodcast'' newscast, and a high school sports TV show.
    We're located in a growing market on the Gulf Coast, just south of
    Fort Myers and straight across the state from the Miami/Fort
    Lauderdale area.
    If interested, please e-mail Sports Editor Greg Hardwig at
    gshardwig@naplesnews.com or mail a resume and/or copies of your work
    to my attention at Naples Daily News, 1075 Central Ave., Naples, FL,

    Straight across the state from Miami/Fort Lauderdale?

    How far to Tahoe?

    Good paper that always churns out good copy. Reads like a big-time paper come spring training.

    Guy, I thought you guys had a universal desk down there?

    Wow, that's cryptic. Did someone get murdered during an interview or something? Or at least run off with the editor's wife?
  7. What this means is the universal desk is always a losing situation.

    Sports always gets screwed first, and then often. Deadlines moved up so you can't get the late games in.
