    Sports Copy Editor/Page Designer We’re looking for an experienced sports copy editor for our daily newspaper and website in Virginia's beautiful Shenandoah Valley.

    The ideal candidate will be a strong designer and copy editor, able to improve stories, handle the wires and develop attractive pages on deadline. While we have a universal desk, we need a key sports person who can juggle late box scores, make sense of local game stories and work with the sports staff to make deadlines and improve coverage.

    Our universal desk editors use QuarkXpress and Baseview's NewsEditPro IQue on Macintosh. They manage Web content using Saxotech's content management system.

    Our area is an outdoor enthusiast's dream. Our market stretches from the Blue Ridge Mountains to the George Washington National Forest. Our town is a growing tourism destination with bustling downtown streets lined with Victorian architecture. We have an impressive list of downtown entertainment venues with many others only a short drive away. Situated as we are amid a primarily rural area, we also offer a low cost of living and easy driving access to Charlottesville, Roanoke, Richmond and Washington, D.C.

    As part of Gannett, we’re not only part of the nation’s biggest newspaper company, but we’re on the cutting edge of pioneering efforts to reshape the local news business for a new era. Our print circulation is 18,000 daily and 21,000 Sunday. Our site serves up about 1.8 million page views a month, making us far and away the region's most used news site according to Alexa.com. We offer competitive pay and an excellent benefits package.

    To apply for this position send, without delay, a letter, resume and 10-12 work samples to copyjob@newsleader.com or via snail mail to David Fritz, executive editor, The News Leader, P.O. Box 59, Staunton, VA 24402-0059. (Overnights to 11 N. Central Ave., Staunton, VA 24401). We value diversity.
