    JournalismJobs.com - Job Listing - Sports Editor

    The Alexander City Outlook, a 3,200-circulation five-day daily newspaper located in Central Alabama on the shores of beautiful Lake Martin is seeking a sports editor to transform our sports pages from good to great.

    We are seeking a person driven to write compelling stories on deadline on multiple platforms and to produce a quality sports section with balanced and in-depth coverage. We cover five high schools, a community college and a wide range of outdoor and recreational sports. A person who can work independently, with great organizational and time-management skills will flourish here.

    The ideal candidate would possess a bachelor's degree in journalism or related field, or equivalent experience, knowledge of AP style and libel law, good photography skills and knowledge of Photoshop and the entire Adobe Creative Suite, especially InDesign, to design the sports section. Experience recruiting and developing stringers would be a plus.

    We are an equal opportunity employer offering our employees a chance to flourish, a team atmosphere that thrives of journalism excellence, competitive pay and great benefits.

    Interested candidates should email resumes, writing samples and any multimedia examples links to mitch.sneed@alexcityoutlook.com.
  2. I don't know anything about this job specifically, but Mitch Sneed is really good people. He runs a first class newsroom and is great to work for. Alex City seems like a nice little town about halfway between Birmingham and Montgomery. If the lake is your scene and you want to work for a pro, this would be a good opportunity.

    Let me echo what Rico said about Mitch. Good dude. Easy going, but takes the job seriously. A young writer could learn a lot from him.
