    Do you loathe clichés – of word AND thought? The Beaumont Enterprise seeks a writing, hands-on sports editor who will lead three reporters' strong, smart and energetic execution of intensely local coverage – minus the clichés – on the field and off, including contributions to news, enterprise and our high-profile sports presence on social media and the web.

    The Beaumont Enterprise, the fifth-largest Hearst newspaper, has groomed journalists – especially in sports – for metro papers all over the country, including sister papers in Houston (90 miles west), San Antonio and San Francisco. The editor was sports editor of award-winning sections in Seattle and San Antonio and assistant sports editor in Dallas and Los Angeles. Our success is noted by the Associated Press Sports Editors. We have had a dozen top-10 APSE mentions in the past three years, including top 10 Sunday and top 20 daily. This is the job you need to get the job you’ll want.

    The ideal candidate will have good communication, organization, leadership, coaching and editing skills; a collaborative management style focused on putting audience first; and a broad vision of what makes great sports content, with the ability to match resources to that vision.

    High school football is the centerpiece of our operation. We frequently run sports stories and features on 1A, and our Friday and Saturday editions are loaded with special high school coverage. High school football games in Southeast Texas can draw close to 10,000 fans. Lamar University is the main university in Beaumont, with resurgent basketball and football programs. This area also produces professional athletes – Jamaal Charles of the Kansas City Chiefs, Jay Bruce of the Cincinnati Reds and Kendrick Perkins of the Oklahoma City Thunder, among others.

    A short note, resume, three of your best clips and a list of references can be emailed to Managing Editor Ashley Sanders at Ashley.Sanders@BeaumontEnterprise.com

    Anyone with insight here? It seems like the previous SE wasn't here very long.
