    Sports Editor Wanted
    The Emporia Gazette of Emporia, Kansas, has an immediate opening for a sports editor.
    The person must have a passion for community sports and have sports reporting experience. We cover many area high school sports teams as well as cover sports at Emporia State University which is a NCAA Division II school. This is a two person sports staff with stringers.
    This person must have the ability to work productively in a team setting.
    The person must be aggressive and adept at setting priorities and reordering them as needed, particularly under deadline pressure or as circumstances change. The person should have strong editing and writing skills, and experience with Multimedia journalism is a must. We use video, audio, Facebook Twitter, and television to tell our stories.
    We are a Monday through Saturday afternoon paper, 7,000 circulation, covering six counties. Salary based on experience. We offer health benefits, 401(k) and two weeks vacation. Emporia is on the edge of the beautiful Kansas Flint Hills, one hour away from major Kansas cities like Kansas City, Wichita and Topeka.
