Sports editor -- Loredo (Texas) Morning Times

Discussion in 'Journalism Jobs' started by boundforboston, Aug 6, 2013.

  1. The Laredo Morning Times is looking for a sports leader who lives and breathes athletics. Laredo, Texas is a growing and engaged fitness community. This person would cover a diverse sports town that includes professional soccer, minor league baseball, arena football, university athletics and high school sports, just to name a few. The right candidate must have a thorough knowledge of sports, be organized, be able to write compelling sports stories in AP style and produce special sports sections. She or he would be responsible for daily sports coverage and production of the sports pages. He or she will also manage the sports staff and be a team motivator. The Sports Editor must also be a sports social media machine. If this job description sounds more like a great adventure for you, then send me your resume. Job offers are contingent on passing a drug test. Send your resume and clips to Managing Editor Mary Nell Sanchez (mnsanchez@lmtonline.com). No phone calls please. LMT is an equal opportunity employer.

    Curious what happened to the previous guy. Good person, easy to work with. Anyone know?

    I can speculate one of three things may have happened:
    1. He woke up one morning and said "Oh my gosh it's 108 degrees right now, and it's just 10 a.m. I need to get the hell out of here."
    2. He woke up one morning and said "Oh my gosh, I've been shot my Mexican druglords. I need to get out of here."
    3. He woke up one morning and said "Oh my gosh, I need a to make more money and find an industry that isn't dying."

    Of the three, I'm going with No. 2 as the most likely.

    Good person, maybe. Easy to work with? He ran off five people in his year and a half as SE, including a couple of talented individuals who ended up at bigger papers. He plays favorites.

    Unless we're talking different people.

    The young guy who was there for what seemed like less than a year?

    Is Laredo now pronounced Loredo, or is Laredo now just spelled Loredo?

    Is this part of the editing test?
