    The Los Angeles Times seeks an innovative, experienced sports editor to lead one of the largest and most talented sports departments in the country.
    The job entails overseeing coverage of some of the nation’s most glamorous and closely followed professional franchises and college programs: the Lakers and Dodgers, USC football, UCLA football and basketball, the L.A. Angels, Clippers and MLS Galaxy, among others.
    The successful candidate will have articulated a vision for making The Times’ digital sports report a top destination for readers, and for showcasing the sports department’s signature voices in the digital space.
    Experience as a sports reporter and/or editor are essential. Even more so are fluency in online journalism, a willingness to experiment and the ability to inspire the staff to continue transforming The Times’ sports coverage into a digitally focused report that is among the finest and most-read anywhere.
    Interested parties should contact Director of News Development Tracy Boucher at tracy.boucher@latimes.com.


    I think this is what they call a big-boy or -girl job.

    Yuppers, it's a big-boy job. Or big-girl too. :)

    For all the hacks and slashes the Times has had over the years, it still has a quality sports section IMHO. Good luck to all applicants!

    The LAT might want to include an email address that works.

    I guess that's why they want someone "digitally focused."

    Will be interesting to see if they hire someone well-versed in supervising sports coverage or someone who is purely digitally focused. Or maybe you could find both ... But I bet they hire a first-time sports editor thinking that assures a fresh view.

    This is a no-brainer. The guy running the show 35 miles south can do it all.

    The World Champion actually advertising for this job is all you need to know about the business these days. Instead of, you know, snapping up exactly who it wants.
