    The Rapid City Journal (30,000 circ.) is looking for an enthusiastic leader for its five-person sports department. The ideal candidate will look to take the department beyond bats and balls and box scores, and focus on breaking news and strong, compelling enterprise stories. They need to tap the potential and immediacy of our website and mobile apps; we're looking for fast and accurate updates, interactive blogs, live streaming and chats, and complementary multimedia to enhance our storytelling.

    We're the second-largest paper in the state and we think big, so our next sports editor must walk in with a vision for fresh, bold ideas which can help make us one of the best sports sections in the Midwest. Come join an outstanding team of professional journalists in the state’s top newsroom, located in the beautiful Black Hills of western South Dakota, where the quality of life is rivaled only by the quality of our news organization. QuarkXPress skills a plus. No calls please.

    To apply, visit www.rapidcityjournal.com/workhere and fill out an online application and attach resume.

    Per: http://www.journalismjobs.com/Job_Listing.cfm?JobID=825161

    Nice city despite being isolated. Was there a month ago when it was about 40 degrees. I picked up a Saturday paper and it was eight open pages. Pretty good balance of local and national.

    South Dakota Tech is going Division II along with Black Hills State in Spearfish 45 minutes west of town.
