    What I can tell you: First off, it's not my job. I hope. Actually, we're starting a second weekly newspaper in the Chesterfield County area , and the powers that be are adding a sports person to handle the two papers and websites there. There's seven high schools between the two publications and a stock car track. There's also a lot of emphasis on community sports, and they're trying to increase their online presence. It's a good first job.

    PM me for more details.

    You're hired!

    (I've always wanted to do that.)
  4. Are you looking for a sports editor (as the thread title indicates) or a reporter (as the ad states)?
    Just curious.

    The listing on Media General's website says sports editor, and that's what I've been going by for the last year. Also, the link up top doesn't seem to work, so go to jobs.mediageneral.com for the listing info.
