    The Tahlequah Daily Press is seeking a sports editor to take it's award-winning coverage to the next level. TDP is an exceptional venue from which to launch a sports writing career, and offers a beautiful and eclectic environment for living. We cover four high schools and an NCAA II university, all with enthusiastic fan bases. We need an organized person with good writing and photography skills; a familiarity with all different types of sports; and an ability to not only work as part of a six-member news team, but to lead and organize stringers. Experience in Quark, layout and page design on Macs necessary; degree and/ or experience in journalism a must. Good benefits; salary commensurate. Send resume to Kim Poindexter, managing editor, at kpoindexter@cnhi.com.

    Disclaimer: I worked at their larger, sister paper down the road. Tahlequah is a decent, hyper-local paper and covers Northeast Oklahoma State University. It can be a good spot for someone early in their career who wants to get their feet wet and show what they can do in all areas: writing, editing, pagination, photography, etc.

    CNHI is what it is and the pros and cons have been discussed at length on these boards. There are CNHI papers in Norman and Stillwater as well, so the possibility of advancement exists, at least in theory. Tulsa is a short drive away if you want a big city fix and the cost of living is VERY low, so your salary will stretch further than almost anywhere in the U.S.

    I was a stringer for this paper when I was in college (in the same town), know the outgoing sports editor and many of the folks at the university and in the area you'll be working with. There are worse small towns to land in for a fresh face.
