    The Ledger Independent, a 6,000- circulation daily newspaper serving a seven-county area in northern Kentucky and southern Ohio has an opening for a sports editor.

    We’re looking for someone to lead our sports staff of one additional full-time employee, as well as several free lance reporters. This is a management position, but the sports editor also has the opportunity to take part in the coverage plan he directs.

    We cover 13 area high schools, along with UK, the Bengals and Reds. We are the only daily newspaper in the seven-county area and we are the go-to source for local news and sports coverage, including our on-line versions and social media.


    We are looking for 1-2 years of sports writing experience.
    Copy editing is key and decision-making a must.
    A bachelor’s degree is desired, and management experience is a plus.
    Multimedia skills and videography skills are also pluses.
    Night shifts and weekend work are part of the job.

    We offer a competitive compensation and benefits package. We are part of Lee Enterprises.

    To apply, go to http://maysville-online.com/workhere/ to submit a resume and cover letter. No phone calls or walk-ins, please. If we are interested in your application, we will contact you for more information and work samples.

    The Ledger Independent is a drug free employer. The Ledger Independent (www.maysville-online.com) and Lee Enterprises, Inc. (www.lee.net) are Equal Opportunity Employers.

    I've never worked at this paper, but if anyone has questions about the area, the surrounding sports, etc., I can shed light on it. I grew up very close to here.
