    The Washington Times is seeking an experienced, versatile and creative editor to oversee the relaunch of its sports coverage. The ideal candidate will have the acumen to drive the reporting team past game-centric stories to provide unique content with a magazine-style flair to the multimedia organization's various platforms — website, newspaper and radio.

    The editor will oversee the recruitment of a diverse team of seasoned reporters, editors and energetic writers.

    Requirements include a bachelor's degree, strong communications skills and at least five years of journalism experience. Please email resumes and clips to careers@washingtontimes.com.

    How many sports reporters do they have? There's a lot of AP content on the website with just two guys -- Dan Gelston and Alan Robinson -- and no baseball reporter. A recent move by the Nationals was reported by the AP.

    Thoughts on the "Click-2-Listen" feature? (http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2011/jan/18/meszaros-ot-goal-lifts-flyers-past-caps-3-2/?page=1)

    Will they travel again? Are they going to be more like the Examiner or more along the lines of their old product? How much of a say would the new SE have in that?

    Are they going to go after any of the former staff?

    If not, I vote for Moddy.

    I'm out of the loop. I didn't even realize the paper was doing sports again.

    One more reason why you are my favorite horse ever.

    I always liked the work the paper did. Lots of questions to be answered - but this could be a very good and very interesting job.

    I just got off the horn with a former staffer. He said he'd never go back but wouldn't discourage anyone else from going after a job with the Times.

    The main question you'd face is you'd have to move to NoVa, no? Wouldn't the commute from where you are be death?

    And I've also spoken with a former staffer about this. The feeling is what Drip's source conveyed.
