    Tallapoosa Publishers, a media company with five newspapers in Central Alabama on the shores of beautiful Lake Martin, is seeking a sports journalist to lead the charge in transforming our Elmore County sports pages from good to great.

    We are seeking a person driven to write compelling stories on deadline on multiple platforms and to produce quality sports sections with balanced and in-depth coverage for our three Elmore County papers. We cover seven high schools, youth sports and a wide range of outdoor and recreational sports. A person who can work independently, with great organizational, innovative ideas and time-management skills, will flourish here.

    The ideal candidate would possess a bachelor's degree in journalism or related field, or equivalent experience, knowledge of AP style and libel law, good photography and video skills and knowledge of Photoshop and the entire Adobe Creative Suite. Experience in handling web and social media posting is also a plus.

    We are an equal opportunity employer offering our employees a chance to flourish, a team atmosphere that thrives on journalism excellence, competitive pay and great benefits.

    Interested candidates should email resumes and writing samples to editor@alexcityoutlook.com.
