    From JJ:

    Location: Harrisburg, Pennsylvania
    Job Status: Full-time
    Salary: Negotiable
    Website: http://pennlive.com


    PennLive.com is seeking a manager with a 100 percent digital focus to run a talented and aggressive sports department.

    This is a unique opportunity and we’re looking for a unique person. You don’t have to be a rabid sports fan, but you must convince us you have the tools and knowledge to lead the department in a competitive digital sports/news environment.

    This person must understand the value of increasing audience – especially in focus areas such as Penn State football, high school sports and the NFL – and bring ideas to the table every day.

    Proven success in digital news or sports is required (the fact you post your stories online isn’t enough). Previous newspaper experience isn’t required, but you should be able to demonstrate leadership, journalistic standards, writing ability and web-style storytelling.

    Management experience is a must.

    Send your resume and links to the best work you’ve written or directed. Don’t bother linking to routine gamers or features. Send something that will make you stand out.

    Also, don’t waste time with a traditional cover letter. Just tell me in the email why you’d be a good candidate.

    We’re moving quickly, so email Mike Feeley, PennLive director of content, at mfeeley@pennlive.com.

    Our sports manager is moving on and I believe his last day is April 30. Ask on here or PM me and I'll try to give as much info as I can.

    Paul is now our Enterprise Manager. I've been told he will not be moving back to this position and they are looking outside of the company. Paul just moved to his new position a little less than a year ago and told me he'd like to stay there. I do believe he will be representing Michael Sedor at the next APSE regional meeting, though.

    From what I can tell, they are down to the final four or five with two guys flying in for interviews this week. I think Paul said they are looking to make a hire within the next two weeks.

    I may know one of the candidates, and if he is a finalist I hope he gets it. He would do a very good job running that department.
