    The Journal North, the Albuquerque Journal's edition for Santa Fe and much of Northern New Mexico, is seeking a versatile reporter who can split time between local sports coverage and news. Applicants should be able to demonstrate they can cover a high school basketball game one day and produce a news feature about a city council issue the next. Good writing and a knack for strong features are required. Spanish language skills are a plus. Two or three years daily newspaper experience preferred.

    The Journal North has transitioned recently from a daily section to a weekly print edition with a strong web presence for breaking and daily news.The Santa Fe staff also contributes stories often to the statewide paper. Applicants should be comfortable with posting stories, images and video on-line and pushing their stories on social media.

    Send a resume and clips to Journal North editor Mark Oswald at moswald@abqjournal.com, or to Mark Oswald, Journal North, 328 Galisteo, Santa Fe NM 87501. No phone calls, please.

    I know a few things about the Journal North. The coverage area focuses primarily on Santa Fe and Espanola, with some coverage of Las Vegas and a few other communities. They used to go as far north as Raton, but not any longer.

    That doesn't mean you are expected to cover everything single thing in all those communities -- your main focus would be on stories of highest interest. The writers do tend to focus more on sports than news.

    I can't speak as much to management at the paper. I can tell you, though, that some good people have written for the Journal North in the past. Will Webber wrote there for several years and was a heck of a writer (he now writes for the New Mexican).
