    My name is Darnell Dickson and I'm the sports editor at the Lincoln Journal Star. We are looking for a Sports Online Editor. Here's the ad (although it still reads "Assistant Online Editor" on Monster.com):

    "The Lincoln Journal Star is seeking a creative and innovative Sports Online Editor to head up one of Lee’ s most successful sports franchises, huskerextra.​com.​ This editor will build article pages, edit content (both text and video), write headlines and cutlines and publish breaking news to the home page.​ The duties include occasional supervisory editing and copy desk editing and other duties as assigned.​
