    Come join our team in the surprisingly vibrant sports community of Northeast South Dakota.

    The Aberdeen American News is a daily Schurz-owned newspaper and website with a large, energetic newsroom featuring a four-person sports staff. We cover a dynamic Division II school, a spunky NAIA school and a ton of preps, plus more local sports.

    The sports department is undergoing a leadership transition, as our previous editor is headed to a big job in Phoenix and the new editor (me, incidentally) is being promoted from within. This means there's room for creativity and redefining of coverage plans. The ideal candidate will have both a passion for print storytelling and a talent for digital -- including on-camera -- audience engagement.

    This is an admittedly remote outpost, but we've got great sports and a great community to serve. It's a perfect place for a young, dynamic, digital-native journalist coming out of school looking for a great environment to grow in, but it's also a great job for a vet reporter looking for a daily to step up to or an exciting change of scenery. Coaching, workshopping and mutual talent development is a high priority.

    I'm the new sports editor. Email me with any questions or feel free to post here and I'll get back to you. If you're applying, don't hesitate to drop me a note. I'm at cmeade@aberdeennews.com.

    A four-man sports staff? Dang. What’s your circulation?

    It's not huge! We're in that 10-20 range, but we've got a very dedicated, widespread readership with a ton of sports to cover.
