    The Times Publishing Company, publisher of the award-winning 50,000 daily circulation Erie Times-News and GoErie.com, seeks a general-assignment sports reporter. We want a versatile writer who excels at enterprise reporting, game/event coverage and hard news. We value accuracy above all and seek someone who is adept at writing under tight deadlines.

    Coverage could include an NBA Development League team, other minor league sports and an array of high school and college sports. Applicants must be fluent with social media and should have experience shooting video. The position also will require handling stories for news, including 1A pieces.

    Applicants should have extensive experience in newspaper reporting or other journalism positions. A bachelor's degree in journalism or a related field is required. We're seeking someone who can self-edit and work in concert with a sports editor.

    Applications must be received by Feb. 15. Interested individuals should send a cover letter, resume with a telephone number and e-mail contact information, and examples of their work to humanresources@timesnews.com. No phone calls, please. EOE

    My parents grew up in Erie.

    They left before having a family, and raised us in Southern California.

    This posting reminds me to thank them for that, for the millionth time.

    I covered the NCAA wrestling tournament for these guys last year here in St. Louis. Pay was better than expected freelancing for a smaller paper. Sports editor seemed to be a good guy to work for in my two-week experience setting up coverage, paperwork and then covering the event for them.
