    Sports/multimedia reporter

    The Herald and News in Klamath Falls, Ore., has an immediate opening for a sports/multimedia reporter.
    It is a great opportunity for a writer to work across all social media platforms; not just write and file basic game stories for the daily newspaper.

    We have a small sports staff, but a large coverage area. The Herald and News is a six-day-a-week newspaper covering Klamath, Lake, Modoc, Siskiyou counties in Southern Oregon and Northern California. We cover more than a dozen local high schools and a successful NAIA college.

    What we are looking for is a versatile reporter, whose heart is in the sports he or she will be covering and who will write compelling sports features as well as shoot photos and video. It’s a demanding job but a great opportunity for one to spread their wings. After a few years, many of our staffers move on to larger, metro newspapers or online sites; and we promote that.

    The ideal candidate for this job will be able to connect with local coaches and players, write clean and concise copy and have the ability to tell a good story. To be successful in this job, you must be able to meet strict deadlines.

    The Herald and News has a growing social media following, and we are seeking someone with social media and video knowledge who can multi-task and work efficiently in a quick-paced environment.

    The newspaper is a 14,500-circulation paper just east of the Cascades in southern Oregon. There’s a wide variety of outdoor recreation from mountain biking to kayaking, camping, fishing and hunting. This community loves its local sports, too.
