    Same paper posted a job seeking a sports editor earlier this month (August). My guess is that they filled that spot from within, thus opening this one.....

    The Laredo Morning Times is looking for a sports writer to join its sports staff. LMT is a daily newspaper owned by Hearst Corporation serving the Laredo, Texas area which has a population of over 236,000. It features sports including local high school and Division II athletics, arena football, American Association baseball and professional soccer in the USL Premier Development League and the Professional Arena Soccer League.

    At least one year of experience is preferred, but recent graduates with experience through their student newspapers and internships are encouraged to apply. The right candidate must have a thorough knowledge of sports, be organized and be able to write compelling sports stories in AP style. Breaking news, meeting deadlines and social media are a must. He or she would also be responsible for taking the occasional shift on the sports desk.

    Laredo is a warm environment which features palm trees and winter months with highs of 70 degrees. If this position interests you, e-mail a cover letter, resume and samples of your published stories to sports editor Zach Davis at sports@lmtonline.com. Send samples including breaking news, covering a game on a deadline and any column work. No phone calls please. LMT is an equal opportunity employer. Job offers are contingent on passing a drug test.

    Looks like they promoted Zach Davis to sports editor and Jason Mack to assistant SE.

    Ian McCue, formerly of MLB.com and the Colorado Springs Gazette has announced on his twitter page that he has been hired to take this position.

    Wow, based on the experience they cited in their ad, that seems like an unexpected hire.
