    I'm the lead reporter at The Messenger in Madisonville, Ky. One of our sports reporters has left us to take a job with the state. We're looking to fill the position. PM me if you have questions.

    The Messenger, a six-day morning daily in Madisonville, Ky., seeks a sports writer to join our two-person sports staff. Our sports writers are primarily responsible for covering prep sports in Hopkins and Webster counties in western Kentucky. No desk or layout duties are involved. Sports writers report to the lead news reporter and directly to the executive editor. We cover a variety of sports from fishing to football, soccer to volleyball, and a wide range in between. All prep sports have both boys and girls teams with the exception of volleyball and football. Sports writers generally work five afternoon/evening shifts each week, alternating between Wednesday and Saturday off days. Sunday assignments are rare. We do not publish on Monday. The successful applicant will have experience in a newspaper sports department as a writer. He/she will be computer savvy and have the ability to work with and through the Internet. Some photography with a "point and shoot" digital camera is occasionally required. The Messenger is a Paxton Media Group newspaper. To apply, send resume and clips to Tom Clinton, executive editor, The Messenger, P.O. 529, Madisonville, Ky. 42431, or tclinton@the-messenger.com.
