    The Monitor, located in McAllen, Texas, is looking for a web and social-media savvy sports reporter with design skills to join our staff. Our staff covers beats ranging from high school football, the NBA D-League, Division I athletics (University of Texas-Pan American) and other sports.

    High school sports are prominent in our section and drive RGVSports.com, a site shared with our sister papers in Brownsville, Texas, and Harlingen, Texas.

    Our ideal candidate is aggressive, loves to dig, works quickly and accurately and has the skills to write hard news, in-depth or feature stories people want to read online and in print. Also, because everyone shares desk duties, the applicant should have a working knowledge of InDesign.

    We offer a competitive salary and benefits, including health and dental insurance and a 401K that has a company match.

    Recent college graduates will be considered, but professional experience is preferred.

    Please send at least five clips along with a resume and cover letter to Dennis Silva, Deputy Sports Editor, at dsilva@themonitor.com or via fax at (956) 683-4401. Samples can also be mailed to 1400 E. Nolana Loop, McAllen, Texas, 78502. Feel free to email Dennis with any questions.
