    Company: Midland Reporter-Telegram
    Wanted: Ace sports reporter
    Midland, Texas
    Job Status: Full-time
    Salary: Negotiable
    Website: http://www.mrt.com

    The Midland (Texas) Reporter-Telegram, a Hearst Corp. Newspaper in a fast-growing community in West Texas, is seeking a multi-media sports journalist for our award-winning sports section.
    We are looking for someone who can provide fresh ideas for stories, can work well on deadline, help keep the quality of our section high and also adapt to the ever changing world of digital journalism.
    High schools are our bread and butter, but the Permian Basin's sports scene is complemented by a Double-A baseball team, a yearly Web.com Tour golf event, a very active local golf scene and a Premier Development League soccer team.
    This position is primarily a writing and reporting position. We are looking for someone who can not only write the game story and feature, but someone who can get into our community and find sports stories beyond the high schools.
    Candidates should have a strong knowledge of AP Style, while experience with Adobe InDesign, Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Freehand is preferred but not required, and a solid knowledge of social media.
    Experience is a plus but recent college graduates will be considered. We plan to fill this position quickly because of the how busy our spring season is.
    Please send resume, clips and layouts to: Oscar LeRoy, sports editor, at oleroy@mrt.com.
