    Description: The Daily Republic, a six-day daily newspaper in Mitchell, S.D., is seeking an energetic sports lover to report, design pages, shoot photos and manage web content as part of our three-member sports staff.

    This position is open because our recent sports editor opening was filled with an in-house promotion.

    This is a great opportunity for a young journalist, but applicants will be expected to have a college journalism degree and a solid knowledge base. If you're a recent college graduate, we'll be looking for strong experience at your college newspaper. That experience should include lots of writing, and also some page design and photography. If you were heavily involved in the sports section for your college newspaper, or if you have some professional experience in sports journalism and are looking for a new challenge, this could be a great opportunity for you.

    The Daily Republic has a print circulation of about 11,000 copies and reaches about 100,000 people monthly at mitchellrepublic.com. The print edition was redesigned last year, and the Sports section is now a color section front for the first time in the paper's 133-year history. Progressive changes such as those have helped The Daily Republic earn the General Excellence Award each of the past four years in its division of the South Dakota Newspaper Assocation's Better Newspapers Contest. We are a growing, evolving media operation, and we want applicants who are willing to work hard and excel.

    Sports coverage opportunities include about 35 high schools in our area, one NAIA university in Mitchell, lots of summertime Legion and amateur baseball, an annual professional rodeo, and three local/area natives playing in professional leagues (Mike Miller of the Miami Heat, Chad Greenway of the Minnesota Vikings and Riley Reiff of the Detroit Lions).

    To apply, send a cover letter, resume and work samples to Editor Seth Tupper, stupper@mitchelrepublic.com. Only the applicants chosen for interviews will be contacted.
