    The Muscatine Journal, a six-day daily newspaper and online information provider on the Mississippi River in southeast Iowa, is seeking a multi-media sports journalist to cover prep sports. The ideal candidate will be able to write, take photographs and work the desk. Social media savvy journalists with experience posting to the Web and thinking digitally should apply. Pagination experience helpful.

    The Muscatine Journal offers a competitive wage and outstanding benefits that include medical, dental, vision and life insurance. If you are interested in this excellent opportunity, please apply @ Career Opportunities at Lee. Please provide work samples.

    I'm the sports editor here, so feel free to shoot any questions my way.

    I have fond memories of Muscatine ... laid-back river town, with great Mexican eateries (bi-lingual skills would come in handy here). The Quad-Cities and Iowa City aren't too far away, if you're looking for after-hours activities/night life.

    My guess is the Journal sports department still coordinates prep coverage with the Quad-City Times quite a bit, since many of the Muscatine H.S. league games are in Davenport and Bettendorf. There's some good people at the QC Times.

    A good opportunity for a young journalist, or a weekly reporter looking to move up to a smaller daily paper.

    Is the Journal still a PM paper, Andy?

    We're a morning paper now. Not sure exactly how long we have been, but it's been around five years or so, I think.

    And we do work quite closely with the Quad-City Times. We're a part of the same group, so we try to coordinate to help one another. In fact, it's not uncommon to have a byline in the Times' sports section every now and then.
