Sports reporter, Natchez Democrat

Discussion in 'Journalism Jobs' started by The Rules of Golf, Nov 11, 2006.

  1. The Natchez Democrat, a 10,000-circulation daily surrounded by nine high schools and one university, is currently recruiting its next sports reporter. Ideal recruits will have sports experience at a college newspaper, a weekly or daily, Quark or InDesign experience and an eye for the story behind the game. Although much of our coverage is of preps and Alcorn State University, we branch out to LSU, Ole Miss, Mississippi State, Southern Miss and the New Orleans Saints when pertinent. Job duties include writing, page design and heading up our weekly outdoors page. Requirements include a desire to learn and grow while making a difference with your work while you hone your knowledge and skills. Our location on the Mississippi River makes us a mecca for hunting, fishing and even a little kayaking. For more information contact Managing Editor Julie Finley at julie.finley@natchezdemocrat.com or 601-445-3551.


    My $.02: Finley is pretty damn sharp and would be an excellent employer.

    I don't know about Julie -- she was still at the DM during my time in N'town -- but Kevin Cooper, Todd Carpeneter and the rest of the staff there are damn fine folks to work for.

    Not surprising. Natchez is a good place for someone to cut teeth and move on.

    Lots of people have done that. They've gone through several SEs in the last couple years and, last I heard, had been without a full sports staff for a while.

    OK... I"m close to this situation. I'm the guy that left. If anyone would like to know the real info about this job, PM me. I'll be glad to you why you shouldn't take this job.

    Seems that way, Blitz.

    Not here, however. I enjoyed my time there and would recommend it to youngsters.
