    The Daily Press, located in Newport News, Va., is looking for a reporter to cover high school athletics. The ideal candidate will have a digital-first approach to news, embrace social media and video, have the ability to develop sources and be a strong storyteller. We want someone who can cover a game and file on a tight deadline, but who can also develop enterprise stories and localize trends and topics. You’ll work with a veteran staff in an area that often has local connections to national sports events and stories.

    The Daily Press is located on the Virginia Peninsula, bordered by the Chesapeake Bay, James River and York River. We cover a region with multiple cities and counties, including Newport News, Hampton, Yorktown and Williamsburg. We are home to Colonial Williamsburg, Busch Gardens Williamsburg and Fort Monroe. We offer a great place to live and work.

    Send your resume, cover letter, three references and five writing samples to Sports Editor Andi Petrini at apetrini@dailypress.com.

    I have been on vacation and am just getting back to the office. From what I'm told, we have narrowed well more than 100 candidates down to the ones we want to interview.

    Since this was posted twice, I'll update it twice .... the position is filled. No name to put out there yet, but once we know all notifications have been made, I'll do that.

    We have hired Kate Yanchulis, a graduate of the University of Maryland, for our open high school reporting job. Kate covered Maryland's football and men's basketball team for the Diamondback. She has worked for the Fairfax County Times for the past couple of years covering the education beat and helping out the sports editor.
