Strong digital skills are expected, including the ability to shoot, edit and appear on video and to assist in management of high schools and local content on our website.

    No. That one's in Orlando and we'll soon make a hire there. This one is in Fort Lauderdale.

    If I'm hired, can I also take the lucrative youth football beat?

    Lot of friends at the Sun-Sentinel. High Schools is a very competitive...and dare I say fun (and somewhat stressful) beat in South Florida. Competition in Broward with the Miami Herald and Palm Beach with the Post.

    Broward and Palm Beach football are among the most successful in the state. St. Thomas Aquinas is among the best prep football programs nationally. Broward and Palm Beach produce nearly 100 FBS football prospects annually so you'll be watching guys on Friday and eventually tracking them on Saturdays and Sundays.

    Basketball, Baseball, Track...there's always a few Broward schools that specialize in at lease one sport.

    Is this another job opening or is it the same one that was filled in another thread?

    I was wondering having seen this one posted on May 2.

    The promotion of a person to the other job posted created this opening.
