    Big-time gig, and Creig Ewing is an excellent sports editor. Good luck to all that apply.


    Will report and write stories about the University of Louisville sports teams, primarily football and basketball and other topics as necessary, primarily for the daily newspaper and online.

    I wonder if Creig would mind that I've never covered a college basketball program.

    I know a lot of sports sections do a "Page Two," but I really love Louisville's. CJ does some good stuff.
  5. In one of his last articles for the C-J, Brown spelled out "T-H-A-N-K Y-O-U L-O-U-I-S-V-I-L-L-E" using the first letter of each graph:

    That was pretty cool with first letter of each graf. No difficult letters, so not that forced ...

    University of Louisville beat writer, Louisville Courier-Journal

    Hey guys, I'm not the one making this call, but was asked to spread the word. I've been at the C-J for a year and can vouch for the intense interest sports coverage generates here, and it's obviously not a bad time to cover Louisville.

    Like everyone these days, they're looking for someone with great multimedia skills, especially shooting video. Also, it's best if you have experience covering a college or pro beat. (This job is football and basketball)

    You should send a resume, clips, video samples, blog entries, etc. to sports editor Creig Ewing at:


    Or snail mail.

    Feel free to hit me up if you have questions. Last words of advice: did I mention the importance of video?

    Re: University of Louisville beat writer, Louisville Courier-Journal

    What about those who applied through the Gannett site, should they reapply with this avenue?
