    SPORTS REPORTER

    Forsyth County News, a 13,000 circulation newspaper (4-days) located in Forsyth County Georgia is looking for a creative, energetic reporter to cover high school sports and other recreation. We are looking for someone who can turn a game story (on deadline) that tells a reader more than who, what, where, why and when. We want someone who has the imagination and creativity to keep our readers informed and entertained. We want someone who has strong ethics and the ability to work well with our team.

    Knowledge of AP style is required. Proficiency with In Design and Photoshop is a plus. Experience or willingness to learn how to shoot short, smart video clips for coach or player of the week segments would be a strong plus.

    Our market focuses on Forsyth County, near the beautiful North Georgia Mountains and only 40 miles from the many amenities of Atlanta. Our coverage area approximates 150K population and has 5 high schools.

    Our compensation package includes competitive pay, medical, dental, and life.

    Send letter, résumé and clips to Jared Putnam, sports editor, at jputnam@forsythnews.com

    Do they still hold Klan rallies at the court house there every month? It's been 15 years since I've lived in Atlanta, but I know they used to back in the mid-90s

    Forsyth Co. is NOT cheap to live in...

    Not only is Cumming a real place, there is a Siemens smoke stack there, too.
