    The York Dispatch, an award-winning newspaper in south-central Pennsylvania, is seeking an energetic multi-media sports reporter with a flair for writing and reporting and an eye for detail and digital presentation. The Dispatch, which has won numerous APSE, PAPME and Keystone awards over the past decade, is a five-day-a-week morning newspaper. Yorkdispatch.com is also one of the leading news and sports websites in the region. This job requires extensive local coverage, especially high school sports, but also provides opportunities for more in-depth features and reporting, as well as some limited pro and college reporting. A weekly local/regional column is also expected, as are video productions and some photography. If you want to work with a great staff in a competitive, two-newspaper town, email your resume, cover letter and clips to Teresa Hoover at thoover@yorkdispatch.com.

    This job came open around December, so either they haven't filled it or are looking for another replacement.

    I didn’t know the Dispatch had gone to the AM. I hope they hang on, but that’s not great news.

    Circulation teetering near the 10,000 mark last I heard.

    I had a full-day interview with this paper back in the early 2000s, when it was still a pm. Some really good talent on the writing staff, and Greg Bowers seemed like he would have been a hell of a guy to work for.

    Does anyone know when the JOA terminates. JOA's historically have lasted until it is time for a renewal. Then the stronger partner pulls the plug an their weaker partner.

    Garnett now owns both papers. They could pull the plug whenever.

    They are both morning papers. no? And they have separate staffs? What economic incentive would Gannett have to print competing papers?

    It's a struggle to reconcile York still being a two-paper town, especially two AMs. I had some ideas, but still hard to comprehend.

    Before our industry cratered, the belief in town was that if they pulled the plug on the Dispatch (then with a circ of 30k) there was no way they’d sell enough Daily Records to make it worthwhile. You either bought one or the other. That also was 15 years ago.
