    Come write us some great sports stories.

    The Register-Herald – a daily newspaper and southern West Virginia’s hub for sports and news – has a full-time opening for a sports reporter who will work some nights as a page designer. We cover prep sports like nobody’s business for print and online.

    This is an entry-level position – or a terrific move for someone who wants to take a step up. A college degree is required. Any experience with the digital side of the business is a plus. For design, we use InDesign and all reporters are issued a MacBook. You must have a car and a valid license to drive it.

    Our priorities are clear: preps, preps and more preps. It feeds an appreciative and attentive audience, and we win awards for our coverage – for writing, design and photography. We also produce a popular weekly prep sports podcast.

    The successful candidate will be versatile and creative, dive deep into the local sports culture and deliver game reports and enterprise that surprise, enlighten and engage a readership.

    We also cover a pair of local colleges, West Virginia University-Tech and Concord, in addition to West Virginia University and Marshall. An independent league baseball team, the Miners, draws our summer attention. Outdoors adventure – on the rapids and on mountain trails, at local lakes and state parks including the spectacular New River Gorge – is important real estate, too.

    Beckley is the cultural and entertainment center of southern West Virginia. We are a half-day’s drive from DC and other major destinations. The view out the window is drop-dead beautiful and the cost of living here is dirt cheap.

    The pay is competitive for community newspapers of our size. Additionally, The Register-Herald offers a benefits package, including medical, dental, vision and paid holidays. We are an equal opportunity employer. Visit our Web site at www.register-herald.com to see what we’re doing – and listen to the podcast while you are there.

    If you think you are the right fit and are seeking an opportunity like no other, please send a cover letter, resume and a half-dozen work examples to our sports editor, Gary Fauber, at gfauber@register-herald.com.
