    The Recorder, an award-winning daily newspaper in Amsterdam, is seeking an enthusiastic and skilled full-time sports reporter to cover local sporting events and write features.

    Generally, people in the Amsterdam area are passionate about local sports — the high school football team routinely draws 5,000 fans to a home game, and the Amsterdam Mohawks led the New York Collegiate Baseball League in attendance — and The Recorder is the primary source for local sports news.

    Candidates must have a bachelor's degree and college, weekly or daily newspaper writing experience.

    Candidates with photography and/or editing experience will be given preference.

    Amsterdam is centrally located in upstate New York, 30 minutes west of Albany.

    We offer a competitive salary and great benefits. For immediate consideration email your resume, cover letter and writing clips to Geoffrey Dylong, Director of News Operations, at geoff@recordernews.com. If necessary, mail your items to The Recorder, 1 Venner Rd., Amsterdam, NY 12010.

    I'd think the pay for this would be low 20s. Sounds like a gig for someone out of school.

    The pay is actually higher than low 20s and a good gig for a young journalist. The woman who is leaving just accepted a sports reporter position at one of the larger New England newspapers.
