    The Bucyrus Telegrah-Forum is looking for a sports reporter who is interested in doing more than daily game coverage. The right person will know how to carve great daily stories and in-depth enterprise projects from a handful of community sports beats - high school as well as college. Game coverage is a given – so we want someone whose skills as a storyteller will keep readers informed as well as entertained.

    You will be part of an aggressive news team with a priority of developing watchdog news stories – as both the Telegraph-Forum and the very lively BucyrusTelegraphForum.com continue efforts to best serve the community and stay ahead of the competition.

    Bucyrus is a great news community of about 20,000 located in the Heart of Ohio. Owned by Gannett, the Telegraph-Forum is partnered with the Mansfield News Journal, the largest of the 10-member Media Network of Central Ohio. An ambitious reporter with good planning and writing skills will have ample opportunities to work on joint projects with our sister sites and to see his or her bylines published across the state.

    Required qualifications: A bachelor’s degree in journalism or equivalent; newsroom experience; must be committed to online reporting; experience working from an advanced planning budget; have understanding of AP style, good usage and spelling, and a clean writing style that engages readers.

    We pay competitive wages and offer a comprehensive benefits package. A pre-employment background check is required.

    Send your resume, salary expectations and samples of your work to David Kennard, at e-mail dkennard@gannett.com. (E-mails should include candidate's name in the subject field.) No phone calls please. Gannett is an Equal Opportunity Employer.

    I know they downsized from a 2 man staff to a 1 man staff a few years back (although they still have a part-timer too). Anyone know if are they adding someone or is Dan Clutter moving on?

    Dan left. Not of his own accord.
    Bucyrus is one of the smallest papers Gannett owns. It used to be its own shop, but is essentially run out of the Mansfield News-Journal. It's fairly prep-heavy, along with rec stuff. There's a chance to do some Ohio State coverage.

    I know their sports section usually is an award-winner in its division, too.
