Must possess a valid driver's license with a driving record that is insurable by the company. The Republican Eagle is part of RiverTown Newspaper Group, a division of Forum Communications Co., which provides a comprehensive benefit package.

    This used to be a daily, but recently moved to twice a week.
  3. This is my old job. I accepted a position just down the road at the Rochester Post Bulletin last week. Given the stated changes and current economic climate, I'm glad to see the Eagle actually plan to fill this one.

    Feel free to PM me with questions. I check this board a few times a week and can answer any questions you might have, if you're willing to be patient.

    Received a pleasant e-mail from Ryan regarding this position. Got the impression he's got a broad applicant pool. Appreciated him contacting me. Sounds like a heck of an opportunity for a puckhead.

    Like most sports jobs in Minnesota. At least Red Wing is in one of the warmer parts of the state.

    I also thought you wanted the chance to cover the second-grade football squads. I don't know how those kids are doing, but they sure do work a little bit harder than the third graders.

    You only cover us when the third graders are on the road!!
