Stats LLC looking for another writer(s)

Discussion in 'Journalism Jobs' started by Prince of Persia, Sep 7, 2007.

  1. Seems like this place has an opening once a year. From the apse site:

    Stats LLC, a joint venture of The Associated Press and News Corp., is searching for a sports writer. We are a leading provider of sports stories, data, photos and audio to media (print, Internet, television, wireless), professional leagues and teams, game companies and commercial sites. Our customers include, among others, Yahoo!, ESPN and CBS Sportsline.

    The ideal candidate will be thoroughly knowledgeable and passionately interested in all major U.S. sports with demonstrated experience as a writer and a solid background in journalism. Responsibilities include: preview writing for all major professional leagues and Top 25 college football and basketball games; multimedia linking; daily updating of individual player news and notes; customized editorial work.

    Must be prepared to work nights and weekends. An overnight position is also available. Work will be done out of Stats' new international headquarters located in Northbrook, Ill., just north of Chicago.

    Please send a cover letter, resume and writing samples to:

    Brian Orefice, Director, News & Editorial Operations

    sounds decent if all you have to is write previews.
  4. What would the pay be? Probably somewhere between 35-40?
