The Brookings (S.D.) Register

Discussion in 'Journalism Jobs' started by philly fanatic, May 3, 2007.

  1. The Brookings Register, a daily paper in Brookings, South Dakota, is seeking a talented individual to join our team as sports editor in a Division I town. Candidates must possess passion for a wide-range of sports, strong writing ability, photography skills and knowledge of AP style. If you think you have what it takes to elevate our sports coverage to the next level, please send resume and clips to The Brookings Register, c/o Ken Curley, PO Box 177, Brookings, SD 57006
     
  2. The "Calling All Sports Fans!" headline sure is annoying (probably written by some HR moron). It seems this paper has a circulation around 5,000. How many on staff? And would you be the main Division I beat writer?

    Not sure how taking your own photos equals 'the next level?'

    Probably pays half of what they earn next door at Daktronics.

    Stopped through Brookings on the way to Fargo to cover a football game once. Gorgeous, peaceful town.

    That's the extent of my Brookings knowledge.

    Covered a football game there once back in the day. Never been colder in my entire life.

    Worked at the Register while I was a student at SDSU. It basically was the sports editor (Billy McMacken) and myself. I enjoyed my time there. Covered Brookings High School, some Jackrabbits wrestling and basketball, and designed pages.

    It's a nice, small, college town from what I remember. It also was cold as hell the entire time. It was 80 below with the wind chill one day. Brrrrrr.
