Topics will include training camp, regular-season and postseason games, off-season coverage, daily breaking news, business and contractual matters, features, profiles, notes, analysis, off-field news, blogs and videos. This reporter will provide timely and competitive coverage; he or she will be expected to break stories.

This reporter should have a history of breaking news stories and experience with social media, and should have knowledge of and interest in professional sports in the Twin Cities and the National Football League. Ability to quickly assess spot news and adapt to fast-breaking news situations, while planning long-term coverage of important issues is essential.

    This close to the season? That sucks for the editors. There will be tons of resumes and not a lot of time to get someone good nailed down. Best of luck.

    I spent two months at Turnover, Pa. Am I ready? It's not all about how old you are, you know?
  8. Spoke to Glen about this gig recently. Seems like he'd be a really cool guy to work for.

    Sounds like Strib would be a good place to work. I've always loved my Twin Cities visits.

    Judd did an incredible job. It seems he broke the bulk of the news on a very competitive beat.
