Sports reporter

News-Topic
Lenoir, North Carolina

The Lenoir News-Topic, a small newspaper in the Blue Ridge Mountain foothills halfway between Blowing Rock and Hickory, has an opening for a sports reporter, with primary responsibility for covering high school sports but also the local community college teams, American Legion baseball, and other local sports issues as they arise. The ideal candidate has a love of local sports, can build a rapport with busy coaches, is able to plan, can write both game stories and features equally well, and appreciates the strong connection a small community feels with its local sports teams. At a paper this size, you have a lot of room to pursue topics of your choice. It’s a good opportunity for a young reporter seeking experience and a job that offers variety.
