The Chatham News + Record is a print + digital news organization providing essential and compelling news content to all of Chatham County, N.C. We’ve won more news awards than any small weekly newspaper in North Carolina over the last three years and we’re continuing to raise the bar about what community journalism is and does.
Our award-winning sports editor is relocating, so we’re seeking to fill the position with an enthusiastic sports journalist to cover prep and other local sports, provide written sports commentary, build relationships with local coaches and athletes and tell great stories for our print and online products. That includes game coverage, features, analysis, profiles and more. We publish weekly in print and provide timely digital content throughout the year. Our sports editor also works with a local stringer network and is a part of our newsroom team, providing production assistance.
We’re looking for strong writing skills, a good eye, a good ear, and a proven track record as a sports journalist.
Please send a letter of introduction, work samples and references to Publisher Bill Horner III at email@example.com.
Position posting closes on June 30.
