Sports reporter job in Texas

The Canadian Record, a small weekly newspaper near the Texas-Oklahoma border, seeks a full-time sports writer/general assignment reporter who knows how to handle a camera and lay out the weekly sports section, and who isn’t afraid to cover a monthly school board meeting, deliver newspapers to local newsstands and pitch in to help with all facets of news coverage in this small but progressive town in the northeastern Texas Panhandle.

Chief responsibilities involve covering and photographing sports activities in a Class A school district from elementary school through high school, with special attention to all varsity sports (football, cross country, basketball, track and field, golf and tennis). General reporting responsibilities include some District and County Court proceedings as well as breaking news, i.e., fires, wrecks and severe weather. Reporter also shares responsibility with other staff to cover special events around the county, and is encouraged to write feature stories about local events and personalities. Knowledge of Photoshop and InDesign a plus.
