SPORTS REPORTER

Pine Bluff Commercial / Pine Bluff

Summary: You take a genuine interest in local sports, especially … but not limited to, high school sports. If called upon, you can handle covering collegiate athletics. You believe in more than just writing game stories. You establish strong connections with local sources and learn more about coaches and athletes away from the playing surface to write sports-related stories not even our readers would think about. You know, those human-interest stories you don’t wait for your editor to assign you. On top of that, you have some pagination skills, or at least an eye for design that we can build on. And in everything you do, you value even the most minute of details and always strive to take your game to the next level. If all this best explains you, the Pine Bluff Commercial wants you to become our next full-time sports reporter.

Description: To be clear, this position does involve a bit of pagination duties, but we like to lean “sports reporters” more toward reporting. How else are we supposed to get great local content? Let’s talk about the coverage area: We cover most of Southeast Arkansas, including 1 private and 15 public high schools. (We also give the five junior high schools in our immediate area a chance to get some ink, too.) As if that’s not good enough, our area is also home to the Division I University of Arkansas-Pine Bluff Golden Lions and Division II Arkansas-Monticello Boll Weevils/Cotton Blossoms. You can look forward to some of the opportunities involving our local colleges. All this being said, let’s be clear on a few things: If you’re looking to apply with the hopes of being staffed to Arkansas Razorbacks sporting events, don’t apply. (Oh, we love Razorback coverage, and our readers do, too. But our company has a full-time UA beat writer stationed in Fayetteville.) This is a national search, so don’t be afraid to apply from anywhere. As long as you are the right candidate and this is the right fit for you, we’ll be happy to give you a chance.

Requirements: If you have not regularly reported for a newspaper (college experience and steady stringing acceptable) during the past 18 months, please don’t apply. I’m only interested in what immediate sports journalism experience you have.

To Apply, or for more information:   If you’re serious about this opportunity and your references have nothing but great things to say about you, email a cover letter and resume to:

I.C. Murrell, Sports Editor

imurrell@pbcommercial.com<mailto:imurrell@pbcommercial.com>

Selected candidates will be asked to forward clips and writing samples for further evaluation, so no need to send those just yet.
