Company: Morning Sun
Position:
Sports, News Reporters needed
Location:
Pittsburg, Kansas
Job Status:  Full-time
Salary:  Negotiable
Website: http://www.morningsun.net

Description:

Community Sports Reporter
The Morning Sun located in Pittsburg, Kan., is searching for a community sports reporter.  Candidate must have experience writing and covering sports as a beat, be digital savvy and posses the ability to manage multiple tasks. The reporter must be comfortable with a range of story topics from high school to college game coverage, feature stories, athlete Q&A’s and other minor sports as time allows. They should be able to recognize you before long — it’s not a desk job.
While you will work with an editor and contract with stringers for game coverage and photography, you will be independent in your pursuit of story ideas and sources.

Community News Reporter
The Morning Sun is also searching for a community news reporter with digital awareness and a desire to get involved in his/her beat.
The reporter must be comfortable with a range of story materials, from feel-good features to the gritty sides of politics, courts and business. The reporter must have a digital-first mentality, engaging readers with timely reporting and social media. Developing relationships within the community will be crucial.
While you will work with editors and others, you will be independent in your pursuit of story ideas and sources.

Both openings will require experience with digital cameras, video and social media platforms. Candidates for both positions should have a bachelor’s degree in journalism, communications, writing or comparable field.
To apply, submit a cover letter, résumé and three writing samples — as well as any photo samples — to Managing Editor Andrew Nash at anash@morningsun.net.
