Description:

Faribault Daily News is looking for a sports reporter, but we won’t settle for the ordinary. We need a reporter who’s equally comfortable writing an enterprise piece on booster clubs’ finances or a feature on a top prep athlete. Occasional design work is also part of the position.

The successful applicant will have insatiable curiosity about all kinds of sports and recreation (not just prep athletics), an excellent grasp of interviewing and writing techniques and a demonstrated knowledge of how multimedia enhances reporting. Reporters who thrive on writing only gamers need not apply.
 

Other requirements include:

- Four-year post-secondary degree in related field, or comparable practical experience in a work environment.

- Experience using social media

- Experience using InDesign

- Technical competence with Word and Web-based content management.

We offer a competitive wage and benefit package, including paid vacation, health, dental and disability insurance and 401(k).

Faribault Daily News is part of APG Media of Southern Minnesota, a division of family-owned Adams Publishing Group. APG operates newspapers, shopper and niche publications, printing plants and digital agency services throughout Minnesota, Wisconsin, Ohio, Maryland, Wyoming, Idaho, North Carolina, Tennessee, Michigan, Oregon and Washington.

To apply, send cover letter, resume and clips to Regional Editor Suzy Rook at srook@faribault.com.
