The Saratogian, Record and Community News is looking for a sports editor to lead coverage for two daily and one weekly newspaper.

The sports editor is responsible for scheduling coverage and doing pages along with coverage of various sporting events. We are looking for a self-starter who can manage others and come up with creative ways to boost our sports coverage online and in print.
