NEWS WIRE SERVICE Editorial Assistant - Here's your chance for a full-time position at the nation's largest regional wire service, covering Los Angeles, Orange, San Diego and Riverside counties. While City News Service reporters and editors cover all the top breaking news, our subscribers also depend on us to let them know - in advance - about major planned news events. And that's where you come in.

Just about all of the TV stations, national TV networks, major newspapers and news-oriented radio stations in Southern California, as well as numerous websites and other digital media, rely on the City News Service Budget when making their coverage decisions. Most of your job will be writing and putting together the CNS Budget that lists all major upcoming news events for each week and each day. Accuracy and meeting deadlines are extremely important. Our subscribers are making significant coverage decisions based on your work. There may also be a very small part of the job involving some clerical duties. This opportunity is a great introduction to a professional newsroom at all levels. And it will be a great first step in your journalism career.

You'll be working in our West Los Angeles main editing center, and thus you must already live in the Los Angeles area. We prefer an undergraduate college degree and some experience in journalism or your college newspaper.

If this sounds as if it's the position for you, immediately email your resume - with cover letter - to lori@socalnews.com. City News Service (www.SoCalNews.com) is an equal opportunity employer. Because of the number of applications, we may not be able to respond to every applicant.
