Company: The Daily Republic
Position:
Sports reporter
Location:
Mitchell, South Dakota
Job Status:  Full-time
Salary:  Not Specified

Description:

The Daily Republic, a six-day daily newspaper in Mitchell, S.D., is seeking an energetic sports lover to report, design pages, shoot photos and manage web content as part of our three-member sports staff.

This is a great opportunity for a young journalist, but applicants will be expected to have a college journalism degree and a solid knowledge base. If you're a recent college graduate, we'll be looking for strong experience at your college newspaper. That experience should include lots of writing, and also some page design and photography. If you were heavily involved in the sports section for your college newspaper, or if you have some professional experience in sports journalism and are looking for a new challenge, this could be a great opportunity for you.

The Daily Republic has a print circulation of about 10,000 copies and reaches about 70,000 people monthly at mitchellrepublic.com. At this year's state newspaper convention, The Daily Republic won Best Website among all South Dakota dailies and a fifth consecutive General Excellence award in the small dailies circulation division.

Sports coverage opportunities include about 35 high schools in our area, one NAIA university in Mitchell, lots of summertime Legion and amateur baseball, an annual professional rodeo, and three local/area natives playing in professional leagues (Mike Miller of the Cleveland Cavaliers, Chad Greenway of the Minnesota Vikings and Riley Reiff of the Detroit Lions).

To apply, send a cover letter, resume and work samples to Sports Editor Brooke Cersosimo at bcersosimo@mitchellrepublic.com. Only the applicants chosen for interviews will be contacted.
