Description:

MULTI-PLATFORM JOURNALIST, SPORTS COPY DESK

The York (Pa.) Daily Record/Sunday News is seeking a multi-platform journalist to work for both our copy desk and GameTimePA.com. You will join our award-winning staff of journalists who cover high school sports, Penn State football, Atlantic League baseball and more in southcentral Pennsylvania.

We are a digital-first newsroom that focuses on being the first and best provider of the news that our readers need, across all platforms.

The seven-day Daily Record/Sunday News has a daily circulation of 55,000 and Sunday circulation of 88,000.

As a copy editor, this journalist will handle daily print and digital publication of content from three newsrooms – York and our sister papers in Hanover and Lebanon.

In addition to pagination, our copy editors handle the posting of local and national news across all digital platforms; posting and curation of social-media content; moderation of live chats; the posting of content to our blogs, and much more. Our copy editors are journalists and content creators and play a vital role as such in our department.

We are specifically looking for a copy editor with a strong background in multimedia and digital-first reporting, to serve as a part-time member of our GameTimePA.com coverage team. Responsibilities would include shooting, editing and posting video; coordinating GameTimePA special sections and projects; and some reporting and writing. We are seeking candidates with experience in producing video.

This is not just another copy editor position. While candidates must have solid copy-editing and pagination skills (we use Harris for page design), we are foremost seeking a digital-first journalist who understands the tools and mindset that will be needed for newsrooms to move forward and succeed during this time of unprecedented transition for our industry.

If you have questions or are interested in applying for this job opening, contact Sports Editor Chris Otto at cotto@ydr.com (preferred) or mail resume and materials him at York Daily Record/Sunday News, 1891 Loucks Road, York, Pa., 17408. EOE.
