The Grand Junction Daily Sentinel, circulation 28,000, seeks an ambitious, efficient, enterprising sports reporter who will double as a sports copy editor. The average split of the duties will be 60 percent reporting, 40 percent copy editing/page design, but duties will vary as needed.

We have about a dozen area high schools in our coverage area along with an NCAA Division II university. The variety of outdoors and recreational sports to cover in Western Colorado is impressive: cycling (road and mountain); skiing (downhill and cross country); hunting; fishing; golf; rodeo; hiking; snow-shoeing; rock climbing; ice climbing; off-roading; snowmobiling; and more. We cover them for work and do some of them on our days off.

Colorado residents are preferred.

Applicants must:

• have at least three years of full-time experience as a sports reporter or a copy editor, preferably with experience as both, for a daily newspaper.

• be efficient, able to juggle coverage of sporting events with constant development of feature and enterprise stories.

• meet daily and weekly deadlines as a reporter and meet nightly deadlines as a copy editor.

• have the desire to push themselves to greatness.

Pay is competitive, benefits are good, winters are mild, and outdoors enthusiasts call this area heaven.

If interested, impress our sports editor by keeping your cover letter short and letting your writing clips and page designs do the talking. Send them to: Sports Editor Tim Harty at No calls, please.
