Company: The Minot Daily News
Seeking sports reporter
North Dakota
Job Status:  Full-time
Ad Expires: 
September 26, 2014
Job ID: 1486807



The Minot Daily News, a 19,000-circulation, seven-day newspaper in northwest

North Dakota, seeks a full-time sportswriter to complete our three-person staff.

Recent graduates will be considered.


The region features competitive prep athletics along with two junior colleges

and Minot State University, an NCAA Division II school in the Northern Sun

Intercollegiate Conference. We also cover the Minot Minotauros, a junior hockey

team in the North American Hockey League.


The new hire will primarily cover preps. There are about 40 high schools in our

coverage area (for the three in-town schools, we cover games regularly; the

others we touch on in features and notebook items). Occasional opportunities to

cover Minot State and the Minotauros will also be available.


We focus on writing clean, concise copy and also take our own photos.

Photography experience is preferred, but we would train the right applicant to

use a camera. Layout duties for our sports department are simply formatting

scores on our scoreboard page once or twice a week.


To apply, send your resume and five clips to sports editor Ryan Holmgren at, and please put "Sports Reporter" in the subject line.
