IMMEDIATE OPENING: The Pine Bluff Commercial is looking for a sports reporter/page designer to complete our three-person staff.

Before applying, please review the requirements for the position:

  • We are looking for someone who has at least two years of continuous experience in sports journalism (must have worked for a newspaper or college publication for  the past two years); experience in public relations is NOT a substitute for this requirement
  • We are looking for someone who is familiar with paginating on Adobe InDesign, preferably CS4, and wouldn’t mind running the desk on Saturdays during football season if asked
  • We are looking for someone who would help us build stability in the sports department, not someone who is trying to stay here for less than a year and move on; the experience here will be well worth the time
  • We are looking for someone willing to immerse himself/herself in covering prep sports in our area with opportunities of Division I and II athletics available with the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff and UA-Monticello.

If you do not meet ALL of these requirements or are hoping to land this job in search of a pay raise, PLEASE DO NOT APPLY.

To apply, send resume and at least three writing pieces and two examples of layout to or to: I.C. Murrell, Pine Bluff Commercial, 300 S. Beech St., Pine Bluff, AR 71601. Any applications not meeting the minimum pieces/layout examples will not be considered. ABSOLUTELY NO PHONE CALLS PLEASE. Considerations will be made  within two weeks of the posting of this ad.
