Company: Waseca County News
Seeking top-notch sports editor
Job Status:  Full-time
Ad Expires: 
October 1, 2013
Job ID: 1524262


Waseca often thinks of itself as a baseball town, but these days, you're just as likely to find local kids on the pitch.

Wasecans take their sports seriously, as well they should. Our coverage area includes three high schools with teams that play at a highly competitive level, and several section and state champs. 
But the community embraces far more than traditional athletics. We want someone who can write a great narrative on Friday night’s Bluejays football game and then turn around and give readers a strong feature on a local Paralympian or an enterprising look at what area schools spend on their coaching staffs. 
We want the complete package: Someone who leads with his or her writing, photography and multimedia experience.
If you’re a sports reporter who understands that sports is more than an advances and gamers, we want to talk to you. The Waseca County News is a 2,000 circulation weekly about an hour south of the Twin Cities and we’re looking for a top-notch sports editor.

The successful applicant will have insatiable curiosity, an excellent grasp of sports and a demonstrated knowledge of how multimedia enhances reporting. Special consideration will be given to candidates who have experience using social media.

We are a family-owned cluster of 16 publications, eight community websites and Facebook pages and a regional magazine. All are aggressive, watchdog-oriented papers with newsrooms full of talent. Besides the Twin Cities, Waseca is about an hour south of the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport, Rochester and the Mayo Clinic, Mall of America, eight state parks and more than 100 recreational lakes and other top attractions. Benefits include health care, dental, life and long-term disability insurance, a flexible spending plan, vacation and 401k. Send your resume and no more than five of your best clips to Suzy Rook, Managing Editor, Waseca County News, 213 Second St. NW, Waseca, MN 56093. Email it to No phone calls, please. The County News is an equal opportunity employer.
