Description: Sports Editor

We are seeking a talented, outgoing and dependable sports editor who can thrive on the central Oregon coast.

We’re a twice-weekly newspaper with a collaborative newsroom staff of seven people and a print circulation of about 7,000. You would join that team as editor and writer of the sports section, keeping up with the sports teams at six local high schools as well as the recreation scene in our beach community.

You’ll need strong time management skills, as our sports editor juggles the schedules of multiple teams and ensures that our coverage is equitable across Lincoln County. You should also be confident writing engaging features on individual coaches and players.

You should have a well-rounded skill set in your arsenal and be able to produce dependable content on deadline.  Photography and people skills are a must, as is experienced with page layout on Adobe InDesign.

Candidates should have at least one year of sports journalism experience. We will consider recent graduates with a college newspaper background.

We value a work/life balance, but games don’t always happen between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. You’ll sometimes need to work over the weekend depending on team schedules.

Starting salary range is $30,000 to $35,000 per year.

Include a resume and cover letter explaining why you are the best candidate for the job. You should also include six clips of your best recent work, including:

  • Three writing samples
  • Two layout samples
  • One photography sample

Above all else, we want somebody who shows up — someone who knows how to cultivate sources, put in face time and build the kinds of relationships that lead to the best coverage. If that sounds like you, please apply via email to Editor Calley Hair at
