Description:

The Hillsboro Banner in Hillsboro, N.D., is looking for a sports editor to cover sports and a little news for our weekly publication.

The Banner is a three-time Best of the Dakotas award winner, having been named best small weekly twice and best mid-size weekly once (our numbers are growing) among all North Dakota and South Dakota weeklies.

We are a family-owned publication that has won more than 300 awards in our state's Better Newspaper Contest the past six years.

We live in a town of 1,600 so the summer sports season is light. If there are no games or meetings on Fridays we close the office and pretend we are normal people. Salary in the 20K-25K range but we also work a number of four-day work weeks.

Hillsboro is roughly 40 miles north of Fargo, N.D. and 35 miles south of Grand Forks, N.D.

To apply, send a cover letter, resume and writing samples to: Hillsboro Banner, c/o Editor Cole Short, PO Box 39, Hillsboro, ND 58045 or email materials to hbanner@rrv.net. We also can be reached by phone at 701-636-4241.
