Description:

Are you ready to continue a long tradition of award-winning sports journalism?

The Graphic Printing Company, which operates The Commercial Review (Portland), The News-Gazette (Winchester), The News Times (Hartford City) and The News and Sun (Dunkirk) in east central Indiana, is looking for an energetic, motivated, passionate sports journalist to join its team as we fill a position being vacated by a longtime sports write who is retiring after 40-plus years.

Our next sports reporter will work 35 hours a week as part of a sports team — it includes president, editor and publisher Ray Cooney and sports reporter Andrew Balko — that covers 10 area high schools across five counties in our coverage area. You will also continue to follow local athletes who are competing at the college level and write about area club sports and activities.

This job includes game/event coverage, feature writing, column writing, photography and some page design. (Photography and page design experience are not required. We are willing to train.)

The Graphic Printing Company has proven to be an excellent training ground for young journalists. The newspaper regularly finishes in the top three for general excellence in the Hoosier State Press Association Better Newspaper Contest.

The candidate we are seeking will have writing experience covering sports at the collegiate and/or professional level. Recent college graduates are encouraged to apply.

Send your resume and three examples of your work to editor and publisher Ray Cooney at r.cooney@thecr.com. The deadline is May 28.

When applying, mention you saw this opening listed at JournalismJobs.com.
