The Lincoln Journal Star is looking for a prep sports writer/multimedia reporter ready to tell the stories of players, programs, coaches and competition in compelling ways – both traditional and cutting edge. We’re looking for someone with experience in – or a passion to learn – writing, data reporting, video and podcasting. The prep athletes of today are the collegiate stars of tomorrow, and Lincoln is the home of the Huskers, so recruiting draws huge readership, sometimes well beyond the audiences garnered by profiles and game coverage. All the resources available for our award-winning Husker coverage are available to elevate our prep sports storytelling. This position will lead the charge – with support from many – in covering football, basketball and a range of other sports.


We’re looking for a reporter ready to embrace new tools to elevate our prep reporting and to make it even more immediate and visual. With talented photographers and editors and state-of-the art tools, there’s lots of room to create new content while honing one’s skills at some of the more traditional aspects or sports journalism.
