The Athens NEWS is seeking a Sports Writer
The Athens NEWS is looking for a talented sports journalist to handle our coverage of (mainly) Ohio University major sports (football, men’s and women’s basketball, and some volleyball) during the 2017-18 school year. This freelance position produces regular part-time income during the playing season, with two or three articles per week. We are seeking a reliable and skilled sports writer/reporter to produce analysis/opinion articles for our print editions (which also appear in our website) based on facts, rather than straight game stories. Some attitude is welcome. For our website, we would expect short “gamers” (300 words more or less) to post within an hour or two of each game. The analysis articles would appear in our Monday and Thursday editions through each sports season. Get an idea of what we’re looking for by perusing our regular-season football and basketball coverage at www.athensnews.com.
If you’re interested in this position or have questions, please email Athens NEWS Editor Terry Smith at email@example.com.
