The York (Pa.) Daily Record/Sunday News is seeking an Assistant Sports Editor to join three other managers in leading an award-winning staff of journalists. The staff’s primary areas of local coverage are high school sports (25 area schools), Penn State football and the Atlantic League’s York Revolution.
The Daily Record/Sunday News has a daily circulation of 55,000 and Sunday circulation of 88,000.
We are seeking a production-oriented manager to lead us in great work across all platforms, print and digital. We produce three print sports sections each night (our own and two MediaNews regional sister papers) and we also aggressively update our online sites – www.ydr.com and www.GameTimePA.com (our company’s regional high school sports website).
Our assistant sports editor will keep us at the leading edge of online, mobile and social-networking coverage and innovation.
This editor will work night shifts and have both weekend days off every other month.
The ideal candidate will have experience as a copy editor (both deadline stories and enterprise projects) and page designer; will have experience with web publishing and blogs; will understand and embrace the role of social networking in sports journalism; will have some previous management experience; and will be a great team player and leader who can help us coordinate daily deadlines, breaking news and big projects that stretch across multiple newsrooms in southcentral Pennsylvania.
This is a challenging but rewarding sports management position and is a terrific opportunity for someone looking to lead a group of great journalists and implement fresh, innovative ideas in a digital-first media environment that is constantly evolving.
