The Salt Lake Tribune has an immediate opening for an enterprising, entry-level reporter to cover high school sports.

The successful candidate will be The Tribune’s primary prep sports reporter year-round, working with an assistant sports editor and a cadre of correspondents. A commitment to multiplatform sports journalism is essential; the job requires aggressive reporting and solid writing for print as well as www.tribpreps.com. Blogging is part of the job, as is adept use of social media to build sources and audience and interact with both. The reporter we hire will join a veteran sports staff that sets the agenda in Utah for all beats.

APSE consistently recognizes The Tribune’s Sports section as among the top 10 in the nation in its circulation category; most recently we earned APSE’s prestigious Triple Crown for daily, Sunday and Web excellence.

To apply for the job, email a cover letter, resume, clips or links to work online, and social media handles to managing editor Lisa Carricaburu, lisac@sltrib.com.
