Description:

The Messenger is seeking a sports reporter who can help our small daily and associated weeklies broaden and deepen our coverage of high school and recreational sports.

The successful candidate will have newspaper experience and be organized, knowledgeable and passionate about community journalism. Required skills include the ability to produce clean copy, take photographs using our state-of-the-art Nikon DSLRs, and function without a great deal of close supervision. He or she will work as part of a two-person team that covers several high schools.

The Messenger is a six-day daily in Madisonville, Kentucky. We are part of a growing, family-owned chain of more than 30 daily newspapers and numerous weeklies. Madisonville is located in Western Kentucky, and is less than an hour from the paradise of Land Between the Lakes National Recreational Area and just over an hour from booming Nashville, Tennessee.

We offer pay commensurate with experience, company subsidized health, dental and vision insurance, paid time off and other typical benefits.

To apply, email a cover letter explaining why you're the right person for the job, a resume, and three to five clips to Editor Mike Alexieff at malexieff@the-messenger.com .
