Openings @ Lousiville Courier-Journal

The Louisville Courier-Journal, a 220,000 circulation newspaper in Kentucky, has the following openings:
  • COLLEGE REPORTER: In the short term, will serve as the back-up reporter on the Louisville and Kentucky beats, primarily on basketball and football. Will also include some non-revenue sports and general assignment work. However, we have been considering splitting up U of L football and basketball, which would result in an additional beat job. We’re looking for a seasoned college reporter who is adept at everything from game stories to take-out features, who will pay attention to athletic department finances as well as free-throw pecentages, who can schmooze boosters and trustees as well as assistant coaches. Prefer three to five years beat reporting experience at a medium-sized daily.
  • DESIGNER/COPY EDITOR: We have full-time designers and copy editors. We need someone who can thrive and supervise in both areas at night and who can oversee the night desk at least a few times a week. Copy editing skills must go beyond editing for grammar and style. We’re looking for someone who can also work with reporters on content and structural issues both in special sections and in nightly trouble-shooting. Prefer five years desk experience at a medium-sized daily.
