Sports Reporter

Yuma, AZ

Full Job Description

The Yuma Sun, a daily newspaper located on the Arizona/California/Mexico border, is accepting applications for a sportswriter who is ready for the challenge of maintaining our excellent local sports coverage. The right candidate will be a talented journalist with a demonstrated ability to write and shoot photos. We’d like to find someone with some experience, but we are willing to train recent college graduates.

Our team members are expected to design vibrant, reader-friendly pages, write clear and compelling headlines, be sound editors of copy, handle social media posting and shoot and edit video. You must be able to work collaboratively with the other members of our newsroom. Our staff covers eight competitive high schools, a recently renovated race track, and Arizona Western, one of the premier junior colleges in the Southwest. We also don’t shy away from community sports, everything from 8-year-old MMA aces to 88-year-old golfers.

Our region offers immediate access to off-roading, hiking, camping, fishing and hunting. Housing prices are reasonable. We offer an exciting environment in which to continue to grow as a journalist and leader, as well as a variety of benefits such as health insurance and paid vacation time.

If you are up to the challenge, send us your resume and three to five clips.

Yuma Sun is a drug-free workplace and EOE.
