The sports reporter would collaborate with journalists to strategically guide coverage and ensure our storytelling reflects our mission and audiences.

It will be essential to dig into issues and look for unique stories no one else is telling. What you'll do : * Provide sports coverage of high schools in the area. * Use metrics to create storytelling that accurately informs, entertains and engages specific audiences and platforms. * Become the community's leading voice for sports coverage. * Connect with the community through storytelling and outreach (social media, on camera, forums, community leadership, etc.). * Collaborate with content team to provide all the appropriate elements for stories (i.e. photos, videos and graphics). Capture photos and video as needed. * Provide thoughtful analysis of sports issues. * Provide great customer service, helping readers find answers and solutions. * Use live video to spotlight breaking news and high interest events The Times Record News, a part of Gannett, Inc. and The USA TODAY Network, pays competitive salary and excellent benefits.
