MEDIA REPORTER WANTED
Are you a storyteller? Do you enjoy doing research and learning why things do or don’t work? Do you possess a passion for sports radio, TV and digital and enjoy connecting with people who represent the industry’s top brands? Can you comfortably share your findings on a story even if the review isn’t positive and ruffles a few feathers?
We’re looking for a reporter for our website who enjoys digging into various media issues and uncovering the pros and cons associated with each story. We’re more interested in a strong weekly/bi-weekly feature piece rather than quick, easy daily content that doesn’t uncover anything new. You should have contacts, familiarity with the sports media industry, and possess a natural curiosity for why things are done a certain way.
If this sounds like you, send your resume and references by email to JBarrett@sportsradiopd.com. Please be sure to include a few of your writing samples as well.

A familiarity with WordPress is a plus as the work does include uploading content to the back end of our website, and adding tags, titles, images, and headlines.
You should be available for a few hours each day during the M-F work week, and be capable of working fast and accurate, taking direction, and being a good teammate. This position is part-time and doesn’t come with a set hourly schedule. If money is your sole motivation this isn’t the job for you.
