Country Media is looking for one full-time (40 hours per week) sports reporter to handle sports coverage for both the Curry Coastal Pilot in Brookings, Ore., and the Del Norte Triplicate in Crescent City, Calif. The papers are published two times a week — Tuesday and Friday.

The position provides print and online coverage of high school and community sports plus outdoor activities in the two communities that are roughly 25 miles apart. We’re looking for a writer to produce sports and outdoor features, write game stories, take photos and post content online.

A journalism degree is preferred. Reporting experience, polished writing skills and a track record of accuracy and reliability are a must. Experience using social media, including Facebook and Twitter, is preferred.

Many of the duties of this position require evening and weekend availability.

Brookings and Crescent City have populations between 6,000 and 7,000 and are located on the coast. There is abundant outdoor recreation, including hiking, mountain biking, hunting and fishing.

This is a great opportunity to grow with a company that believes in the value of community journalism. This 40 hours per week (hourly wage) position offers many benefits including health insurance and paid time off. Good driving record and reliable transportation required.
