The Athens Banner-Herald,part of the USA TODAY NETWORK,is looking for an energetic, enterprising reporter to cover high school sports in the sports-oriented community of Athens, Ga.
The Banner-Herald covers 17 high schools which routinely compete for state championships in football, basketball, baseball, wrestling, soccer, softball and other sports. There are also dozens of high-level college recruits spanning multiple sports annually, but notably a high number of top-notch, nationally relevant prospects in football and baseball.
With those things in mind, we dont seek run-of-the mill coverage. Our readers want something more meaningful, and we need a reporter who can hunt down those stories.
Friday nights in the fall are a huge part of the community, and breaking news is important -- but enterprise stories are the heart of this beat. Interesting stories that take place off the field in and around Athens are essential to success. That means meeting sources, talking with parents and getting the pulse of our community.
Recruiting, student-athlete life, coach pay and team travel, among many, are opportunities for this reporter to put into perspective for readers.
Athens, Georgia, is a college town with a vibrant culture. Known for its music and of course football, Athens has a wide range of activities, festivals, dining, breweries and more for its residents. Athens is located in North Georgia, about 1.5 hours northeast of Atlanta.
This role requires a valid drivers license, reliable transportation and the minimum liability insurance required by state law.
