The Keene Sentinel, an independent, family-owned news organization serving southwestern New Hampshire, seeks an enthusiastic and creative full-time sports writer. We want a talented and resourceful person who plans to shine while giving our demanding readers coverage of two successful NCAA programs, seven high schools, a wildly popular college wooden-bat summer league team and loads of community sports in sun and snow. The Sentinel is engaged in exciting new directions in news and sports, both print and digital, and features an engaged, lively newsroom. The ideal candidate will help establish the proper balance among myriad content possibilities. The goal is to grow readership and embrace new ways to reach readers while preserving the company’s long commitment to quality journalism. The Sentinel publishes throughout the week on its various digital platforms as well as in its six-day print newspaper, and all staff share in the generation of digital and photo content. The job also entails desk work; layout and design experience is a plus, but we can provide training.
The Sentinel is an equal opportunity employer and offers a competitive salary, a comprehensive benefits package and an excellent working environment.
