Varsity sports multimedia reporter
The USA Today Network seeks a digital journalist to cover varsity sports and beyond in compelling, intriguing and unique ways for the Bucks County Courier Times.
This reporter will own prep sports coverage, building a beat that is focused on storytelling, not events and games. This reporter will produce high-impact journalism that answers the why or how, not the what. Games can still be important and results still matter but that isn't our focus. This beat will emphasize recruiting, issues, news, trending stories, videos, live coverage, championship moments, players off the field and more.
An average week of coverage could include a compelling human feature, mobile-friendly content such as varsity rankings or Athlete of the Week polls, live tweeting and video highlights from high school football, a look on the relationship between AAU basketball and varsity teams or a deep dive into the life of an elite athlete.
The ideal candidate will produce an entire package story, photos, video, podcast, etc. or tell the story on whichever platform fits. This journalist will use analytics, search engine optimization and other tools to really understand and target the right audiences.
A strong video and photo background is a must. This reporter will use social media channels to build a personal brand as the communitys leading voice on sports in the area.
This reporter will serve readers across the state, as a part of a Pennsylvania sports team, with stories that transcend specific teams and schools. This reporter will cover news stories as seasons and needs permit and will go after breaking or trending news with urgency.
This position is Monday-Friday, with the occasional need to work weekends.
The Courier Times is located in Levittown, Pennsylvania, just 25 minutes from Center City Philadelphia. Its a diverse and dynamic community in Bucks County that offers a small-town flavor with all the conveniences of suburban living near the city. Its home to some of the citys most knowledgeable and most loyal sports fans.
