Part-time Sports Writing Job at Marshall Independent

Mr. Joe Brown, the sports editor for the Marshall Independent, is looking for a part-time sports writer. The job would mainly be answering phones about three nights a week. The person would take calls from high school coaches, who phone in the scores of their games and statistics, then write a very short summary of the game. The usual work schedule would be Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday from 8 p.m. to midnight.

While Mr. Brown would prefer someone with journalism experience, he mostly wants to fill the position, so someone could be trained in, too. There's a pretty set formula for writing the game summaries, so it becomes routine quickly.

If you are interested in the position, please contact Mr. Joe Brown at:
