The right Sports Editor candidate will be able to do it all — organize print design, produce online, manage statistical databases, develop social media outreach, write in various story forms, and more. You have to love Little League as much you love LeBron (or used to love him).

All that remains is for the right person to make it all happen.

Pay, benefits and health coverage are consistent for our size. The position is available immediately.
Youngstown is a scrappy region that sits between Pittsburgh and Cleveland. Our sports history ranges from Mancini to Stoops to Tressel to Dravecky to football’s first use of the penalty flag. We’re home to D1 sports, as well as hockey and baseball franchises.
