The Roswell Daily Record is accepting applications for
a sports writer and paginator to join our newsroom.

The primary job responsibilities include coverage of local high
school sports, posting stories to our website and social media, and
designing pages for our sports section, often on tight
deadlines. Experience with InDesign is highly preferred. Video editing
experience is also desired, but not required. Social media proficiency
is a definite plus.

We have several public and private high schools in Roswell and Chaves
County, including the New Mexico Military Institute, and a loyal
following of demanding readers who can’t get enough local sports. The
job can be challenging, particularly on Friday nights, when several
local football games are being played at once. We have several
photo stringers that pitch in, but solid sports writers who can write
colorful game-day stories on tight deadlines with comments from coaches
and players are our primary concern.  Our readers expect excellent
local sports coverage, and we must deliver it daily in print and

There’s never a shortage of stories, as we often venture out of the
typical sports reporting routine and cover events such as local drag
racing, boxing, Little League and semi-professional baseball. The Roswell
Invaders help to keep us busy in the summertime.

We are in immediate need of an experienced sports writer to help us cover the fall sports season and beyond.

The position offers medical benefits, a gasoline allowance and compensation for travel outside the immediate area.

We’re a family owned, community-oriented, award-winning daily
newspaper in southeastern New Mexico that publishes six days a week.
We’re also one of the most famous newspapers in the world, thanks to the
1947 Roswell incident, and what we’ve accomplished since then.

If you are interested in joining our aggressive news team, please
send a cover letter, resume, writing clips and page design samples to [email protected].

Submissions can be mailed to: Roswell Daily Record, Attn: Barbara Beck, P.O. Box 1897, Roswell Daily Record, NM, 88202. No phone
calls please.
