Winter sports/Olympics reporter, Salt Lake Tribune Oct. 2, 2012
The Salt Lake Tribune has an immediate opening for an experienced reporter to cover winter sports and the Olympics. Salt Lake City was home to the 2002 Winter Games and plays host to frequent World Cup-qualifying and World Cup events. Many Olympic athletes live and train in the area. The reporter we hire also will cover Major League Soccer and 2009 MLS champion Real Salt Lake.
As Utah’s leading news source, The Tribune sets the state’s news agenda across all beats, and provides resources and support to enable its staffers to perform at the highest level. Solid enterprise and investigative skills are essential, as is a commitment to multiplatform journalism.
The Tribune’s Sports section is a consistent APSE Top 10 section in its circulation category; most recently we earned APSE’s prestigious Triple Crown for daily, Sunday and Web excellence. Our expectations are high but so is our commitment to quality sports journalism.
