Contributor Needed: News Editor

Due to my impending entry into the realm of fatherhood, I’m transitioning out of my role as News Editor for Red94 and looking for a replacement.

Duties of the positions include:

  • Writing the Rockets Daily (Monday-Friday)
  • Posting breaking news updates such as major trades and acquisitions, career altering injuries, and epic Twitter beefs (kidding on that last).
  • Coordinating the schedule of recaps and previews throughout the season (trickier than it sounds).

Qualifications include:

  • Command of the English language
  • Familiarity with the NBA blogosphere
  • News judgement
  • Obsession with basketball
  • Humor (optional)
  • Time (mandatory)

If you’re interested, send a writing sample (hint: send a sample version of a how you would write the Rockets Daily) along with some background information on yourself to

And in case you’re wondering, I’ll continue writing periodically for Red94 after the position is filled.
