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 jeby901@gmail.com.

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

    I appreciate the votes of confidence, but I must pass on the opportunity. There is just no way I could commit to those obligations responsibly.

    :(
