Job Type


The Commercial Review, a five-day-a-week newspaper in Portland, Indiana, is looking for an energetic, motivated, passionate sports journalist to join its team.

The sports journalist we hire will focus on coverage of athletics at our local high schools. You will also continue to follow local athletes who are competing at the college level and write about area club sports and activities. This job includes game/event coverage, feature writing, column writing, photography and page design. (Photography and page design experience are not required. We are willing to train.) We have a versatile staff, and we work together to make our product the best it can be.

Our next sports reporter will work under editor and publisher Ray Cooney, who served as sports editor for 12 years, and follow in the footsteps of Chris Schanz, a two-time finalist for Hoosier State Press Association Photo of the Year.

The CR regularly finishes in the top three for general excellence in the Hoosier State Press Association Better Newspaper Contest and has taken the top prize twice in the last decade.

The candidate we are seeking to help continue that success will have writing experience at the collegiate and/or professional level, an inquisitive nature and a desire to work hard to become a more well-rounded journalist. Recent college graduates are encouraged to apply.

Send resume and three examples of your work to editor Ray Cooney at
