Job Type


Are you ready to continue a long tradition of award-winning sports journalism?

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

Our next sports reporter will work 35 hours a week — teaming with editor and publisher Ray Cooney, who served as sports editor for 12 years and is back in that role — to provide outstanding 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 and some photography and page design. (Photography and page design experience are not required. We are willing to train.)

The Commercial Review has proven to be an excellent training ground for young journalists, with former staffers working at the Associated Press, the Indianapolis Business Journal and various other news outlets. The newspaper regularly finishes in the top three for general excellence in the Hoosier State Press Association Better Newspaper Contest.

The candidate we are seeking will have writing experience covering sports at the collegiate and/or professional level. Recent college graduates are encouraged to apply.

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