He/she will work in Nashville, one of the most vibrant and fastest growing cities in the country and home to the NFL, the NHL and the SEC. While the focus of the beat will be mainly the NFL/Titans, the selected candidate will also write on other local, regional and statewide teams.

    sophisticated content in a variety of formats on the Titans, the Predators
    and other loca/regional sports to help grow audience.
  • Provide leadership on developing audiences
    on Facebook, Twitter and emerging social platforms.
  • Display creativity in everything from
    developing enterprise story ideas to writing SEO-friendly headlines to
    sharing content socially to having an eye for images and video.
  • Be among the strongest reporters and
    storytellers in our newsroom, able to write quickly and with voice, and
    also bring a sense of fun to the job.
  • Be comfortable appearing on camera and in front of a crowd.
