Sports Reporter – New Orleans 

The Advocate seeks an experienced beat writer to cover the New Orleans Saints. 

We’re looking for someone who knows how to work an NFL beat. We need someone who can do it all — breaking news, film study, great enterprise stories, great features, multimedia, the works! 

Since our entry into the New Orleans market in 2013, we have slowly earned our reputation as a go-to destination for Saints fans and football junkies who want the complete package.  Our section has been routinely recognized in recent years as one of the best in its class. The Advocate won an APSE Grand Slam in 2018 and a Triple Crown in 2017. Our department has set a high standard, and we must continue to meet it. 

We need someone who can come in and take over. Experience on an NFL beat is not required but certainly preferred. 

Compensation: base pay and benefits package (health, dental, life, disability, vision, 401k with company match, vacation, holidays and sick time).
