Former Sports Reporter at GateHouse Media/Wicked Local
almost 2 years ago
Typically I would go to the office for an hour so to meet up with my editor, or I would simply email or text him. I was in constant contact with my editor. I would receive 1-3 games to cover each week. I would go one hour before the games to speak with coaches and players and then I would stay 30 minutes after the game to speak with them again. Typically I would have to submit the game day pieces the day it was covered. I would also take pictures and stats during the game. In addition to game coverage I also would write 1-2 feature pieces every 2 weeks. The deadline for feature pieces varies, but it was typically 1-2 weeks.
