  • Sports correspondent needed

     The LaRue County Herald News, a 4,600 circulation weekly newspaper, is looking for a correspondent to cover LaRue County High School sports.

    Good communication with coaches, players and newspaper staff is a must. The ideal candidate would have their own photography equipment and be able to provide photos with their stories. However, it is not a requirement.

    Payment will be on a per-story/per-photo basis.

    Some travel outside LaRue County may be required during tournament season.
