DREAM JOB OPEN… well, not my dream but I know plenty of guys that would kill for Jason LaCanfora’s gig covering the Redskins beat for WaPo. The post is up for grabs because LaCanfora just landed an on-air spot with the NFL Network. WaPo memo below:
After five years of outstanding work on the Redskins beat, Jason LaCanfora is moving on to the world of television sports journalism. He’s taking a job as a correspondent with the NFL Network. Jason’s departure leaves a gaping hole in one of the core beats not just for Sports, but also for the entire newspaper. We are looking to fill it with a reporter who is willing to work long hours on a demanding beat in a highly competitive environment. Candidates should be able to file game stories on tight deadline, break news on-line and in the newspaper and write the occasional feature or player/coach profile.
If interested, please contact Matt Vita or Peter Perl by Monday, June 15.
