Candidates should have at least five years of experience covering professional sports in a competitive market and should have enough NFL contacts to be able to impactfully deliver local and national stories, produce a weekly NFL notebook and blog on the newspaper's Web site. Please send resumes, clips and references to Sports Editor Hank Hryniewicz at firstname.lastname@example.org and Deputy Sports Editor Mark Murphy at email@example.com. The Herald is an EOE
Predictably begets this:
It’s been days since John Tomase of the Boston Herald has written an article on the Patriots, and weeks since he’s posted a blurb on the newspaper’s online NFL blog.
Now, a reader has pointed out to us that a job covering the Patriots has been advertised at JournalismJobs.com.
Tomase has been villified in the wake of his February 2008 report that the Patriots videotaped the Rams’ walk-through practice prior to Super Bowl XXXVI. The Herald has since retracted the story, and Tomase apologized for the error.
Tomase has been covering the Red Sox of late.
