Light and Champion seeks Sports Correspondents

The Light and Champion is seeking sports correspondents to assist in our coverage of Shelby County and Logansport High School Sports. 


We are looking for reporters and photographers for our coverage in Logansport, Shelbyville, Timpson, Tenaha, and Center. 


Correspondents are independent contractors who are paid on a per game basis. Adults or high school students are eligible, although minors will need parental consent. 


Reliability is essential. Once you commit, you cannot miss games or story deadlines which are each Monday. 


Knowledge of sports scoring and terminology is important. While writing is preferred, we are willing to train. We are also open to working with schools for class or internship credit. 


Interested parties should e-mail Reporter Dillan Payne at with a cover letter describing your interest in being a correspondent and a resume.
