  • Have a solid understanding of Ohio State athletics.
  • Have a unique voice and the creativity to come up with offbeat, fun stories about the Buckeyes.
  • Be able to produce and edit clean copy.
  • Be comfortable working in a remote environment.
  • Previous sportswriting experience is preferred.
