    This is not a sports job. But if anyone is interested, you can feel free to PM me.

    We're looking for another news-side reporter, too.

    Robert's good people, who loves Mexican food. He really cares about Danville, which is why he's been at the R&B for a long, long time.

    Whomever lands this gig will have some very big shoes to fill. The outgoing assistant editor, Charles Wilborn, did a little bit of everything and kept things running smoothly through a difficult transition period. Charles easily worked 60 hours a week, maybe more, and always took his job home with him (and even on vacation). He will definitely be missed in Danville.
    In the interest of full disclosure, though, "beautiful Southside Virginia" is a bit of a stretch. Danville had double-digit unemployment even before the recession, and it's only gotten worse. I'm not discouraging anyone from going after this job; just do it with eyes wide open.
