    David Ching is leaving to take the sports editor's job in Athens, Ga.

    So I am looking for an Auburn beat writer.

    I am looking for someone with experience covering a major college beat, someone who can break news on a highly competitive beat. You will also be expected to produce features, analysis and enterprise. If you have some multimedia experience, that will be a big plus.

    You would be expected to live in Auburn.

    It is a job I need to fill immediately, so if you are interested, please send me an e-mail to kprice@ledger-enquirer.com

    If you sent me an e-mail last month for the high school opening, you don't need to resend your stuff.

    If you have other questions, send me a PM and I'll be happy to answer what I can.

    I just sent you an e-mail. Not for me, but for a guy I HIGHLY recommend.

    Edit: That dude got a job. Good for the place that hired him. :) I am sure Kevin will lock down someone NICE.

    15 years ago this ad would have made me breath heavy into a paper sack.

    If only I was qualified ...

    Ditto. Never covered a major beat, because I have never covered a major beat before. Classic SJ catch-22.

    I would so be your man if it didn't require such a drastic change of address in such a short amount of time. I am kicking myself in the forehead right now b/c of bad timing. Oh well, maybe something else will happen in the future. Best of luck.

    What are the specs of the paper? Circulation? Good Company to work for? Worth Moving to Alabama?

    It's a McClatchy paper. As for circulation, here are the ABC numbers:


    That'd make it the fifth-largest paper in the state, behind the AJC, Macon, Augusta and Savannah.

    Dude, it's Auburn football. Of course it's worth moving to Alabama.

    I think the circulation is in the 50,000 range. Could be wrong, though.
