    according to a friend in the news dept., the job never got filled last time around. evidently there's a departure this time and they are desperate to fill.

    Why are they having trouble filling the job? Is it not a very good paper?

    This paper posted three newsroom openings in the past two weeks. Judging by the sheer number of job postings at a paper this small, their entire staff must turn over about every three months.
  7. maybe it's a work co-op program
  8. Go, from what I've heard this place is as bad as it can get. I'm friends with someone who worked there as a news reporter a couple of years back and was fired for no apparent reason. The editor brought this guy into his office and said he was being fired because said editor just didn't like him. How about that one?

    Plus, has anyone seen the design of this paper. Their idea of a good layup is to fit about 8-10 stories on a page around a postage stamp side centerpiece picture. And forget about graduating headline sizes. That doesn't happen here.

    i've heard the same thing. management here is beyond awful. evidently the turnover occurs because the ME keeps firing all the people he hires.

    Outside of the publisher, editor and features person, anyone on this staff legal to even drink?

    Their news editor looked so professional, too, wearing that baseball cap.

    I mean, the majority of my newsroom is young, but there are the few aging hippies and guys that time left behind around to veteran the place up.

    The city editor looks like when someone mentions the '92 election, he has to say "Well, I was 5 at the time, so ..."
