Baytown Sun sports copyeditor/sports reporter

    The Baytown Sun, a 10,000-circulation daily newspaper, has an immediate opening for a sports copy editor/reporter. The job entails nightly desk work -- meaning pagination skills are essential -- and includes juggling multiple stories in a deadline-driven atmosphere. Versatility is the name of the game here. Our readers expect major league coverage of high school sports. To apply, send resume, cover letter and clips to David Bloom, managing editor, 1301 Memorial Drive, Baytown, Texas 77521 or email to david.bloom@baytownsun.com

    Anybody have info on this paper? Close enough to Houston to be cool, but I've heard Pasedena referred to as Stinkadena with all the chemical plants in the area.

    Baytown is disgusting.

    That is all.

    Baytown is right by Pasadena. Same chemical plants and refineries. Part of Houston metro on the eastern edge. CNHI.

    Do the math.

    It's actually part of Southern Newspapers, any thoughts on that chain?

    I stand corrected. I was wrong on two counts. First, I thought it was one of the Houston Community papers, which it is not. Second, I thought that Houston Community papers were associated with CNHI, which they are not.

    But I'll say this: It LOOKS very much like a Houston Community paper. Which means you'll cover Baytown area preps and Baytown Lee Junior College and not UH, Rice, the Astros, Rockets or Texans...

    I've known of people working here and "graduating" to the Huntsville Item, to give you an idea of where it stands...
  6. Baytown = full of fail.

    And it smells.

    Versatility is the name of the game? I thought it was Baytown.

    Just to point out, many people confuse Lee High School (Baytown Lee) and Lee College (LC).

    Baytown Lee, which produced Drew Tate and Quentin Coryatt, if I'm not mistaken, is called the Ganders. LC's Runnin' Rebels are members of arguably the best JUCO men's basketball conference in the country, NJCAA Region XIV.
