    With Adam Teicher now with ESPN, McClatchy posted his previous job today:


    The Kansas City Star has an opening for Reporter – Sports News (Chiefs)

    The Sports Department of The Kansas City Star is looking for a full-time Chiefs beat reporter. This is an extremely competitive beat covering the most-followed professional sports team in Kansas City.


    Qualifications include prior experience covering a major beat (college or pro) at a mid- to large-size daily newspaper, proven sourcing and interviewing skills and ability to write in/for a range of styles and platforms, including social media, breaking news, blogs, profiles and authoritative analysis.

    Superb paper. Gotten a little thin in recent years (what paper hasn't?), but KC Star loves its sports coverage. Just reading the football sections now. Another good job... you'll be treated well.
  4. The sports staff at the KC Star is terrific. It's McClatchy-owned so keep that in mind — lots of recent layoffs and current furloughs. Still a great gig and Kansas City is a fun town.

    This is one where I filled out the application just because it's one of those jobs you are crazy not to put your name in for.

    That said, I'm waiting for a much bigger name to emerge as the winner...

    May do the same thing, Brian. You never know. If someone else on staff gets the NFL job, it could create a new opening down the line.

    Jeff Rosen seems awesome to work for, too. Last year I left him some clips just because I was in town to cover an event. He got back to me with good feedback and honest assessment -- the good news was that he thought I was one career step away from being ready to jump to a place like the Star. The bad news is a year later I still haven't taken that step. But maybe that could be done by filling the shoes of whoever leaves elsewhere to get this gig.

    They promoted from within to fill the Chiefs beat. The Star's SE Jeff Rosen tweeted congratulations to Terez Paylor, who previously covered the Missouri beat.

    Paylor followed up with an announcement: https://twitter.com/TerezPaylor/status/375399835806883840

    So just a guess, that means the Mizzou beat will be open at some point very soon.

    Terez Paylor? Sounds like some dyslexic parent meant to spell "Taylor Perez" on the birth certificate.

    Word is, Missouri beat was an in-house promotion as well. We may be looking at a prep opening, but I can't swear to it.
