    Supposedly Stephens wanted to fill this one before he fills the national job, but obviously there will be more gossip on that job than this one.

    It would seem like a good idea for the colleges editor to help pick the national college writer.

    You should PM Tim Stephens directly. I'm sure he would respond.

    One of the reasons these jobs are still open is because Orlando is telling candidates it will not pay for them to relocate.

    I haven't even heard names on this job - anyone know who has interviewed?

    Wow. Makes one optimistic about how much the job pays, too.

    I heard an editor from a small paper in Florida interviewed. You guys can figure out who it was, assuming it's true.
