    Have a friend who lives there now. Absolutely hates the town.
    Don't know a lick about the paper, though.

    I've heard the same thing about the town, but StL isn't terribly far away. As for pay? Probably low 20s if that.

    why hire a writer when you can hire a photojournalist?

    might be shitty otherwise, but the town is on the river and STL or Chicago are easy to do in a weekend. Football team was in the state championship two years back.

    Mediocre small daily but about 90 minutes from St. Louis. Good spot for a recent grad to get in, do some good work or network at state events and then get out.

    Low 20's. Would that be sufficient in Hannibal? This is coming from a soon-to-be graduate, sorry it seems like a trivial question.
