    Media General’s Consolidated Editing Center (CEC) in Richmond, Virginia, has an opening for a versatile, deadline-oriented sports copy editor who can also design a page in a pinch.

    Richmond, the capital of Virginia, is a growing region that is near the beach, the mountains and the nation's capital, and our work is growing, too. Our innovative new center has a broad footprint - with branches in Richmond and Tampa, Fla., we handle page design and editing for MG's three metro dailies: the Richmond Times-Dispatch, The Tampa Tribune and Winston-Salem Journal.

    We are seeking a team player who can edit and design quickly and cleanly on deadline. You need to be a strong communicator who can balance overlapping assignments and deadlines, and experience with the CCI system is a plus. Several years of newspaper experience is preferred, but less will be accepted if you have excellent skills.

    Apply by April 11, 2011. Go to http://jobs.mediageneral.com and select Job ID# RNI-001163 from the pull-down menu. You will be asked to register (just to select a login and password), and you can attach to your online application a single file that has BOTH your resume, cover letter and work samples. EOE M/F/D/V Drug test and background check required. e-Verify is used upon hire to confirm eligibility for employment in the U.S.

    "Near the beach" is a bit of a misnomer. But whatever.

    The CEC was not in place when I was there, but I can tell you the people who work there are good people. I can't/won't say anything about those above them. But really good folks on that editing crew.

    IJAG, it's only 108 miles to Virginia Beach, and a few miles shorter depending upon where you go. Management at the T-D has been questioned but name a place where management hasn't been questioned? Staffers are a good mix of veterans and some not too veteran.

    Some a-hole must have taken one of their desk people to create an opening.

    Um, other places have nothing to do with this. I said I wouldn't say anything about those higher, because I haven't been there in three years. But keep talking like you know shit.

    WTF? Your quote "I can't/won't say anything about those above them." would lead one to question managment.
    ANYWAY, it's a pretty good job in a pretty good town.

    Richmond as a town is fantastic. Couple really cool parts of town, and it's within a day's drive of a ton of stuff. I miss it.

    Also, Capital Ale House. :D

    And a sailor or club sandwich at Phil's Continental Lounge. Yum.

    I think I know some people who hopefully still have jobs there after long careers with the T-D.

    Phil's is a nice place, but they make an awful Irish coffee.

    I got a fingernail in a club sandwich at Phil's once. Haven't been back since.
