    Company: Pittsburgh Tribune-Review
    Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
    Job Status: Full-time
    Salary: Negotiable
    Ad Expires:
    January 14, 2008
    Job ID: 862918

    The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review seeks an editor to lead the night sports staff. This position is the No. 2 job in the sports department of an aggressive metropolitan paper. We cover it all in a sports-obsessed area, including three pro teams, five Division I universities and some of the country's best prep programs. Applicants must have strong design, word and organizational skills. The editor must be able to meet multiple production deadlines and manage change. A sense of competition is equally important in this two-newspaper city. Weekend shifts are required. Applicants must have supervisory experience and at least five years at a 50,000-plus circulation paper. The Trib, circulation 200,000, is based in one of the few American cities with competing, independently owned newspapers. Offices are on Pittsburgh's North Shore, between the Pirates' PNC Park and the Steelers' Heinz Field. Pittsburgh, named the country's most livable city in 2007, is home to several universities and has a thriving arts scene. The Trib is an equal opportunity employer. Send resume and work samples to: Mark Gruetze, Administrative Editor, Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, 503 Martindale St., Pittsburgh, PA 15212. E-mail: mgruetze@tribweb.com.

    They're eliminating snappy recent college grads from the outset. In a way, I guess it's nice to be specific so that the rejection letter doesn't seem like as much bullshit as most. Oh, and those of you at an award-winning under "40K" paper, blame your circulation department for knocking you out of the running on this one.

    That doesn't sound like a Deputy job.
    That sounds like a desk job.

    A lot of ASE jobs are desk jobs thesedays though.

    Surprised to see this opening. Is Mike Orfanopoulos leaving?

    That was my guess. That has been his job for a while and he is still currently listed as Deputy Sports Editor. Mike was a desk guy before he moved up, so it makes sense that they want a similar background.

    Anybody with questions about the place, I'd be glad to answer. PM or on here.

    Obviously, if you work at a paper smaller than 50,000 circ, you couldn't possibly be qualified. I mean, once you start at a small paper, you stay there for life, where you should be.

    That struck me as odd, too, but I think they have had that in a lot of job listings of late.

    But somebody might want to remind them that their Executive SE came directly from a paper with a daily circulation that was below 50,000 at the time. In fairness, I highly doubt that he had any control over the ad.

    That's what they always put in their ads, especially for the frequent ads for news-side copy editing folk. It's their way of stopping people from small-time rags from applying.

    They hired someone on the news copy desk from Altoona a couple years ago, and the Mirror's circulation is just north of 30k.

    Which is pretty funny, when you think about it. Unless something has changed dramatically, the Trib's pay scale would only appeal to people from small-time rags.

    I'm not sure if the sarcasm font should be on, but it's kinda snooty of you all to be refering to so many under-30k circ papers as small-time rags.
