    They mention the Philadelphia pro teams, but you never know how long that's going to remain a big part of things there. What's the word? Reason to be careful on this one?

    Anyone here anything on this one yet? Is it typical gannett-land there?

    This can be a really good job.
    Previous sports editors went to (among other places), Baltimore Sun, Washington Post, Florida Times-Union, Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel.
    Visible Gannett paper that won Gannett-wide honors for World Series coverage in 1994. Space is an issue, but where isn't it an issue?
    Unless things have changed since I was there (mid-1990s), Phillies coverage is ALL games, home and away (some away trips shared with Gannett sister paper in Cherry Hill, N.J.), Eagles coverage is home and away, UDelaware coverage is home and away (the Fightin' Blue Hens are not to be missed), Baltimore Orioles coverage is home only.
    And they have a minor-league team in the Carolina League.

    I'm pretty sure they no longer cover the Orioles.

    If they don't, they might want to resume it. Lots of Baltimore/Washington folks fleeing over the border now that real estate prices are starting to climb (at least for now) in northeastern Maryland.

    Yeah, if they don't cover Orioles now (probably a cost-cutting move), they might want to reconsider.
    The News Journal does, or did, have a Cecil County, Md., edition -- the first edition of the night. Those are all Oriole fans. The Delaware market stretches from the very strong Ph-phillies and Iggles influence in the north to Baltimore and Maryland interest in the south and the southeast. It goes from a very urban market to nothin' but rural farms elsewhere -- with a NASCAR track and a really big military airbase in Dover thrown in.
    Awesome seafood at restaurants on the Chesapeake, by the way.
    And working at The News Journal, you can afford it. Pay is pretty decent.

    Born and raised in Wilmington. My hometown paper. Would love this job except for my pesky total lack of any design and layout credentials. Credentials, hell, knowledge.
