    This will be posted soon. Wanted to give those interested a head start.

    Knoxville News Sentinel, a daily morning newspaper in East Tennessee, has an immediate opening for page designer. Full-time job involves designing the sports section three to four days a week. The E.W. Scripps product has a circulation of 120,000 daily and 150,000 Sunday. Contact executive sports editor Steve Ahillen at ahillen@knews.com.

    Just a bump. We are still looking at candidates.

    Every time I see an opening in Knoxville, I always hope it's a writing gig. As always, no luck. :(

    Of course you could always learn design. Problem solved.

    That might be the problem in itself.

    Bump. Any news? Heard they had narrowed this down to a couple folks. Is Scripps' hiring freeze still active?

    We have been told the position will be open in February. Yes, there is a hiring freeze, but positions can be filled on a need basis. We're just waiting in line like the planes at Hartsfield. I think management believes there's less work in sports when football season is over.

    Saying a design position can be filled on a need basis is like saying the world can fill its latest Britney Spears offspring position on a need basis.
