    Hi everyone,

    Yes, we've got another digital position open. We're still in the process of filling the high schools sports digital editor gig. Tons of great applications. Thanks to everyone who has applied.

    This night-time job just came open within the past few days. The person who currently has this job has an opportunity outside of journalism that he simply can't turn down.

    The job description for this opening is pretty straightforward. Like I said with the high schools job, Dallas is a great place to live and work. Our company continues to invest heavily in our digital products, especially sports, which is a huge segment of DMN's digital traffic.

    If y'all have any questions let me know. Thanks for your interest.
