    Might be some people from the Arizona Republic interested in this gig.
  3. I know that if you work for the Trib, you aren't allowed to go to the Republic for one year after leaving. Not sure if that works the other way around, though.

    And yes, the Trib is very serious about enforcing the non-compete they started making people sign in 2002 or so.

    I think in some areas the Trib beats up on the Republic, at least in sports. McGruder is the better D-backs writer, and Jerry Brown (columnist/Suns) is very versatile. Trib dominates preps, but that's likely because the Republic doesn't focus on the high schoolers very much. Design wise the Republic is superior though. By far and away.
  6. I always thought the Trib offered better Cardinals coverage too, but then again, I was willing to read stories about the Arizona Cardinals, so my judgment is clearly suspect.

    If by "Design wise the Republic is superior though. By far and away." you mean that the Republic makes gamers look like features, overplays stories and drastically underachieves on special sections for the staff and resources that they have, then sure.

    I know someone in the Trib's entertainment section. I'll see what he can tell me about this place.

    It's hard to compare the preps in the Trib versus the preps in the Republic. The Republic focuses on the entire Valley, and to a lesser extent, the entire state. The Trib is all about the East Valley. They only overlap in Mesa, Scottsdale, Chandler, Tempe, etc.

    DesignGuy, I only meant that aesthetically The Rebuplic looks better. For example if you had never seen the two papers before and both were sitting in a news rack, I think the Republic would catch more people's eye. Also, I should have been more direct about the high school coverage. The Trib focuses mainly on the East Valley although they have expanded to schools such as Phoenix St. Mary's in the last year or two. But they dominate the preps coverage in that area, mostly because Les Wilsey has been on the beat for years. It's rare that the EVT gets scooped on preps. And I do recall the EVT beat The Rebuplic on that Wally Backman hire and fire, heavy on the fire. Suns coverage goes to the Rep. Paul Coro is a machine. Now the town just needs a qaulity columnist. Sorry Bordow, Bickley and Boivin (though I think she is the best of the three) are average.

    And Ben Seaver knows better than to read about the Cardinals. For shame.
