    The Baltimore Sun is looking for a content editor to oversee enterprise. The candidate must be able to generate enterprise ideas and get them on A1, and use social media to promote our stories. He or she must be a strong word editor, willing to fill in as the sports slot on the copy desk on occasion. You will also be taught how to produce the website. If interested, contact Ron Fritz, sports editor, at rtfritz@baltsun.com.

    Ron's one of the people I respect most in the business. He'll be as upfront with you as anyone about questions about the company, etc. So, yeah, this is a Gold Seal Job.

    First The State posts a Sunday sports editor job, now The Baltimore Sun posts a enterprise editor. You'd almost think newspapers were healthy. I worry about both of those positions being luxury jobs, the first to go when the ax swings.

    Wasn't this Chris Korman's job? Where to?

    I'm going back to reporting and will be working on the business staff, covering the business of sports. I'll also continue covering the Triple Crown.

    Feel free to contact me with questions about the job, staff, city, etc.

    Chris, based on my research (a Google search of your name), the job description accounts for about a third of your current duties. What's the deal? Will the hire also be required to take over the Toy Department blog and handle the Sunday section?

    The Toy Department died when we switched blogging platforms. There's a new general interest sports blog, Baltimore Sports Blitz, that could be this person's responsibility depending on how Ron decides to do things.

    I haven't really handled the Sunday section over the past year or so because I managed our Ravens coverage last fall. We've since hired a new Ravens editor, and one of our slot editors has taken on some of the Sunday planning duties.

    The deal, really, is that Ron will mold the job somewhat to the skills/desires of the person hired.

    So this is more of an editing/idea position than a writing position?

    Yes. You won't be dissuaded from writing, especially for the blogs. But it's an editing job.

    Appears filled by former news writer Childs Walker. He did some sports stuff in the past.

    This job is actually still open. Childs is back in sports as an enterprise reporter. We're still accepting applications for enterprise editor.

    If anyone has questions about the position, feel free to PM me or shoot me an email at mbracken@baltsun.com.

    Think you'll have to beat out Gus Haynes for this one.
