    In Kansas, generous salary is $20,000 a year. They got a good junior college football team, though.

    If you're straight out of college, yes. If you've got some experience, it might be more like $25,000, depending on the paper you're talking about.

    It would be more than that.

    Lotta turnover at that paper, but rest assured, it's for one reason - location. The SE, ME and publisher are all great people and good to work for.

    I bet it's not much more than that. 20-22K sounds about right for a salary, especially entry-level.

    If you're single, it's enough.

    what about salary if one were to land the job at the paper, as well as the job at the AM radio station.

    Unless you have a car payment, insurance, student loans and other things to worry about. Then it's not enough.

    The cost of living isn't bad out there. You can find some really good apartments for less than $400.
