    Those budget meetings must be absolutely brutal.

    Internal Cox newsletter sent out a couple weeks back listed Ramos in one of about eight department heads position. Forget what his actual responsibility was. Jeff D'Alessio, currently an ASE, was also listed as one of two responsible for working with beat "teams" on a daily basis.

    Intersting move for Rana Cash -- Newsroom recruiter?

    I believe she had just been promoted to ASE.

    "Any word on where Ramos is going? I thought he did a great job at the AJC."

    Birdscribe can chime in on the print-side sports editor, Kevin Whaley.

    That's just my personal opinion. Maybe it is more his writers (Steve Hummer, Tony Barnhart, Jeff Schultz) that I like. But having lived in that area for much of my life, I always thought he knew what the readers wanted.

    A little too much NASCAR for me, though. But I'm just not a fan of driving in circles.

    So Rana Cash went from Georgia Tech beat writer to ASE to newsroom recruiter? Man, they shuttle more people from writers to editors than any paper, I think.

    Indeed I can.... excellent editor, good guy. Best word editor I've ever had the honor of working with.

    That list, however... wow. My head is spinning trying to figure out what exactly everyone does and who they answer to. This looks like a food chain without beginning or end.

    I'm not sure if it is the same at the AJC, but a SWAT editor is a roving position. If the Falcons are in the Super Bowl, they move to Sports. If CNN announces 250 layoffs, they move over to National or Metro. They move to the hot spots.
    That said, never seen it work. It becomes political. Some section, some project is always behind and the SWAT editor(s) aren't available when you need them.
    It's a "pie-in-the-sky" and works at ideological Utopias? Anyone ever see an ideological Utopia in the news-gathering industry?
