    The original post has turned into anything but a posting about this potential job opening. So, for what it's worth, another SE in the Cox chain told me that the position is likely to be filled by a former sports writer on that staff who left sports about a year ago. But, that's purely speculation.

    For those interested, I haven't seen a job posting yet and it's possible the job won't be posted. However, if they do open it up, this would be a nice place to go. Longview is a nice town to live in, about 60-70K and close enough to Shreveport and Dallas. Great gig for preps as this is East Texas football at its best from the small schools on up.

    The staff is small and they try to cover a fairly large area despite the small staff and limited resources. But they are partnered with other Cox papers, so copy sharing does exist. And back when I lived there (but didn't work at this paper), they did very little travel.

    If anyone has anything constructive to add to this post, jump in. Hopefully this thread will stay on the job opening.

    Longview's about 80,000-85,000 with a circulation in the low 30,000s.

    Look, from now on, all newspaper jobs will be either eliminated or filled inhouse. It's spreading from what I hear like a bad flu. Publishers and their beancounter buddies don't deserve the air they breathe.
