    Wonder if Ja’s recent run is spiking the number of applications

    Probably so. Don't remember this much excitement around the team even during the Zbo days. Also FWIW I saw this reposted again on Indeed this week, so I'm assuming they're still taking applications.

    Yes you can email me. I am the hiring manager. But I do point out that it asks above that all material be included in one document.

    I will not be reaching out to all candidates. Frankly, there are too many to do so. I do not have a firm timetable on this -- the process will take as long as needed to identify and land the right candidate. If I do a phone or later line up an in-person interview, I'll reach out to you at that time.

    It does, but I applied on the Indeed application prior to see this post on here. Thank you for the help.

    I'm curious how much travel is involved with this position, especially in light of that recent news The Oklahoman no longer covers every Thunder road game. (FWIW, I didn't see the interim beat writer for Memphis posting from Boston on Wednesday. But maybe he just forgot the dateline?)

    Code for, management hasn't approved a hire. Gannett shop probably won't make a move for a month yet.

    Studthug should stop talking out of his ass, since this position has been approved.
    Maybe Tommy just prefers to be thorough, especially coming off the Titans’ deep playoff run.

    Well duh this is a position that will be filled and would be approved, but probably "frozen." Been quite a few Gannett smaller shops - so not applicable here - where they approved hire, was frozen, and ultimately no one was hired and the job went away.

    Posting is no longer listed on the Gannett site. For the more experienced bunch on here, would I be right to assume they're moving on to the next step?
