Milwaukee Journal Sentinel -- Green Bay Packers reporter

    The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel is seeking an experienced, versatile, hard-working reporter to join our team that is covering the Green Bay Packers.

    The ideal candidate will be an excellent reporter and writer adept at developing sources; writing with insight, clarity and flair; juggling the demands of breaking news for both print and online; blogging and interacting with readers through various social media; and embracing new forms of technology and media that help the Journal Sentinel expand its audience.

    The Journal Sentinel's team on the Packers beat includes veteran reporters Bob McGinn, Tom Silverstein and Lori Nickel. The ability to work with them and others in a collaborative and complementary way is important.

    Applicants for this job also must be aware that covering the Packers and the NFL is an arduous year-round job, with off-season mini-camps, free agency, the draft and training camp all very important to readers in addition to the season itself. A strong work ethic is necessary. Experience covering the NFL is preferred but not necessary.

    The job is based in Green Bay and the person filling it will be expected to live in the Green Bay area.

    Apply to Michael Davis, Assistant managing editor/sports and digital development, at mdavis@jrn.com

    If the rumors were true about what Dunne was making, this job might be in the San Diego range of pay.

    USA Today called him, FWIW. The second Olean (N.Y.) Times Herald alumnus they've hired, joining Rachel George.

    Pretty sure there is a sizable cost of living difference between, say, Escondido and Appleton.

    I had a hell of a week one night in Appleton.

    I'm assuming they're looking for a vet here, but I don't really know the context, so I'll ask a stupid question: How old was Dunne when he got hired? Do they generally seek new talent and promote from within, or are they looking for an elite guy on this one?

    They won't hire an elite guy. They don't have the $$$ to do that. I know someone who turned down the chance to interview for the job when Dunne got it because they weren't offering enough.

    My guess would be that they'll be looking for someone like Dunne, young, cheap and hungry.
