    Lynn Hoppes posted this over on the Ed Hinton thread, but I didn't want it to get lost in the shuffle.

    Oh, I suppose I'll ask the question ... how many NASCAR events would this reporter cover? And, of course, the GA part ... is that enterprise, or fill in the gaps stuff (No. 3 guy at a NFL game, No. 2 or 3 at a bowl, etc.).
  3. Usually Orlando Sentinel job threads get heavy traffic and replies. Not so with this one. Is there a reason?

    I think it got played out on the previous thread with everyone blasting Tribune for the NASCAR decision. Regardless, this does sound like an interesting position.

    I would imagine that this job would entail about 10-15 races a year, but that's a guess on my part.

    Whoever gets this job better get used to hearing...

    "He's nowhere close to being as good as his predecessor..."

    I love the Sentinel, but their golf and NASCAR coverage (both of which used to be outstanding) have taken brutal hits in the last six months or so...

    It's sad...
  7. I know someone who would be perfect for this. Hopefully he has already sent in his materials. He is a contributer to the board, but screen name escapes me at the moment.

    any rumblings of movement on this one so far?

    I'd be very impressed if it's still 10-15 races. Maybe 10-15 races every 2-3 years.

    What about Chicago? Heard they were honing in on someone locally?
  11. I guess I missed the day when the Orlando Sentinel started sucking.

    This sounds like a swell job.

    Then you missed the multi-page discussion that resulted when the Sentinel's upper management decided that Ed Hinton is somehow not worth what he's really worth.
