    I don’t know if they’ve posted it yet, but they’re looking for an enterprise reporter as well.

    The last sentence of the first graf says "In the offseason, this reporter will handle enterprise stories and general assignment work."

    Are they hiring an additional person just for enterprise?

    The difference between journalism in 2015 versus 2018. Sad.

    I’m gonna hijack for a second but what about the digital sports producer job? Is that still open? And where should someone send stuff to?

    It's still open, but zeroed in on finalists. Doesn't hurt to send stuff, however. Can also email to matthew.glenesk@indystar.com and nat.newell@indystar.com
