    anyone want to chime in with how to deal with the salary requirements question? I've been told up and down to ignore it...so I did. Thoughts?

    Salary requirements: Flexible.

    And never include salary history. Talk about an attempt to low-ball potential employees. If a place likes you that much, they'll bring you in despite lack of salary history. If not, no big loss for you.

    Does anyone know what this kind of job might pay? I don't live in New York, so I'm clueless what journalists make in the Big Apple... any help would be appreciated.
