    If you get an interview, leave the Gator cap at home.

    I'm confused about the nature of this position. Because if it's writing, video, etc and maintaining the website that's a huge responsibility.

    Are you the only writer? Do you have help?

    My guess is you collaborate with the regular staff. Just a guess.

    Brandon has been hired at the Clarion-Ledger. We hate to see him go, but we're glad for this opportunity for him.
    That said, I don't know a lot of the specifics of this position because they don't work for me, but we do work together a lot. We just launched a revamped preps-only web site (arpreps.com) that Brandon was very instrumental in building and that is an ongoing project. This will be a position that is heavily involved in covering the University of Arkansas and does require travel for football and maybe some other sports. We have several employees both in Northwest Arkansas and Little Rock who are involved in web content, so this person is not the only one who maintains the web site.

    This one has been filled. Mat Jones, who writes for Hawgs Illustrated magazine, will be taking over for Brandon.
