    The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review seeks an editor to lead aggressive coverage of high school sports. A strong high school report is vital in our sports-obsessed area, which includes some of the country's best prep programs. The editor will oversee seven full-time writers and manage copy for five daily editions. Applicants must have strong word and organizational skills. A sense of competition is equally important in this two-newspaper city. Weekend and night shifts are required. Applicants must have supervisory experience and at least five years at a 50,000-plus circulation paper. The Trib, circulation 200,000 and growing, is based on the city's North Shore, between PNC Park and Heinz Field. Pittsburgh is a terrific news area and affordable place to live. Send resume and work samples to: Mark Gruetze, Administrative Editor, Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, 503 Martindale St., Pittsburgh, PA 15212. E-mail: mgruetze@tribweb.com.

    Another big-boy job, I believe. [/crossthread]

    This job was open last year as well, if I recall, but I don't know if the position was frozen: I thought Jerry DiPaola still held the job.

    If this is the job I'm thinking of, then I know the guy who's leaving (not DiPaola). Good man and a straight-shooter who I worked with at a previous paper. Believe he's heading back to his home area.

    Wasn't it Bryan? He was there like less than a year, wasn't he? Where is home for him?

    Interesting. I interviewed for this spot right before I got an offer from FanHouse, liked the people there a lot and probably would have taken it IF an offer had come (not a certainty). They did get a very good person for the job.

    Going to Pittsburgh in two weeks for some Braves-Pirates baseball, staying in the same hotel they put me up in when I interviewed.

    Was really surprised when I visited Pittsburgh. Didn't expect the area to be so awesome.

    Pittsburgh's really underrated, and I love the ballpark there. The Stillirs fanbois can be grating, however.

    "Applicants must have supervisory experience and at least five years at a 50,000-plus circulation paper."

    This probably seems strange, but I'm compelled to say it, I love when places slip something like this into a job ad. When on the job hunt it always irked me when big-boy jobs failed to list any sort of qualifications, allowing many under-qualified applicants (often including myself) to convince themselves the world could stand on its head and they could have a shot. Bravo for concisely hammering out standards.

    (I honestly know nothing about Pittsburgh or the job, other than that it looks top-notch. Good luck to all who apply)

    I echo the love for Pittsburgh. Fantastic city. Both papers are really good at what they do. P-G could use a redesign, looks a little old-school but I can live with it as long as the coverage is strong.

    Just opened a new casino on the North Shore called The Rivers, which is first-rate. City has great neighborhoods... out by airport is nice... and of course, there's Primanti Bros.

    It's not the Pittsburgh of the 80s. It's very much a modern metropolitan area with cool architecture, maddening streets that lead to impressive views (Nothing like popping out of the Fort Pitt Tunnel and catching downtown Pittsburgh in all of its glory), and quality people who love their Steelers a bit too much.

    Great place to live and work.
