    Wow. Desk? Has that gone universal?

    Can the second part of this be correct, "Bradley oversaw a staff of 35 when he arrived at The Bee. Today, he oversees five reporters and a columnist."

    My gut feeling is that it has a Sacramento Kings beat writer (Sam Amick, according to the 2009-2010 NBA Blue Book) and Ailene Voisin. Wouldn't it still have at least one person on local colleges -- UC Davis and Sacramento State -- at least one high school sports reporter, and a beat reporter for the Pacific Coast League baseball team?

    Does it have anyone on any other professional or Division I college beats as it once had?

    Sam Amick is at FanHouse.

    Layoffs/buyouts etc. shouldn't come as a surprise in Sacramento after the same thing just happened at Miami and Kansas City. But your sports editor? Ugh.

    A 279,000 circ has five reporters, a columnist and a sports editor for the entire sports section!?! Hell, some 40k papers have that many on staff.

    Well, 215K daily and 265K on Sunday, but point made.
