    Here's the URL for a memo about the Los Angeles Times hiring of someone two years out of college to cover the Los Angeles Clippers: http://www.laobserved.com/archive/2007/09/larry_stewart_off_tvradio.php#more

    How much will he be making? $100,000? More?

    Less would be my guess, just because of his lack of experience.

    Todo lo que toma para escribir en un periodico grande de la ciudad debe aprender espanol? Bueno que no sabe espanol.

    Los Angeles Times has been long known for its high salaries.

    No one is paying a kid less than 2 years out of college 100K to cover the Clippers.

    I'm guessing somewhere like $25,000. For someone living in Los Angeles.

    At my shop, he'd get $18,000 a year.

    No. The $18,000 a year figure is what we pay entry level reporters at my shop.

    I'm trying to think of what I'd realistically pay a cub reporter at The Los Angeles Times based on his experience and what I know of the business. I doubt they'd pay $50K a year to a kid essentially just out of college.

    I only use blue when I really am being sarcastic. Better than my old <sarcasm></sarcasm> "HTML tag."
