    I don't know a lot about this job, but at one time the Whig-Standard had a good reputation as a launching pad for a lot of journalists who went on to bigger and better things. Also had a good reputation for a paper of its size.

    Guess you would cover Queens, OHL's Fronts, hockey, RMC and high schools. I doubt you would cover Ottawa pro stuff.
