    A jack of all trades position. How is Charleston, not a bad place to live? Looks like a nice small town in the mountains and on a river. How's the turnover here?

    Charleston residents tend to skew poor, and it is one of the most polluted cities of its size in the US.

    Other than that, the party never stops!
  5. Charleston is the hottest place in the state. 10 degrees hotter than anywhere else. It's in the valley. A chemical valley.
    However, The DM is a very good paper, with a lot of good people. A lot of fun folks to work with.
    It's a large city with a lot going on, but it's in the southern part of the state so If it ain't in Charleston it's gonna be a drive to get there. Cincy and Pittsburgh are a haul.
    Turnover is prolly average, but a lot of its reporters (who choose to stay in biz) move onto bigger papers and better jobs.
