Sports copy editor, Tallahassee, Fla.

Discussion in 'Journalism Jobs' started by Sunshine Scooter, Dec 27, 2007.

  1. One of two jobs open. From jj.com

    Openings for copy editors on combined news and sports desks, one with a particular emphasis on sports in Florida's state capital city and home to two major universities: Florida State and Florida A&M. We have just installed a state-of-the-art news system, using InDesign. Successful candidates must be comfortable in working in high-pace, innovative workplace. Please submitted your resume and a cover letter to bgabordi@tallahassee.com.

  2. I would like to recommend this job to someone, but I don't know diddly about Tallahassee. Although for a college town/state capital, $30-35K seems on the low end. Anybody know anything, like whether it's a design or copy editing job, or both?
  3. All I know is that Jim Lamar is one of the nice guys in the business. As for the paper, I don't know.

    Stay away ... stay far, far away. The paper has gone in the crapper since Gannett took over and the editor is someone you'll never want to work for. As for the sports section, if you like a rah-rah tone, and lots and lots of space devoted to youth baseball, then it's the hell hole you deserve.

    But other than that, Mrs. Lincoln, how was the play?
  6. Thanks, Great. I'll pass along your comments, with the suggestion that he keep looking.

    I wasn't referring to Jim in terms of the editor from hell. I was referring to the editor of the paper from whom you would receive constant meddling and veiled threats when things weren't done to his satisfaction. Jim's an OK sort, but he's rah-rah-rah for the home team.

    Be prepared to write a lot of "NCAA investigation" headlines ...
