    If anyone has any questions on Tulsa or this opening, shoot them my way or post below. I'll answer to the best of my ability. The opening came about because one of our copy editors is moving to our web staff.

    And, to clarify a couple of things:

    1) We run a universal desk, so versatility is good. But we could really use someone with strong sports knowledge.

    2) While the ad calls for page samples, that won't be a big part of the job. You'd likely only do inside pages. Our designers handle our section fronts.

    I do not know much about Tulsa, but I would highly recommend working with sports editor Michael Peters. He has one of the most creative minds of anyone I've ever worked with and he will let you do a lot of very fun things.
