    fantastic paper for its size. tulsa is a cool city, too.

    last i remember the desk in tulsa is well-staffed ... about eight full-timers (designers and copy editors) on the desk.

    You guys beat me to posting this. If anyone has any questions, send me a message and I'll answer as honestly as I can, and I'm a pretty honest guy.

    And chase is right, eight full-timers and a part-timer, nine full-time if you count me, though my duties have shifted some lately and I don't spend as much time on the night desk as I used to.

    So they've posted two job openings after they cut a copy editing job in layoffs last year?
    Talk about poor planning.

    I don't know about Tulsa's economy, but it might have rebounded a bit. More and more papers are saying they're in the black (ya, how they GOT there is a whole other story) and Tulsa might be one of them.

    tulsa is definitely in the "good-looking" side of oklahoma. they work hard to create a product that showcases a lot more than their current circulation (around 100,000, I think?).

    you're about an hour and a half from oklahoma city, which has a decent downtown and the thunder.

    and if tulsa gets the 2020 olympics, well, you're set. :)

    Provided there's still a newspaper.

    I should've read this thread more closely last night when I posted. One of those openings that 2much posted above came from May 2008, not May of this year. We had an opening in April, which came because one of our copy editors, Sarah Hart, left the sports department and was promoted to assistant Scene editor. We've had some changes on our desk since the first of the year, but we're in pretty good shape right now. I can't say there won't be any other changes, but right now I feel really comfortable with the state of our paper.

    Again, if anyone has any questions, send me a message, or ask them here.
