    This one will be posted at jjobs shortly, but wanted to get it out there quickly. Northwest Arkansas Newspapers in Springdale has an opening for a lead sports designer/coordinator. This person is basically the ASE for design and oversees the night sports desk. We produce 4 hyper-local dailies. This person would also have a big hand in designing the fan magazine Hawgs Illustrated, which produces about 20 issues a year. Looking for someone with sports background. Shoot me a PM or email (csouza@nwaonline.com) if you have any questions and I will do what I can to answer them. I know they are looking to move as quickly as possible. You can also send resumes with design clips my way and I will move them along.

    Unless Chip has changed radically as he gets older, I can say from experience that whoever gets this gig will have lots of freedom to do their thing.

    Buyer beware: You get to work with Chip, which is a plus, but unfortunately deal with me, as well.

    In all seriousness, though, any questions about the job itself should obviously be directed toward Chip, but if you're wondering anything about the area or the sports culture here, I'd be happy to lend my two cents.

    I could lend my $17, but I don't want a bunch of people contacting me.
