    This is sports editor money for a paper that covers a Division I program?

    "Salary $25,000 to $30,000"

    I'm thinking they don't send someone on the road with the Falcons.

    Very flexible hours: You get the hours of 2-5 am available all to yourself for that generous $30k salary!

    Not all Division I schools are in large cities. I could easily see getting about the same amount to cover Kansas State for the Manhattan Mercury.

    Probably tough to attract quality candidates since the massacre. Or was that Kentucky?

    Seriously, though, they list $25-30k ...
    Why not just print: Competent folks need not apply!
    This is beyond sad. It's putrid.

    I made more than that at a Gannett daily in central Ohio ... 12 years ago. That's awful. Can't see them landing a real good candidate, but I bet they're thrilled not to be paying what Jack Carle must have been earning after so many years there (not that it was a bundle, I'm guessing, but certainly more than 30K).

    Hell, I made $30K at (redacted), which is down to two days a week with a circulation of around 2,000.

    I make more than $30K at my hourly, non-union factory job. The part-time job at the daily paper gives me a little extra cash.

    The true Bowling Green Massacre was Rand Paul getting his ass kicked.

    For someone recently laid off, unemployment benefits are probably more than what this pays.

    For the preps job there? Maybe.

    To cover K-State? No. (I know this because I know the folks who work there.)
