  2. This is a CNHI paper.
    But it produces a good product and it a regular award winner.
    Fairmont is just outside Morgantown and the paper is squeezed between the Dominion Post (Mo'Town) and the Clarksburg paper (about 20 miles down I-79.
    Fairmont's coverage area is pretty much Fairmont.

    Not much to add, other than what was said the last time this gig was open. Morale seems a LOT better with the new publisher in place, though.

    This has been filled. Was filled back in mid-June actually. I'm the new sports editor and we've hired Joe Mitchin as sports reporter. He wrote for WVU's school newspaper.
