  2. If you're the sports editor, why are you being told which sports to cover?

    Good question, since you'd be in charge of the section, you should be able to choose the coverage. I'm assuming what they're saying is what has been covered in the past to give applicants an idea of what they have in the area?

    I worked the next paper over from here. Seemed like good people at that paper.
    And yes, the Hot Dogs are in the same conference as the Mounties (Southmont).
    Great place to watch a HS basketball game...tons of mini-arenas in the area. Lots to cover, and I mean lots in the terms they are mentioning...boring-ass local crap that only grandparents and parents care about. But it's a job, a good starter for someone just out of school with some experience.
