    From jj.com - $25/30K year.

    The Katy Times, an award-winning daily newspaper in Katy, is looking for a sports editor with a passion for community journalism. Experience in InDesign, Photoshop and sports photography is required for this position. Benefit package includes health insurance, vacation and 401(k). Please send resume, along with samples of your writing and layout work, to Terry Schaub at tschaub@katytimes.com.
  2. Is this the place where the sports editor a year or so ago posed as some of the athletes he covered so he could get high school girls and their mothers to send him photos?
  3. Just read up on it....aaaand it is.

    Well, guess I'm not sending a resume THERE. Shame, because it's not a bad job - good area for sports, anyways.

    Not a bad paper, though, and good high school programs to cover. Far enough from downtown Houston that you've got your own niche, yet close enough for an occasional big city fix.

    Traffic to and fro will make it seem plenty far at times. Its local sports site is trying, but a link to a calendar shows no events in the area in January.

    I don't know much about this job, but I do know a lot about Houston. And $25-30K ain't a livable wage in Katy unless you've got at least one roommate.

    You'd never run out of anything to write about working in sports at that paper. Obviously the football is top notch, and the guys who have been there - during my time in Houston, I knew Georgandis and the late Scott Kaiser specifically - owned that town and were well-respected.
    I don't envy anyone who has to work with the Katy ISD athletic department, though. Athletic directors in the Houston area were getting a lot harder to work with as far as media access when I left there in November 2009, and I have to think it hasn't gotten any better. Katy's AD, who is retiring this year, was at the forefront of that movement. Anybody at the Times had better stay on his good side or they'll have some difficulties.
