    I've worked with Brian Williams for about a year, he's a great editor with a background in sports. You'll never find a better editor that'll go to bat for you. This is a great position for somebody seeking a change of scenery or is looking for management experience. Last time I checked, this was a two-person show.

    Good luck to whomever applies, but to say this is not a garden spot of California would be an understatement.
