    Did Kelly Fenton leave or perhaps did he move up to editor-in-chief? I know they had an opening for that.

    One-man show, six days a week for $25K max...really?
     
  5. I'm not sure Kelly is with the paper anymore, but then again, rumor has it there's been a lot of turnover lately.
    The good news: if you get to cover Harding University, you get the best basketball atmosphere in NCAA Division II basketball.
    The bad news: you're part of Paxton Media Group.

    I worked for the newspaper in Jonesboro for a short time. It also apart of Paxton. I never met Kelly in person, but talked to him several times on the phone. Always seemed like a good guy. I was just curious.
    And yes, Paxton is....well I'll just keep my opinions to myself.

    I heard Kelly turned down the sports reporter position in Texarkana. I'm not sure why he left the Searcy paper.

    There are so many red flags with this job it's like a Communist Party rally.

    Kelly had been at Jacksonville, Ark and last summer he moved to NJ to be with his girlfriend, who had been flying back and forth for work but was forced to relocate. Quinton Bagley was the SE at Searcy. Anyone know what happened to him.
     
  10. According the Daily Citizen's Web site, Bagley is still there as sports editor. The news editor's slot is vacant, so I don't know if he's moving to that role or what.

    Kelly has been gone awhile and Quinton was running the show last I heard. We just hired one of their people (Gabe Calzada). I think they have had quite a bit of turnover lately. The ME also left not long ago.
     
  12. Word is out that the powers that be have elected to hire a graduate out of Harding to fill this one.
