    I was going to bump up the old thread last night, but since this is on here... Courtney Linehan was named Managing Editor of RedEye, the Trib's tabloid.

    I think the caps lock LOCAL says it all. I have heard there is more emphasis on preps than at most papers this close to a major metro area, even with Chicago and Notre Dame within spitting distance. Obviously you need to have a balance if you cover the pros in a suburban market, but they like the teeter-totter with one end down.

    The Lee jobs page says this job is no longer available, for what it's worth.

    Did anyone apply for this the first time or might the paper have the bar set a little too high? Or are they looking for someone to work for peanuts?

    Seems like this positions turns over a lot, doesn't it?

    The same job was posted two weeks ago so I don't think anyone had time to get hired and then leave.

    I'm told someone from the West Coast has been hired to fill this position. That's all I know.

    David Keck, Editor at Victorville Daily Press, is the guy, I'm told.
