    Anyone got any info on this paper and this area - circulation, staff, coverage load, the works? Would this be an entry-level hire?

    From what I know about that market size, it's definitely entry-level ... for a sports writer who doubles as a photographer.

    What was the name of that Slade hit?
  3. Let me see if I can help.
    I would estimate the circulation being around 5,000, if that much. The paper is published Monday through Friday afternoons and Sunday morning (although the paper is done on Saturday morning and used to be on the racks by Saturday afternoon).
    Basically, the coverage area is Phillips County, Arkansas, which has seen its share of decline for about 20 years now. In 1990, West Helena had about 11,000 people and Helena was teetering around 10,000, and the last numbers had West Helena around 8,000 and Helena around 5,600 and now combined as one city instead of two.
    As far as sports coverage, you have five football teams (three public, two private), with Elaine joining the fray in basketball. The public schools are Helena-West Helena Central, Barton and Marvell, while DeSoto Academy and Marvell Academy play in the Mississippi Private School Association.
    I can give you more information that you need if you just PM me.
