    Sports Page Designer/Copy Editor

    The Quincy (Ill.) Herald-Whig, a 23,000-circulation paper, is seeking a sports page designer/copy editor. We are looking for someone who can edit and design our award-winning section. There is some news side work required in the summer, but this is primarily a sports position. QuarkXPress experience is required. Prior daily newspaper experience is preferred, but we will consider recent graduates.

    The Herald-Whig publishes in the afternoon Monday through Friday, and in the morning Saturday and Sunday. Quincy has a population of 40,000 and sits on the banks of the Mississippi River in West-Central Illinois, two hours north of St. Louis. We are heavy into local coverage. We cover more than 40 high schools and four colleges in Illinois and Missouri.

    To apply, send a resume and clips to Sports Editor Don O’Brien at dobrien@whig.com, or by mail at 130 S. Fifth St., Quincy, IL 62301. The Herald-Whig is an equal opportunity employer.

    If it's above 25k, I'm wrong about everything.

    You may not be wrong about everything, but I'm pretty certain you're wrong on this one. I'd be very surprised if it's below 25K.
  5. Quincy is my hometown and I worked for this paper during high school. O'Brien is a first-class SE and Matt Schuckman, one of the writers, is awesome. This is a fun department with great people. PM with any questions about the paper, the staff or the community.

    As far as the salary question, last person who had the job made just short of $30K. He was fresh out of college.

    Thanks for the interest.
