    So, if "no one cares" about NAU or the local schools, what the hell do they cover? I'd be shocked if they're staffing pros in Phoenix on a regular basis.

    Did that 20 years on a paper 2 hours from a metro, but that was 20 years ago when the mindset was a lot different than it is today. Back then, it wasn't uncommon to do a prep feature, hop in the car and drive two hours, cover an NBA or major college game and drive back home and be asleep by 2:30 am.

    They cover NAU and the local schools. I'm not saying NO ONE cares about those schools, but it's not a huge following by any means. When I was there, we did a lot more with the Phoenix pros than they do now. But that was because I (and others that were there) wanted the clips and experience more than anything. The ME didn't exactly encourage us to make the trip down the hill.

    Now, your pro fix will have be satisifed when the Cards come to town for training camp.

    As for the pay, closer to 22-23, not 25.

    Yeah, Cosmo, same with me. I never got overtime for it. It was more like "if you get your local stuff done first, you can go if you want to". Seems like more and more places won't let you do that anymore, even if you don't bill for it.

    And I wouldn't do it now, at this stage of my career. But as a 21, 22, 23 year old, heading to an NFL press box every other Sunday to cut my teeth was good experience.

    Who left?
    The ad states a two-person staff, but last I heard it was three and there are three listed on the paper's site. What gives?

    The sports editor left, and the ASE is likely to get the bump up. It was a three-person staff, unless the most recent hire got moved to news or something.

    Where did the SE end up? Still in the business?
