    I'm surprised they are hiring. Interesting place. Good luck.

    I don't know much about the job or newspaper, but my dealings with Sports Editor Burke Noel when he was in Spartanburg, S.C., were always good. He seemed like a good guy to work and deal with.
  4. My former place of employment....Love the people there....Ken Willis is one of the best columnists around

    I'll also vouch for the SID staff at Embry-Riddle. They do a great job, and ERAU is an NAIA powerhouse in just about every sport.

    What's their circulation? Any idea on what pay range should be for this outfit?

    Burke is without doubt a top notch guy. Gave me a chance to write for the Spartanburg Herald-Journal when I was in college and I really, really appreciated it.

    A friend of mine who used to work there said she got pressed into service on the sports desk for a while, and the staff were nothing but friendly and helpful, particularly given the fact that she knew next to nothing about sports.

    So that's the good news. The bad news is that they pressed someone who knew next to nothing about sports into service on the sports desk.

    A good guess on pay would be $30K-$40K.

    Last I heard they were down to their final three, at least according to a friend who interviewed.
