    Wonder how much you're being paid to relocate to Las Vegas.

    New sports editor named this week: Bill Bradley, formerly with the Sacramento Bee, starts Sept. 23.

    Relocation expenses determined by playing the quarter slot machines. (Oh... you're supplying the quarters.)

    Actually, this is a decent paper and its sports section isn't too bad. Time will tell how GateHouse ownership treats it.

    Buddy of mine got a job at the R-J in 2007 and they paid him like $3,800 to move from Alabama. But that was almost a decade (and 3-4 rounds of layoffs) ago.

    I can confirm what MileHigh said: I am returning to sports department management in three weeks. It's been fun working for the NFL for the past three years, but now I'm looking forward to working with a very solid staff and recruiting what I believe will be an important new hire. As the ad says, please apply to Allen Leiker for now, but I will be seeing candidates' materials before I start. I don't have many details beyond that, but I do promise to email back every one who applies. (Lack of common courtesy is one of my pet peeves in this business).

    Good for you man and good luck with the new gig. I was a Gatehouse casualty in Daytona but loved every minute of my time there. Have nothing but good things to say about DBNJ. And I'm glad to see someone hates not getting a response back. Hope for your sake Gatehouse doesn't gut you guys.

    The thing that's good about a job like this is even if you don't make a ton of money, you can get rich by gambling in Vegas. Not like the city was built on losing money or anything like that

    If you're a smart gambler, you can at least score some free eats and the occasional free hotel night. Not bad if the money is low and/or your apartment isn't the greatest.

    I'm glad to hear that! I'm a Las Vegas local now and I appreciated that I received a response from the paper when I was living in Illinois, so now I'm trying it again. I look forward to hearing from you.

    Hi all,
    I start tomorrow, but I am spending today going through the resumes. Everyone will get a reply as I tried to get down to finalists very soon. This hire will be a higher priority.
    And thanks to all for applying.
