    Good gig. Anyone know who left?

    From jjobs.com.

    The right person to join our top-notch team will be also be someone who can tell stories in a variety of ways, including alternate story forms, video and audio and narrative style.

    Looks like a solid job. It's been a few years since I've followed this market, but even if they're looking for someone right out of school, I wouldn't be shocked at a pay scale starting at $25k or more.

    Anyone know what the beat would be here? I'm guessing a lot of preps?

    Cost of living what it is there, they'd better pay more than 25. They're a union paper, too. If you're straight out of college, my guess would be high 20s, maybe 30. More with a year or two in the biz.
  5. If it's a Guild paper, I can't find it listed here...

    25K? It's not a 25 circ. They better start much higher than that or they're going to get bumpkus

    This job is covering high schools and local sports.

    They're in a CWA local, not Guild. Just got a new contract earlier this year, so hopefully it'll hold through the impending sale.

    So, any rough idea where they fall on that Guild scale??

    From my experience, CWA locals are weak comparatively. Lack of Guild muscle = cheaper-than-toilet-paper-it's-written-on contract.

    Probably high $30s at a minimum. $40K should be more like it. (I worked there for what seemed like years -- really, just a matter of months.)

    So you feel pretty confident that it's somewhere in the 30's as opposed to the 20's??

    Anyone else have any info on the paper and the area?

    Thanks in advance.
