    The Daily Pilot in Costa Mesa, Calif. is seeking a sports reporter to work full time as part of a four-person staff.
    Seeking a writer with hustle and eager to improve. The Daily Pilot is going through several changes, with a redesign expected next month. The circulation is 25,000 to 30,000, Monday through Sunday. The newspaper is an insert in the Los Angeles Times, Orange County edition. We're owned by Tribune.
    We have a high readership on our preps coverage. The opening has the reporter covering high schools, in addition to youth sports and other sports including, swimming, crew and volleyball.
    We're hoping to fill the position by the end of the month. Please send clips of 8-10 stories.

    This gets the coveted boots seal of approval. Good training ground.

    Naaa, more likely it's a town that will be hit by an 8.0 within the next few years. If you can survive that, you can survive anywhere. :)

    It hasn't reached that level yet. However if you feel it does, by all means go to our valued thread of towns where you can get a good old fashioned ass whipping for free. We feel that Amerikkka needs to know where these places are. LET'S BE CAREFUL OUT THERE!!!

    Costa Mesa's a nice enough place. Crime rates are fine, it's close to the beach, there's plenty of fun things to do in nearby cities, some good schools in the area, etc. It's also not as pricy as some OC cities.

    Of course, I can't imagine you're going to pad your bank account taking a gig like this but for a younger person or someone trying to get into a major market, it could be a nice entry point.

    Is this the same opening which was discussed in the last Costa Mesa thread?

    And doesn't the "We're owned by Tribune" statement count as a major red flag these days?

    If this is anything like the job I applied for last year, it doesn't pay anything...unless about $12 an hour in Orange County is your thing.

    Monday through Sunday, does that mean a daily?

    Plus, you've got South Coast Plaza, a shopper's paradise. Can't tell you how many thousands of dollars I wasted wisely spent there.
