    Experience covering criminal trials an asset.

    Declining population, allegedly racist police force, corrupt politics, dirty air, terrible economy, nationally notorious rape cover up.

    What's not to like?

    Speaking of criminal, I was covering a high school football game down in Steubenville a few years ago when I started talking to one of their reporters. He had a four-year degree and had been working there for over a year.

    He was making minimum wage.

    Do you get to cover football team parties?

    Apparently no one in that town believes in consent.

    I will say this when it comes to cover legal matters or off the field issues..... you should be able to do it. I realize some places like to hand that stuff off to cops and courts reporters and that's fine if management wants to go that route. But it bothers me when a sports reporter says "Oh, I just cover the games". No, silly, you cover the NEWS, regardless of where it takes place.

    If you need help, ask for it, just like I've offered news side colleagues help when it came to sports-related stories. But if you aspire to be a well-rounded reporter, it's important to be able to work outside of your comfort zone.
