    They wanted to fill this in-house, but I guess the person they wanted didn't want to make the move.

    I thought it was a little late to be looking for someone with the season already kicking off?

    If true, would be a tremendous move up from being a freelancer for Fox Sports Florida.

    Veering way off topic: Could you freelance for one of the Fox Sports sites and survive? I've heard the pay for full-time writers isn't great, but FSF relies quite a bit on freelancers.

    Perkins was the Heat writer for the Palm Beach Post for many years before he got laid off when the team got rid of the beat a year or two before LeBron came. Then they added it again when LeBron signed. Perkins has also worked at the Sun-Sentinel before.
    Good guy, glad to see he has a fulltime job again.
  10. Chris is a great guy.....very happy for him

    It is great to see that happen, because lord knows it doesn't happen enough... The last two hires by Orlando and South Florida are both great writers who, through no fault of their own, had been let go by Palm Beach.

    It's great to see them land on their feet.
