    We've got another opening at the Tulsa World on our universal desk. Night Editor Bill Harper is retiring after a long career, and we promoted one of our own to fill his role.

    That leaves us with an opening for a copy editor/paginator, and I'm hoping we find someone with a strong knowledge of sports for this position. I'm not in charge of the hiring on this one, but if you have any questions about the World or Tulsa in general, let me know.

    Here's the posting at journalismjobs.com

    Congrats to Harper. He has been there a long, long time. Who was promoted off the sports desk?

    There's no sports night desk anymore. All universal. John Walblay was promoted to Bill's spot. We've just lost so much of the old sports desk in the last couple of years to earlier promotions and the newsroom realignment last year that I'd like to see us beef up our depth.

    I'll say JR is terrible at fantasy baseball but he's great on the desk so I will vouch for the World as well, even though it didn't need my two cents.

    In my defense, I have won one fantasy baseball title.
