    Anyone have any info on this gig?

    Sounds like a dream job, but I'm always cautious about these...They sound like they'll make you a columnist, but you end up inputting Marvin Harrison's stats into agate...Is this legit?

    I thought this was going to be a thread about "citizen journalism."

    If they let me be a columnist, host a radio show and web chats, I would offer to put in the agate too just to show my appreciation.
  8. I know a thing or two about this. Anyone interested, feel free to PM me.

    Bumping this back to the top, if only because Career Builder and Gannett both re-posted this for some reason. Better get my resume there pronto.

    On a side note: 2,000 posts! (Bells, whistles, rotten vegetables)

    You would think Gannett could find someone qualified enough from the pool of 3,000 people they plan to lay off.
