    I've known Rusty for years, you won't find a better journalist/mentor. Good place to learn and grow and you may decide this is a perfect niche for you.

    They're owned by Tribune, which owns the Daily Press. The DP is the daily of record for the Gazette's coverage area, but they do a good job supplimenting their stuff. Definitely worse places to work in Virginia.

    That's a pretty cool location to work since you could live in a city environment or in the country with a very short drive.

    For those not familiar with our little corner of the world, Williamsburg is a great town.
