    The Dominion Post, the source of information for West Virginia University sports, is seeking a WVU Football beat reporter.

    A talented team player is needed to complement our small, yet extremely productive Sports Department.

    The Dominion Post is north central West Virginia’s largest daily newspaper with a circulation of 22,000-plus daily, and 25,000-plus on Sunday. Just an hour south of Pittsburgh, we are home to the state’s flagship university. The Dominion Post is an equal opportunity employer that offers competitive salaries and benefits. Send resumes and clips to Sports Editor Eric Herter, 1251 Earl Core Road, Morgantown WV 26505 or e-mail: eherter@dominionpost.com. No phone calls please.

    Damn. I know it's the town WVU is in, but a paper this small going on the road with the team is pretty interesting.

    Looks like they went to a paid website in '05.

    How much is the size of this paper going to affect the interest in the job?

    A new SID and a new beat writer will present some interesting challenges for everyone involved - from the newspaper, to the athletic department to the football program. At the same time, that could make it a fun opportunity for some eager young cub willing to listen, learn and adapt.

    Who cares about paper size? Unless they pay 22K or make you run the presses, I'd kill 10 random SJers for this job.

    Oh, I would too. I was just curious if there would be those who would look at the paper itself, and not the beat. That's all I was asking.

    A paper that small isn't likely to pay that much. On the other hand, that's got to be their top sports beat, so maybe they'll get up to 40K.

    A disclaimer: I know absolutely nothing about the paper, its management or its finances. I'm just spouting off the top of my head. So take the previous post for what it's worth. Zero.
  10. Kinda weird that the ad expires on Sept. 3, and West Virginia's first game is Sept. 1.

    Hope they find someone before then.

    What kind of experience are they looking for? Would an '06 grad with some internship experience have a shot?

    Just spent the weekend in Morgantown ... my third time there in the last year to visit a friend. It's a college town, that's for sure. No real fancy housing or expensive groceries, so you could probably get by alright on a smaller salary. The town never seems to awe me that much, mostly because I've been there during the summer when most of the population is gone. At least you're only a few miles away from the Pennsylvania border if you need to travel there.

    That being said, I can't imagine that this job wouldn't be fun, especially considering what the WVU could do this year.
