McDonald's opened up a second lane in the Boro and he couldn't pass up the opportunity. Good luck. I'll the beat writer for free. I just want a press pass so I can go in there and ask some real questions during the press conferences. I'll be kicked out by week 2 guaranteed.
I'm not convinced there is demand to justify having one tbh, and I'm a digital subscriber. I believe having local media is vital. But, how many people in Rutherford Co are willing to pay to read feature stories on a 5 win basketball team that hasn't approached .500 in almost 3 years? Let's face it, we don't move the needle as far as dollars go, at least not anymore. There was a time the DNJ had 3 writers covering home football games. and at least 1 dedicated beat writer for road games. But the landscape has changed, and we have largely failed to capitalize on those changes when presented the opportunity.Is this position still open or did the DNJ find somebody yet? Do they even want somebody?
