A move from news to sports
Bernstein surprised me when he indicated interest in the position, because he was doing a solid job on the city beat. But he was ready for a new challenge, and I'm glad to be able to offer it.
And believe me, it will be a challenge -- the sports editor is arguably the toughest job in the newsroom.
The focus of the sports section is local, and the demands are intense. Consider the dozens of local high school, youth, and adult athletics that deserve attention. And consider that we have a staff of five full-timers to write, edit and paginate the sports section of The Saratogian, not to mention the Community News, our weekly newspaper serving southern Saratoga County. And remember that we are also in a competitive media market, making it all the more critical that we serve local readers better than anyone else.
By the way, to the person trying to tell me about a Japanese porn site on the blog, I am trying to respond to you that I don't see what you are talking about. Of course I don't want a link to a porn site. Where should I be looking to eliminate it?
