It has been quite a while since I worked at the LNJ, but when I was there it was owned by Cox Communications and it was a great place to work.
Pros: great office setting and good management.
Cons: just like most newspapers, the pay was just so-so.
Longview News-Journal was a great place to work in East Texas. When I was there, I covered education and health care. This newspaper was where I began my career in journalism, and I learned about writing and reporting there.
