Other than my own, of course.

I just happened to be cruising around on this site – Andrew Hudson’s Job List, which lists all sorts of jobs in the Denver area – and I came upon this:

Anchor/Reporter – they actually need two of these, by the way

Attn:  VP/News Director
500 Speer Blvd.
Denver, CO  80203

We recognize and appreciate the benefits of diversity in the workplace.  People who share this belief or reflect a diverse background are encouraged to apply.

Here’s why this is a great job: You would get to live in Colorado’s front range – and I’m definitely biased about this – but it’s the BEST PLACE TO LIVE EVER. And you would get to work for KUSA, which in my opinion is the station’s strongest market. It is owned by Gannett, which has been forcing employees to take furloughs lately, but the economy has to improve some time, right? And Denver hasn’t been as hard hit by the economy as many places, so while the housing market is down a bit, it’s not a mess.

If you apply for this job and you get it, you have to call me so that we can have lunch and celebrate. And so that I can pick your brain about what’s going on in the Denver news market. Good luck!
