The Clarendon-Courthouse-Rosslyn Patch web site is looking for a new editor.

Former editor Christian Pilling left the site last month, about five months after it launched. He is now working for a media technology start-up in Brooklyn, N.Y.

A job listing for the site was posted on Monster.com 11 days ago.

    What does this sort of job pay, anyway?

    • It’s been reported that Patch editors make in the area of $40-45K on average.

    So I am assuming ARLNOW has some connection to Patch otherwise I doubt most people care.

    • Well, they’re our competitor — that’s the only connection.

      • I wouldn’t call them your competitor. ArlNow, you own the news around here.

        • Thes

          Ain’t it the truth!

  • You know I originally applied for that job, but now I think I wouldn’t want it. Plus I doubt I could add anything reporting-wise to the scene that you don’t already cover. A bit surprised Christian bugged out so early, but oh well, it was his first journalism job out of college.

    • I’m sure there are some interesting things happening along the R-B corridor that we’re not reporting on. Ideally, Patch would be would be filled with location-specific human interest stories and nitty-gritty, granular community news. But that doesn’t seem to be happening at this point.

      • Seriously, how much more grandular can the reporting on Clarendon-Courthouse-Rosslyn get?
