Jim Grey's experience with radio station salaries reminds me of
the offer I got for an entry-level reporting position (my degree
is in journalism): $11,500. That would be low anywhere, but in
the Bay Area . . . that just confirmed my belief that technical
writing was probably the best way for me to write and make a living
at the same time. It also satisfies my desire to get into picky
details, which is probably difficult or impossible for reporters.
