You need a Cougar sports reporter
Question: When do you think you will have a replacement for Carter Strickland? His Cougar reports were terrific! You need a guy in Pullman. -- Mike Houck, Tualatin, Ore.
Answer: We will fill the Pullman sports position as soon as possible...but it still may be a few months. We agree that reports of WSU sports activities are vitally important to a good many readers. And the only way to properly cover WSU is from Pullman. But we're going to take our time in filling the position, in part to meet internal budget needs and, in part, to ensure a good hire. My goal is to have someone in place by mid-summer, well before football season. -- Steve Smith, editor
