Joe Territo, director of content development for Advance Publications’ Internet division, is looking for experienced Web producers to help out with NOLA.com, the Web site of the New Orleans Times-Picayune.
The Web site has become the main outlet for the paper as the flooding from Hurricane Katrina has devastated its print operation. The Times-Picayune has relocated its newsroom to Baton Rouge, and on Friday distributed its first print issue since the storm hit Monday.
The following message from Territo is currently circulating on various Internet forums: “We need to find skilled producers who want to work for us on a temporary basis, at first from home, and eventually down in Baton Rogue (as soon as we stabilize an office location for them), as a part of the NOLA.com team. I don’t have details on what we can offer them in terms of pay as of yet. We don’t have an idea of how long this assignment will be for, but, depending upon the person, it could be a number of weeks, or even a number of months.”
