Gannett Wisconsin Media seeks a copy editor/page designer for its Regional Copy Desk center in Oshkosh. The Regional Copy Desk is responsible for designing and editing pages for three Gannett Wisconsin newspapers.


Just curious: Does anyone have an idea of how large these "regional copy desks" are?
