And I mean that, almost literally. Most of you know that I recently retired from the Air Force as a healthcare administrator, and then was working as a civilian employee in much the same capacity. But after 21 years of military healthcare, I was ready for a change – something more enjoyable and in tune with my true passions.
And you all know what really excites me: Great Falls (and Montana), blogging & other web stuff, and news & current events. So I am very excited to announce that I have been hired as the Web Producer at KRTV! This just might be my dream job: it integrates so much of what I love to do.
If you’re not sure what a “web producer” does, here’s a snippet of similar job descriptions: promotes interactivity and engages a web audience; enhance online news experiences through video, photo galleries, headlines, captions, stories, sports scores and much more; strong attention to detail, style, spelling and grammar. A friend of mine said that the only way they could have tailored this position more directly to me would be including the phrase “Must love beef” in the description – heh. So on August 25, I will begin my new role as a member of the “mainstream media!”
And I’d like to thank you guys – everyone who visits the site and comments and links to me and otherwise makes this so much fun. Seriously. Visiting GreaterFalls.com surely helped the KRTV crew understand my abilities and interests, and seeing how this whole “blogging” intarwebs thingy works helped to convince them that I was the right guy for the job.
And don’t worry: GreaterFalls.com isn’t going to disappear – I’ll still be posting way too many pictures of geese, proclaiming my love of snow at every chance, and promoting the community that I love!
