State of Knoxville Media
OK, I kinda feel compelled to blog about this because so many people are leaving the media world in Knoxville for a government position. First off the media is not dead. In fact in this past year my paper has grown in circulation and advertisement as everyone can see. But hey I can see why people want to work for government. What I do is not a job. It is a 24/7 365 lifestyle and to be honest I would not have it any other way. ... Yes I feel blessed to be working full time in a struggling industry. But to read reports that people don’t know if media will be around but government will. I disagree. ...
