Gleefully, I might add.
After more than eight years at the Knoxville News Sentinel as a reporter, I'm going into public relations.
I've accepted a job at the University of Tennessee-Knoxville in the media relations department.
The offer came this morning, actually. I start the new gig in August.
Funny enough, today is my eight-and-a-half-year anniversary at the newspaper.
Journalists often refer to public relations as "the dark side." (I've done it, too. Many times.)
But hey, maybe I can shed some light over there :)
