Happy 125th birthday, News Sentinel!
Dearest Knoxville News Sentinel,
Happy 125th birthday! I'm so glad to have been a part of you.
It thrills me that you still survive despite setbacks and uncertainties in the newspaper industry.
I have you to thank for my love of East Tennessee, you know. After all, you gave a New York City girl reason to come South.
I wasn't planning to stay in East Tennessee any longer than three years but somehow, you sucked me in with decent pay, wonderful friends and a fantastic newspaper career. Nine years later, I'm still here and it's looking like I'll be sticking around these parts for a while longer.
I pray that you would thrive and continue to be a blessing to others as you have been to me.
Sincerely and with gratitude,
(News Sentinel employee from January 2003-July 2011.)
