All news must go! Nothing held back!Don Day | December 9, 2009
I will no longer publish IdahoRadioNews.com after December 31st. I am moving into a new role at KTVB, and on January 1 will become Internet Sales & Product Manager. I’m very excited about the new challenge.
But it means that I will have to put aside this site. This will not be my last post here — in fact, I’m hoping to empty the notebook over the next few weeks. I’m out of town presently, but have a bunch of time off coming my way, and want to end things here right.
We’ll do our annual holiday goodwill post, we’ll look at our 2009 predictions polls, go through some fun history-type e-mails, etc.
Here’s where you come in: Got something you want to see here? An old photo, or juciy bit of news… or something your station is doing really well? I want to know. I will miss this endeavour – and hopefully you’ll find me on Twitter (@donlday) where I’ll probably still talk about radio news and notes from time to time.
Why now? This job is a change in focus, and because I’m not just a rabel-rousing newsie anymore – I need to align things like this to that new role. You might say: why not turn this site over to someone else? I wouldn’t say I’ve ruled that out, and if you or someone you know makes an extremely strong case for it – I’m all ears. However this is a brand pretty closely tied to me – and I will probably hold onto the domain name, archive and “assets” such as they are.
I’ve covered Idaho Radio for nearly seven years – and the connections and personal satisufcation I’ve derived from this hobby will be something I will miss. Thank you for reading and being part of the IRN community.
Now… about that notebook emptying (see above!)
