I Re-Join "MSM"

Jerry Seinfeld once said that the best feeling in the world is "after you get a job, and before you have to do it." So I've been trying to enjoy the last week as much as possible.

Last Friday I accepted a position as a reporter/editor with The Trend Leader, a newspaper based in King of Prussia, PA, part of Broad Street Community Newspapers. It's owned by Knight Ridder (not to be confused with "Knight Rider"), and is part of the consortium known as Philadelphia Newspapers, Inc., which also owns the Philadelphia Inquirer and Daily News. Yes, that's right- Stephen A. Smith is now my co-worker.

I'll be covering local news and sports in a suburb-to-be-named, and writing 5-10 stories per week. I'm quite excited, as this is my first full-time job on a newspaper, and something I probably couldn't have done had I stayed in New York. This blog will continue, though expect fewer posts during daytime hours.

I'm looking forward to seeing your regular byline. Link some of your better articles to website.

Congratulations Steve-o.

Congrats, Steve!

Apparently, 'tis the season for new jobs...I find that highly encouraging.

Congrats Steve, I look forward to reading your blatantly biased coverage in favor of X High, while barely covering the good news from Y High.

Pshaw, Bill. Deep down, we all know Y High sucks, even if we're unwilling to publically admit it. Go X High! :-p

"Now tell me how I can comment on it...letters to the editor perhaps???"

Good times. Are we allowed to curse in our letters to your editor? Do we have to include a 6 digit number with each letter too?

P.S. What is a "newspaper"?
