Have you ever wanted my job?

Well, now’s your chance! 

I’ve been offered a full-time position with the company, SimpleTiger. They are an SEO & Content Marketing Agency. I’m excited for the new opportunity and of course, sad to be leaving you all. The job as news director for KLZR couldn’t have come at a more perfect time for me last year. I’ve learned so much through providing pertinent information for our readers, and will take all the lessons with me into this next chapter. If you’re interested in carrying out my duties, I strongly encourage you to apply. 

Of course, if you have any questions, feel free to reach out. I look forward to reading all of the applications and helping out with the process of hiring the next KLZR News Director!
