Big News from Andrea

After two years, I am leaving Wichita Falls! I will be moving two hours east to work at KXAS in Dallas! I was just offered the job this afternoon, so the news is still sinking in! My new position will be morning reporter. I'll do live shots during the 5-7 morning show, and a live VOB or PKG for the 10-11 am show. Big surprise.. I'm incredibly excited! I'm also a little scared, but that's okay. I hope everyone is doing well!! Merry Christmas!!!

New Job Search Tool

Emily Galbreath (or as we all knew her Thatch) passed along this news from the Journalism Career Center.

The School's Career Center has started a new service for alumni. It now provides information about journalism jobs that require at least two years of experience. Jobs will be posted on the School's Web site and the list will be sent to subscribers through a biweekly e-mail. The new service will be for jobs that require 2-4, 3-5, 5-7 and 10 or more years of experience. Alumni who wish to find out about these positions and to be added to our listserv should e-mail with the subject line "Journalism Jobs." If a graduate was registered with the Journalism Career Center as a student, no additional fee is required. New registration is $40.

Also, Emily mentioned that she's been promoted to Assistant Director of Annual Giving at KU Endowment doing direct mail campaigns, so good work out of her!

A man stands in front of St. Peter at the gates of Heaven. St. Peter notices he made 160K/yr. and asked what the man did for a living. "I was a doctor, " he said. "Okay, " said St. Peter, inviting the man in. A second man approaches the gates. St. Peter notices he made 180K/yr. and asks what he did for a living. "I was a computer engineer, " the man replied. "Okay, " said St. Peter, inviting him in. A third man approaches. St. Peter notices the man only made 23K/a year. St. Peter looks and the man and asks, "What were your call letters?"
