As you might have noticed, The Week in Review has been on hiatus this past fall and winter, as our writers and editors (working stiffs, all) struggle to balance Working For the Man and Living The Dream(TM). The juggling act has cost us one writer (Megan, we miss you!), but we’re fortunate enough to gain two new ones in the process.
Brennon Keys, a veteran sports reporter and collegiate journalist from Pine Bluff, Arkansas (by way of Missouri) has signed on to be one of our writers this year. To borrow a phrase from the sports world, Keys can play all positions–from straight-news, to op-ed, to humor. With a wry wit and an eye for the funny, he’ll be your guide to the bizarre and strange world of the Internet, replete with bird-women hybrids, plane crash fetishists, and other things people blog about at 9 AM in the morning.
Working alongside him will be Alex Harris. Harris, a news reporter for WSUM in Madison, Wisconsin been around the block more than a few times on the Internet–her thesis on Twitter and the Library of Congress got exactly…one hit, but that’s one hit more than us!
*cue forced laughter*
Seriously though, you all are in two of the most capable hands in the news business. So sit back, relax and enjoy the show–because it’s going to be one wild ride.
