The administrative assistant position was filled in January of 2021 and the news director position was filled in July 2021. The administrative assistant hired was Nancy King and the news director hired was Hayden Savage.   We reviewed applications we had on file, plus we conducted a search using our outreach efforts we promised with on-air, social media, hiring centers and web site. The administrative assistant was a distressed situation as the previous employee left with no notice leaving us very distressed in this department and no one on staff to fill this position. This applicant came by direct contact.  The news director position was publicized on-air, social media, web site as well as newspaper listings.  The person hired was a part-time employee with journalism experience.
