New News Leadership

By Clever Jake, 5 years ago
Hi all,

It is with regret that I have to announce that is stepping down as News Manager. I want to personally thank zigs for his hard work during his time as manager, he's been a pleasure to work with and has done a fantastic job with the department.

It gives me great pleasure to appoint as the new news manager. I'm sure she'll do a fantastic job, but don't take my word for it, let's hear what she's got to say.

Hello everyone!

I’m Matrarch, and I’ll be stepping into the huge shoes zigs00 is leaving behind as he steps down as Manager of the Newshound team.

For the last seven months, I’ve been incredibly privileged to work alongside the members of the Newshound team as we’ve continued to expand our news coverage here at TA. We’ve posted somewhere over 1,000 articles since the new hounds came on board in November and I sincerely hope you feel that the quality, timeliness and accuracy of the news has only continued to improve during that time. It will definitely continue to do so in the months to come! We've also seen features such as the Community Interview return, as well as the introduction of the very well received Stats Wrap-up feature and certainly more such features will be coming in the future!

Of course, we’re not perfect and there are certainly things we can improve upon, so I just want to let you all know that you can feel free to PM me any comments, questions, complaints or suggestions you may have for the News team. I’m around the site very often, so I’ll always do my best to respond to you in a timely manner!

I’m really thrilled to be taking on the role of news Manager and seeing how the news will continue to grow from here on out!
But wait there's more, as the news team has grown, we believe that the addition of an assistant manager would reduce the workload and ensure greater long term stability at the top of the team. So let me also announce as our first Newshound Assistant Manager.

Congratulations to you both!
