This might be the most unusual help-wanted ad you've ever read, but I hope it attracts the right people.
The Metro Sports Report is looking for a General Manager to play a major role in the business part of our operation, especially in terms of advertising and generating new revenues.
This will be a new position in our company. Nobody has been fired. Nobody has been laid off. Rather, the time has come to hire someone to help manage our company as it continues to grow.
Many of you know that we launched the Metro Sports Report in January of 2011. We initially covered the seven major high schools in Cedar Rapids and Marion, but since then we've added Cedar Valley Christian, Kirkwood, the Kernels, the RoughRiders, Coe and Mount Mercy.
We'll reach 4 million pageviews next month in less than four years of operation, which I think is astounding. We have been well-received in the community as an outlet for local news and are continuing to grow. That's why we need help.
