Last week, we were scooped by Northfield.org here and by the Northfield News (print version only) on the announcement of Locally Grown co-host Ross Currier’s promotion from half-time to full-time Executive Director of the Northfield Downtown Development Corporation (NDDC).
How did this happen?
As I wrote in my podcast blog post last week, we got a phone call in the studio after the Feb. 26 recording session ended. Producer Mathias Bell took the call and said to Ross, “That was NDDC board chair Dan Bergeson. He says the job offer’s a done deal but that the exclusive rights to the story were sold to Northfield.org and the Northfield News for an undisclosed sum. You can’t even post to the NDDC blog about it.” He then snapped the photo.
Ross still hasn’t blogged about it. Go figure.
