The Good News and the People Making it Happen
Award season at MOR Media is a bit hectic. It’s similar to holiday season in retail: so much to do, so many people to work with, so very little time. It’s certainly our busiest time of year, but it might just be the most rewarding time of year, too.
We spend a lot, A LOT of time searching for stories, writing stories, taking photos, attending community events, selling ad space, working on content, building ads, etc. We are always on the move, striving to serve as many businesses as possible and get out as much good news as possible. We’re always working on a deadline, always looking for new content, always thinking of new ways to help our advertiser reach its ideal customer.
Because we’re small, we all do a variety of different jobs. For me, in award season, that means delivering some award certificates.
Let me tell you that it made my heart swell with emotion while delivering many of those certificates. We saw an uptick in voting this year (thank you readers!) and to see those votes translate into winners, and then to be able to confront those winners with a real life acknowledgement that their hard work has been noticed – well, I’m getting emotional again as I think on it.
This edition of Premiere honors the winners our community voted the Best in Jonesboro, and I am so happy for them. I hope you rejoice with your favorite local businesses that won, and perhaps know who to go to next time you are in need of the “best” service.
