After 12 great years in Tennessee, Lara and I are packing up and leaving Knoxville to move to Las Vegas.
Mainly because I’ve landed a job with Greenspun Corp. that was too great an opportunity to pass up. I’ll be working as executive vice president of Greenspun Media Group, which includes their interactive division (the amazing Rob Curley and Co.) and their local media assets. I’ll be landing there in mid-July, but I’m already itching to start scheming.
What about Radiant Markets?
When Lara was laid off from her job at Scripps Networks Interactive, it became clear I couldn’t spend a year building a startup and not taking salary. So I started casting around for a “regular” job that could accommodate the entrepreneurial, startup spirit I’ve been enjoying since Wes Jackson and I launched Radiant last fall. Greenspun Media Group was the perfect opportunity. Wes will continue with Radiant Markets after I head to the desert. Perhaps the greatest thing I’ve gained since leaving my job with Scripps a year-and-half-ago has been the opportunity to work closely with Wes. He’s one of my best friends and his business acumen is second to none.
