Another Tattoo alum turns pro

Though Tattoo alum Joe (Wilbur) Killian has been a staff writer for The Bristol Press and a paid intern for The Cape Cod Times in summers past, today he’s joining the ranks of the pros a little more permanently.
Joe began working a 25-hour-a-week gig with the Greensboro News & Record in Greensboro, North Carolina where he can get cash to write while he finishes whatever the hell classes he still needs before UNC-Greensboro finally gives him his bachelor’s degree. You’d think that by now they’d have gladly handed him the sheepskin just to get him out of there, but apparently academic inertia afflicts the administration as well as certain students.
In any case, we’re proud of Joe.
Here’s Joe’s own account of nabbing the job: Game On.

  • Thanks for the congrats. I have a large list of stories I want to write for them and I’m going to try to spend the next few weeks kn knocking them all out.

    Now that I’m a professional reporter going to school on the side rather than a student writing on the side I don’t feel so bad about STILL finishing off the last bits of my double major.
