Khristopher Brooks has a new job, but he’s not putting out a press release this time

Khristopher Brooks

Remember Khristopher Brooks, the young reporter who was fired from the Wilmington News Journal before even starting the job because of an I’ve-been-acquired press release he posted?

Brooks says he was “bombarded with great job offers” after that brouhaha, and he’s accepted one of them.

In this post, however, I won’t be making another press release about my employment. I’m writing to simply say everything worked out fine. This new reporting position (for a daily newspaper) puts me in a beat that I love and in a state far away from Delaware.

I’m sure you would like to know where I’m employed now, but I’m sorry, you won’t be finding out from this post. I need to focus on my reporting and writing, not more infamy.

Your new employer is no mystery, Khris. I did a quick search and noticed that your LinkedIn page lists your occupation as K-12 Education Reporter for the Times Union in Jacksonville, Florida.
