We received tons of emails to sort through to find the best fits for the jobs we posted in a want ad awhile ago, and today we're announcing that we've found our people.
For the daily links post, we've actually hired two people in order to split the load, but also because we had so many good applications that we wanted to bring two people aboard.
On Mondays and Tuesdays, you'll be reading links compiled by Mark Millard, a field reporter for CBC news in Toronto who was born in Montreal. Mark has been a Habs fan his entire life, and is very excited to get back into writing with us.
On Wednesdays and Thursdays, you'll be reading links compiled by Aruny Siv, formerly known on EOTP as Hungry Hippos in the comments section. Aruny is a Toronto native who was wooed by the Canadiens, or more accurately, by Carey Price in the 2007 World Juniors, and has been a Habs fan ever since. She will be posting her first links post tomorrow!
Finally, we come to Stephen Demone, who will be taking on the big responsibility of writing game threads and period threads for us starting soon. Stephen is a novelist, and an experienced writer with a background in marketing and social media, but as he said in his email, a Habs fan first.
We are extremely excited to be adding these new voices to the site, so I hope you'll join me in giving them a warm welcome!
