Time to meet the new boss, Addicts
Arrowhead Addict has been in my hands for almost two years. Now, it’s time to move over and let the next man have his say.
On April 6, 2015, I was officially hired by FanSided. I came to the company with a bevy of different editorial responsibilities, but none were more important than keeping the flame here at Arrowhead Addict.
Despite the continued growth of FanSided, this site will always have special meaning. It’s the first site, the place where Adam and Zach Best cut their teeth and ultimately, spawned a great success story. Over the last 22 months, it’s been my honor to run this show, with ample help from our incredible staffers.
Now it’s time for me to step away. My duties on FanSided’s flagship site are growing, leaving me with less time to focus on our beloved Kansas City Chiefs. I’ll still stop by and write the occasional column, just to appease or annoy you, depending upon your view. Either way, you aren’t getting rid of me completely.
I can’t express how much this opportunity meant, and means to me. It will always be part of my personal journey that continues into a national forum.
With all that said, I’m beyond thrilled to announce that our new editor, Matt Conner, is coming on board. Conner has worked for years on Arrowhead Pride, the SB Nation blog covering the Kansas City Chiefs. He’s a talented writer and editor, someone who will dedicate 100 percent of his workday to maintaining and elevating the spot Arrowhead Addict holds in the Chiefs blog hierarchy.
With free agency and the draft looming, you will have a bevy of content covering all angles. You get a new voice, and an insightful one. After months of hearing me complain about Alex Smith, now you get a fresh opinion. I’m confident it is one that suits you well.
Lastly, thanks for allowing me into your lives. It goes without saying that it’s always humbling to have an article or column read by anybody, let alone millions over the course of a year. I appreciate your warmth throughout my tenure. Please, extend the same courtesy to Matt as his begins his odyssey with you.
