Cheers to Chad!

December 2, 2009

As I am sure most of you have heard, Arizona Republic reporter Chad Graham has been promoted to social media editor, which means he will be focusing on newsroom strategy rather than stories from here on out.

At HMA, we’ve had the pleasure to work with Chad several times since he moved to town, especially when he first joined the Arizona Republic and covered the dearly departed “Biz Buzz” features each day in the Business Section.

So, in honor of all the laughs we’ve had with him on location and all of the fun we had working on stories together, here is a quick roundup of some of our favorite Chad-flavored stories that featured our clients.

Feel free to post links to yours as well!

My personal favorite memory – working with Chad on a story about some of my clients’ New Year’s resolutions and, while interviewing a Subway franchisee about his resolution, learning that Chad was a huge Jared fan. So much so that the next time Jared came to Phoenix, Chad worked with us to get a full-page feature story on his visit.

    The first time I met Chad was when he first began covering economic development for the Arizona Republic. I was with the then-executive director of the Arizona Association for Economic Development and we met the “now-jobhawk” for coffee.
