Personal v professional

This weekend sees a footy team from the air force base in Minot, ND travel east to play FC Fargo.

As the Communications Director of FCF, I am responsible for how the club communicates with the public. Normally this is social media and press releases but tomorrow I'll also be on the public address system.

The challenge? I'm a committed pacifist and have been for years.

Meanwhile, as an English immigrant to Minnesota who has barely been here, I am also responsible for the social media of KKWE.

Challenge #2: The station operates for the Ojibwe of Gaa-waabaabiganikaag and that is the voice that that social media must have.

I'm pretty sure I'll cope. Those challenges are why a degree in journalism is useful.
