Skiff editor-in-chief, advertising manager selected

The TCU student publications committee selected the spring 2010 Daily Skiff editor-in-chief and advertising manager Friday.

Senior news-editorial journalism major Julieta Chiquillo was selected as the new editor-in-chief for the Daily Skiff. Chiquillo is currently the managing editor for the Daily Skiff and has worked in the newsroom for two and a half years.

“It was always my goal to get to a point where I would be qualified to apply for this position,” Chiquillo said. “The challenge now is acclimating to the new newsroom and learning how to run smooth operations with TCU News Now and convergence.”

Chiquillo said she feels confident because she knows the process of publishing and the people with whom she works.

She said she hopes to coordinate with TCU News Now better to help reporters work across multiple media platforms.

Junior strategic communications major Courtney Kimbrough was selected as advertising manager. She has only worked with the advertising office since August, but said she was excited to be selected for the position.

Kimbrough hopes to continue the office’s advertising success without the hype of TCU football in the spring.

“Hopefully our baseball team will do as well as they did last year so we can use the momentum of our baseball team to help be a force behind our sales,” Kimbrough said.

Kimbrough said one of her goals is to continue to push the multiplatform selling, both in the newspaper and on the Skiff’s Web site, that the advertising department implemented this semester.
