Streetsblog Looking for Fresno Writer!

If you would have asked me previously which would most likely come to Fresno, Streetsblog or Jetblue, I would have guessed Jetblue (but not seriously).

Following the launch of Streetsblog in Texas, Ohio, Saint Louis, and
the Southeast, we have more good news to bring. Starting in early April,
Streetsblog will launch its newest news site, Streetsblog California.

As part of the grant from The California Endowment that will allow us
to launch the new Streetsblog, we’ll be hiring a writer in Fresno to
cover the Livable Streets beat in the Central and San Joaquin Valleys.
