For the Record

Meet Matt McFetridge, special events reporter for the Marina Times

Tell us about your dream assignment.

 

There’s a warlord in the Congo I want to do a documentary on. He’s a genocidal thug who drinks pink champagne and dresses in the latest Parisian fashions.

 

Describe the wackiest story you’ve written.

 

I love the Stanford band. They’re fun and when I filed on them they were drunk, profane and attempting to be clothing optional.

 

What is your PR pet peeve?

 

No means no, move on, ain’t gonna happen, deal with it. When a PR pro has an intern or underling call me and the intern or underling is clueless….doesn’t make the PR pro look too good.

 

Top trend in the industry you’re currently covering or are interested in.

 

The economy slowly coming back…we should all be concerned about that.

 

Tell us a little about yourself.

 

When I’m not writing or shooting TV stories or filing radio, I’m either on my bicycle or drinking and always enjoying our lovely city.

 

Be sure to check back in October for the inside scoop on Peter Spiller, editor of OutsideSanDiego.com.

    Hi Matt,

    As Landis Communication’s newest intern, I promise that if you ever do receive a call from me, I will be on top of my game!
