I got a chance to sit down with Jim Knight (who you’ll see up first on the video below) and Casey Allen, who work in our Marketing Division and spend a large part of their summers promoting Fletcher’s N.C. Mountain State Fair, to talk about what they’re up to while getting ready for the mountain fun.
Jim and Casey work to coordinate advertisements and news releases to make sure Western North Carolinians know about all the fun scheduled for the fair, which kicks off Friday, Sept. 11, at the WNC Ag Center. I was actually able to go to last year’s Mountain State Fair with them, and these guys work hard. From taking photographs of kids and animals to setting up WLOS News 13 with a prime shot overlooking the fairgrounds for a news broadcast, they’re busy right alongside the rest of the Mountain Fair staff.
