Today’s news:

Yak attack! Will Yakowicz gets the job!

The Brooklyn Paper

We’ve replaced our beloved Senior Reporter Mike McLaughlin with (drumroll please) Will Yakowicz! Watch the new reporter get the news — live! — in this stunning piece of videotape. Who else but The Brooklyn Paper broadcasts a video of a guy getting a job? No one, that’s who!

This is the feel-good story of the week (for Will, at least).

"Will Yakowicz
fiction Will, a native of New Jersey, lives in Manhattan studying Journalism and English at New York University. He is a staff writer for the Washington Square News covering NYU’s wrestling team. He walks around the city with a steno note pad and tape recorder for creative inspiration. One of his goals is to never be a journalist. He likes to fish, camp and write. "

I guess you cant get all your goals...But welcome aboard Will.

I know this guy and all i have to say is he is so damn creative and will write stories that capture your mind and your perspective on reality, but he is a picky eater though.
