NEW! @U2 Tours

"[M]usic has lost the personality of human beings and musicians. It's got so shiny that it's as if there's a surface of Formica over it. And it's something that doesn't let you in."

Welcome Our New Staff Writer: Fernanda Bottini (and Two New Forum Mods)

@U2, January 20, 2014
By: Matt McGee

 

It's usually a pretty big production around here when we bring on new staff members: We advertise open positions, review candidates, announce the names of our new staffers, etc.

But that wasn't the case with our latest staff addition. Fernanda Bottini has been someone we've known online for at least a couple years now. She's a music journalist in Brazil that's written for U2 sites there in the past, and has shared news tips, tweets, etc., with us -- usually before we heard the news from any other source. So when she became available recently, it was a no-brainer to invite her to join our news team.

You can learn more about Fernanda on her staff bio page and follow her on Twitter, too.

We also added two new forum moderators a few months ago. That was announced in our forum, but I think we failed to share the news here on the main site. Their names are Beth Austin and Drew Rogers.

Please join me in welcoming Fernanda, Beth and Drew to the @U2 crew!
