Paul Redfern, executive director of Communications & Marketing at Gettysburg College, was quoted in a August 1 Associated Press story that ran in outlets nationwide, including The Washington Post, San Francisco Chronicle, Boston Herald, Huffington Post, ESPN, Sports Illustrated, Yahoo! News, NPR, Business Week, and more.
From the Associated Press:
While angry tweeters have taken to — yes, Twitter — to grouse about spoilers, Paul Redfern at Gettysburg College in Pennsylvania has entered what he calls "my Olympic dark period" on social media. That's not an easy thing when your job description includes overseeing social media engagement. He's also the dad of two young kids.
"Watching the prime-time broadcast is a family tradition," he said. "The Summer Olympics are almost always on for part of our vacation and we always gather as a family to watch each evening."
Redfern is leaving the tweeting on behalf of the college to another person in the office for the duration.
