Aaron Cedeño Joins Phog.net Staff

Phog.net is pleased to announce that Aaron Cedeño has joined the staff as the site's first full-time recruiting and beat writer.

Aaron is a 2005 graduate of the University of Kansas and a 2007 graduate of the University of Arkansas. A journalist by trade, he comes to the site from the Louisburg Herald, where for the past six months he has served as the weekly publication's managing editor.  

Prior to his time with the Herald, Aaron worked for two years as a staff writer with the Olathe News and the Lenexa Centennial – two suburban subsidiaries of the Kansas City Star – where his responsibilities included covering everything from community news to sports. 

"I'm incredibly excited about this opportunity," Cedeño said. "I've been a part of the Phog.net community for a long time, and it's always been one of my goals to help contribute on a professional level to a Web site and a community that has brought me such enjoyment. I can't wait to get started."

Now with Phog.net, Aaron's primary responsibilities will be covering recruiting for football and men's basketball, highlighting not only the Kansas City area, but the State of Kansas as well as providing regional coverage. In addition, he'll be a constant presence at press conferences, practices and games for the current Jayhawk teams.

"This is a long overdue step for Phog.net," said Publisher, Tom Light. "We've built one of the largest fan communities in college sports, and yet we've never had a full-time writer. We felt the time was right to make this investment, and I think our subscribers will truly benefit from having someone on staff who will be putting in full-time hours. We were extremely fortunate to be able to convince Aaron to come aboard, and we look forward to giving him the forum and opportunity to display his very capable skills."

Cedeño will begin providing content immediately, and will be full-time within a few weeks.
