BW's iPhone app that will provide users details about local happy hours should be available next week, according to KTRV-TV. The app will include need-to-know information on each happy hour, including travel directions and details on drink specials. "If there's something in particular you want to go and do you can really narrow it down and not play the guessing game," the Weekly's Shea Sutton says.
After a year leading the Boise Weekly's editorial team, Shea Andersen is headed out, "to work at a newspaper that does not feature a cartoon devoted to making fun of idle chatter overheard in the offices of Boise," according to a press release. He will be replaced by Rachael Daigle, who has been a staff writer and editor at the Weekly for five years. "Rachael knows what we are about and understands what needs to be done to move Boise Weekly forward," publisher Sally Freeman says in a statement. "I am very excited about our future with her leading our editorial team." The paper also took this opportunity to announce two new hires: Nathaniel Hoffman as news editor and Tara Morgan as staff writer.
