The Knoxville News-Sentinel is looking for people in the Knoxville, TN area who have lost their jobs and are willing to talk about it. This is something that would be good for every newspaper in the country to do. If you have lost your job or know someone who has and are in the Knoxville area please consider participating. You'll be doing yourself and a lot of others a big favor. You can also post your story on the Job Loss Guide Network, regardless of where you live.
Below, I have included a copy of the News-Sentinel email:
