Flood Communications of Western Nebraska, parent company of 104.3 KIMB, announced Monday that Kimball’s Kristi Shields has joined the team as KIMB’s Digital Content Editor. 

As the Digital Content Editor, Shields will help keep western Nebraska and eastern Wyoming up to date on news, weather and community events primarily utilizing the KIMB social channels and 1043kimb.com. 

“There are so many interesting stories to be told in Kimball, and a lot of people that deserve to have the spotlight shined in their direction. Those people are my neighbors, and I can’t wait to highlight them on-air, online and @1043kimb on social media,” Shields said of her new position. 

“Kristi has an impressive resume, but we chose her because of how personable she is, and her dedication to keeping the public informed. She is going to be meeting a lot of people around town and I know they will all want to share their stories with Kristi,” KIMB Operations Manager Jay Allen said. 

Shields will spend time learning before taking the reins of KIMB’s social media. Residents of Kimball, Dix, Harrisburg and Pine Bluffs should be expecting to see her in their communities sometime later this month.
