DL Newspapers hires marketing consultant

The Detroit Lakes Newspapers has a new multi-media marketing consultant in its advertising department.

Kristie Fritz is joining the sales team with a focus on special projects.

Fritz will be selling advertising for the Becker County Record, Detroit Lakes Tribune, Lake Area Press, dl-online and other Forum Communications publications.

She moved to Detroit Lakes six years ago to take a job as the director of operations at the Best Western Premier Lodge on Lake Detroit.

The International Falls native attended St. Cloud State for Mass Communications and has been in the hotel industry for the past 16 years.

She says she's looking forward to working within the advertising business because not only does she enjoy new challenges, but the job will also be a better fit for her family.

"I've managed hotels since 1995, and hospitality never closes, so I'm looking forward to a more normal schedule and spending time with my family," said Fritz, "and I'm also looking forward to getting out and meeting more people in the community."

Fritz lives in Detroit Lakes with her two children, 16-year-old Lexi and 14-year-old Austin.
