Goldsby recently answered these questions about herself and her role with ICAN, the backbone of HSPA’s budget that also adds revenue to newspapers’ bottom lines:

Job title: Statewide classified and 2×2 ad coordinator

Years with HSPA: Six

My job in a nutshell: Placing the incoming ads in our three ICAN advertising program networks, plus administrative/clerical work including keeping HSPA databases updated, tearsheeting and sending out mailings.

Favorite part of the job: That it’s such a variety! I like all of it – well, not the tearsheeting.

Favorite sections of the newspaper: Of course the classifieds and then the front-page stories. I really like Carson Pirie Scott ads for the coupons and the occasional Dunkin’ Donuts coupons

What my grandkids call me: Mamaw

What makes me smile: Sunshine, my grandchildren and my husband – most of the time.

Favorite food group: Meat and ’taters – then junk food

Dream vacation: A long cruise someplace warm

How I take my coffee: Cream only and preferably with donuts
