JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - A Fayetteville man is going to be the new director of communications for the City of Jonesboro.
Mayor Harold Perrin announced on Thursday Fritz Gisler will join the staff on March 2.
In his new position, Gisler will be responsible for all aspects of external and internal communications for the city.
Gisler is familiar with the job because he used to be the director of media services in Fayetteville. During his time, he and his team won several awards including an Emmy in 2014.
Mayor Perrin said Gisler has 30 years of experience in communications.
