Jen is the CA’s audience development specialist, which means she has my old job. She’s doing some amazing work connecting with the paper’s readership. When she’s not working, she’s probably watching Tiger basketball. You can find her on Twitter @memphisnews.

In other news:

– There was a small earthquake in Arkansas around 11 p.m. last night. It was only a 4.7 magnitude, but a lot of you said you could feel it here in Memphis. The good news is, damage is minimal and no injuries have been reported.

– Though the Elvis exhibit at the Newseum has closed, it’s going to be on display at Graceland. The exhibit features 150 items (many of which are never-before-seen pieces from the archives) about the media’s response to Elvis as the first real rock star. Admission to the exhibit is $10 if not included in your regular Graceland tour.

– The brand-new Urban Outfitters at the Corner of Cooper and Central in Midtown will open on March 24th.
