Lake Worth welcomes Kevin D. Thompson as the Post's new beat reporter: but a word of warning. . .

Mr. Thompson, note that during breaks at city commission meetings the video continues to roll; the sound is turned off but NOT THE VIDEO! Former Post reporter Chris Persaud learned this too late and Commissioner McVoy also knows about this (we'll save that one for later). Here is Chris Persaud to Andrea Celeste's The Masquerade:

Anyhow, Mr. Thompson has been at The Palm Beach Post for quite a while, this is from his bio:
He has 30 years of newspaper and magazine experience as a writer, editor, reporter and blogger. Kevin joined the Post in January 1996 as an entertainment writer. He was the paper's television critic for 12 years (1996-2008) and theater critic for one (2008-2009). In his career, Kevin has held various positions – researcher, business reporter, small business editor, senior editor, entertainment correspondent, television columnist, education writer. He was an associate editor and small business editor at Black Enterprise magazine for six years in New York City and worked as a reporter and entertainment correspondent for People magazine for two years in New York City and Los Angeles. Kevin has also covered entertainment extensively and written celebrity profiles for such newspapers and magazines as the New York Daily News, the New York Post and Essence while working as freelance writer and before joining The Palm Beach Post.
