And Shane is very special in that he really is the embodiment of that market. He knows exactly what we're looking for from our journalists and is definitely a thought leader for them. And he also knows what our customers need on the brand side because he's written those types of authentic pieces that are not just marketing or promotional pieces for those brands, because that is not good content marketing, but are high-quality relationship building pieces that actually bring lots of learning to those brands customers so that they can benefit in the end from the content.
