I took over the Calendar in early 1996, when it was a quarter-page box on the back of each Friday's issue. It had no pictures, few events and a serious deficit of pizzazz.
I expanded it to half-page (more when the hole was bigger), aggressively collected events and created a visual style for the page that included photos. I also standardized the presentation of event details so that information was easy to find and understand.
But the biggest improvement I made was to give the Calendar a fresh, hip and often cynical voice that helped make it a favorite feature of the Daily, indispensable for anyone looking for weekend fun.
