KTF Media Group turns a year old on February 5th, and it seems like a good time to sit down and recap on the events that brought this online publication into existence.
KTF began its life as something very different than what it would ultimately become. “We originally were planning to operate as an organization that would bring students from all over the world to the Vatican,” comments Joseph Fosco, publisher of KTF Media Group. “In fact, we wanted to transport people to the east coast last February for the papal visit. However, we were running into a great deal of red tape. Therefore, we decided to make use of our great website and talented volunteers by expressing our love for our Lord by reaching others through writing.”
Alex Sharp, who designs websites and custom content for Material Desires, is the current senior editor of KTF. “I’ve spent years working on websites and doing graphics work, but my real love is writing and editing. While I got to do a little of that putting together websites, now that I’m at KTF I’m up to my ears in pen and paper work. It is a refreshing change of pace. The job started out as a design gig and became something much bigger.”
Mr. Fosco, who is endlessly busy with the work surrounding KTF’s day to day operations, is also one of the more prolific writers. “I definitely find the writing fulfilling. I love receiving phone calls and emails from readers who enjoy the many great articles published by KTF. I have met a large number of people from all over the world.”
Some of the investigative pieces done at KTF have elicited serious attention, and not only from readers. Mr. Fosco was able to recall a few strange phone calls and visits concerning articles. “My articles on the disgraced Dr. Giacchino triggered a visit from the FBI and DEA, so there has been some interest outside of the traditional readership. I would suspect that my latest article on the Cerone’s and Rudy Fratto might ignite some fallout as well.
