New Convention and Visitors Bureau Director Lacey Ekberg met with members of the community Wednesday during a meet and greet at South Padre Island Municipal Building.
May 14 was the CVB director’s first day on the job. Ekberg said she is enjoying the new environment.
“It is gorgeous. The people are fun and friendly. I am getting paid to be the fun director. How much better could it be?” Ekberg said.
After retiring from Fox Sports in 1999, Ekberg said, she has worked tourism boards in Yellowstone Park, Hells Canyon, Alaska and Atlanta.
