Spotlight Media is constantly growing and changing. As we’re sad to see team members leave, we’re always excited to announce our newest hires. Since all our employees come from a wide range of backgrounds, each member offers unique skills that help the Spotlight Media team become even stronger and more well-rounded.

Meet our three new team members and learn what makes them a perfect fit for our company.

Scott Rorvig | Sales Representative

“I grew up in on a cattle ranch outside of McVille, North Dakota (population of 500), and attended Dakota Prairie High School playing all sports possible. Then graduated from NDSU with a degree in sports management with a minor in business management during which I worked for the F-M RedHawks and NDSU Athletics. Post graduation, I have worked with Red River Financial and Eldermark Software.”

What kinds of hobbies and interests do you have outside of work?
“I am a huge basketball guy, it has kind of dominated my life up to this point. I’m slowly opening up to new activities, such as snowboarding, running, biking. Anything to keep active/busy. Also big music guy, I have it playing about 90% of the day. If I could trade in all the lyrics in my head for useful knowledge, I may be a doctor.”

What’s your favorite book and/or movie?
Favorite book: “Blind Your Ponies” and “Shoe Dog”
Movie: “Dazed and Confused” and “Wolf of Wall Street”

Share something about yourself that would surprise us?
“Graduated top four in my high school class … with a class size was 16. 🙂  I’m the only rancher to memorize all of Kanye’s songs—self-proclaimed.”

What drew you to Spotlight Media originally?
“I love what it does for Fargo, showcases all the good that’s going on in our community. Also, I believe it is a company that will only constituent to grow and makes a good impact overall.”

What are you looking forward to the most with your new position?
“I love getting out in the community and meeting the people that make the F-M area go and hopefully I can help them and their business do more of that in the future.”

If you could switch your job with anyone else within Spotlight Media for a day, whose job would you want? Why?
“Probably, Photographer Paul Flessland. I love photography. I am not really good at it unless you count anything done on an iPhone.”

Last question, most important, if Hollywood made a movie about your life, who would you like to see cast as you? Why?
“I got to go with my man, Justin Bieber. We have to see if he has any acting chops.
Reason: C’mon, it’s the Biebs!”

Huong Tran | Web/Digital Coordinator

Huong Tran

“I was born in Vietnam, went to high school in the Twin Cities. I recently graduated from Concordia College with a degree in business marketing and organizational leadership. Prior to Spotlight Media, I worked on the college’s website for 2 years and had a couple internships in the F-M area on social media and graphic design. I’m very passionate about supporting non-profit and small local businesses.”

What kinds of hobbies and interests do you have outside of work?
“I love going to local community events, hanging out with creative folks at local coffee shops, eating tons of European chocolate. Sometimes when I feel a little artsy, I would do some water coloring and think of myself as an Huong-Picasso.”

What’s your favorite book and/or movie?
“Kingsman! It’s a hilarious, action-packed movie about a spy organization, which makes me want to become a professional secret agent—maybe it should be my next job!”

Share something about yourself that would surprise us?
“I know four languages and a couple web languages. Talk to me in Korean, Chinese and even Javascript!”

What drew you to Spotlight Media originally?
“I don’t remember how I got to my Spotlight Media application, but when I was invited in for an interview at Spotlight and first met Editorial Director Andrew Jason and Web Editor Samantha Stark. I was amazed by their passion and love for the F-M community, not to mention how much I love creative people. I’ve then decided this place should be my new home after college.”

What are you looking forward to the most with your new position?
“The best thing I love so far is sharing an open office with our very talented editorial team. So, besides looking forward to growing my web and e-commerce knowledge, I’m hoping to come in excited every day and get inspired by our very own creative team members.”

If you could switch your job with anyone else within Spotlight Media for a day, whose job would you want? Why?
“Mike Dragosavich. I’ve only followed Mike to a client meeting once, but I’ve learned so much from him. I want to see how Mike fits 72 hours of work into his 24-hour day. Plus, Mike is pretty good with web too, so I wouldn’t worry so much about him being the web coordinator that one day I get to be the CEO.”

Last question, most important, if Hollywood made a movie about your life, who would you like to see cast as you? Why?
“Emma Watson! She is a strong and independent individual who empowers young women all over the world. She is one of my role models and I don’t think anyone could possibly dislike her. Oh, and she has an accent and so do I.”

Seth Habhegger | Distribution & Circulation Manager

“I started out as a child, raised among the snowy wilds of rural Blackhoof Township in Carlton County in the lovely state of Minnesota. As the years progressed, I grew in knowledge and rapport, working in the financial industry and educating himself at the fine institutions of the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater and The New School, which is located within the soaring heights of New York City. Thus inculcated, I had the supreme pleasure of being hired by Spotlight Media in May of 2017.”

What are you looking forward to the most with your new position?
“Thrilled to the utmost, I’m looking forward to helping create a new department within the company and using all of my accumulated knowledge and skills to help Spotlight Media be a ‘beacon’ to the Fargo-Moorhead community.”

What kinds of hobbies and interests do you have outside of work?
“On the personal side, I enjoy spending time with my lovely wife Beth and two young sons Rhone and Anders. I also enjoy reading, writing, singing, and helping Cass Act Players, a theater production group of which I’m a founding member, stage its first musical in 2018.”

Share something about yourself that would surprise us?
“Not many people know this but I once presented a paper about pop songs that relate to the apocalypse at a conference in Oxford, England. It was jolly good!”

Last question, most important, if Hollywood made a movie about your life, who would you like to see cast as you? Why?
“Alas, the only person who could portray me in a film would be the late, great Orson Welles. I just hope they use the younger version.”
