National search set to find next tourism director

BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - Tourism leaders thought they'd have their next executive director in place by now. But, WLOX News has been told the initial search didn't produce the right candidate.

So, a national search firm is about to be hired to find South Mississippi's next tourism director. And that search may begin next week.

Whoever is ultimately hired will oversee an agency that now promotes tourism for all three coastal counties.
