LAS VEGAS (AP) — The deputy director of the Nevada Arts Council is going to fill the top job, at least temporarily.

The Nevada Appeal reports that Linda Ficklin was named the interim executive director of the state agency while a national search is conducted to replace longtime executive director Susan Boskoff.

Boskoff retired last month.
