This is officially the first real “back to work” day of ’08. Sure, we’ve been working, but the energy wasn’t there. Now, you can feel things moving forward.
The folks at Bay News 9 down in the Tampa/St. Pete market have a new Marketing Designer. JEFF KRENCIK is joining the creative folks after being over at WFLA for the last two or so years. He went to college at State University of New York and has a BFA in Graphic Design and began his career up in cold Buffalo, where he worked at WIVB and the VSP Marketing Group. Once down amongst the palms, Jeff did part-time graphic work at WTSP before getting the gig at WFLA. I hear he’s a Buffalo Sabres fan, which might not be all that well received in the land of the Tampa Lightening. For those of you sports challenged, its ice hockey. Thanks to LINDA GRANGER for the update.
Over in Cincinnati comes word that GARY ANAPLE is the new Senior Promotion Producer at WSTR-TV My64 in Cincinnati. He’s leaving WXIX FOX19, also in Cincy, where he put in 10 years as promo producer, then as on-air promotion manager. Thanks to PETER FERRARO for the info. AND he reminds me that he’s still looking for a topical producer at the FOX Baltimore station. He offers “Free bushel of crabs, a large can of Old Bay and a case of Natty Boh’s as a signing bonus if they start before Feb sweeps (just kidding of course…unless that’s what it takes).” Well Dunne! Gary.
Keep your ears peeled and listen to NPR for my college friend Diana Briggs, who was interviewed at the Loaf & Ladle soup restaurant in downtown Exeter, New Hampshire. Yes, she’s FINALLY decided whom to vote for in the NH primary.
