We go totally coast-to-coast today. Wow. Let’s start in one of my favorite haunts – Tampa Bay. BayNews9 has hired a new Marketing Producer. Say hello to KELLY CLORE. Kelly comes over from Media General’s WFLA TV, NBC Channel 8 and starts on March 24th. I wonder if she’ll be crossing the Gandy or perhaps the Frankin Bridge if she’s commuting from the Tampa side to the St. Pete side of the water, where BayNews9 is located. Kelly has an extensive background in television and marketing. A grad of Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, she began her career at WBBH/WZVN TV in Ft. Meyers, just down the road from Tampa. She worked as a managing editor for the University of Virginia Hospital in Charlottesville before moving to WRIC TV in Richmond, VA as Promotions Manager. Kelly returned to Florida to work for Cox’s WFTV in Orlando before joining Channel 8. Well Dunne! on the new gig, Kelly. Thanks for the info LINDA GRANGER, who’s heading up the whole creative end of BayNews9. Bravo!
Nearly 3,000 miles away on the Pacific, we hear from CBS’ KPIX in the City by the Bay. They’ve gotten JOHN KEENAN to move up the coast to San Francisco from San Diego to work as a Writer/Producer/Editor for the creative team. John will be reporting to DEE JOYCE. He’s making the switch from CBS affil KFMB where he was working nights as a promo producer. For the last 20 years, he’s been living in the San Diego area, namely Pacific Beach. Nice work for a guy born in Ridgewood, New Jersey! Well Dunne!
