You never know when something will happen that changes your life. It doesn’t have to mean a truck hits you. For instance, just going to hear someone speak can turn your life in a new and wonderful direction. This is what happened to ED CRONY. Back when the Chester, IL native was in college, he was taking some broadcast classes and they had a speaker come from the NBC affiliate in nearby St. Louis. Then-CSD of KDSK RICH BRASE brought a tape of promos done at the station, and Ed was fascinated. As a matter of fact, he ended up interning at KSDK (and eventually working there, too). The rest, as they say… Now, Ed is heading east with his wife (she’s the pretty one next to Ed in the picture) and little daughter to run his first promo department. He’s been hired to be the CSD for Nexstar’s CBS affiliate in Rochester, WROC where he’ll begin in early June. The Crony family will make the journey from Denver, where he’s been Sr. Producer at CBS’ KCNC for the last 12 years. Ed’s also worked in Kansas City. Being on the East Coast will put the new little Crony closer to mama’s side of the family, and Ed’s side of the family are a stop on the way to their new city. Congrats and Well Dunne! Ed.
OK, for those trivia fans among you. Chester, IL is home to a famous cartoon character. Well, the guy who drew the famous cartoon character. Who is it? Answers tomorrow.
