The Greenville-Spartanburg SC Visitor and Convention Bureau isn’t doing a very good job. Imho. Nobody knows where these two cities are or that they constitute Nielsen market #36 when you throw in Asheville, NC. BMW calls it their US home…the European bound flights out of the airport can’t be matched by another airport of that size. And, among other things, they have the best onion rings in the continental USA. Yeah, there’s more. So the opening for a Marketing Manager should be like a bright light drawing attention. That, my friends, is a Job Alert on steroids. Call letters involved are WSPA, the Media General CBS affil.
Why the opening? The current CSD is following her heart…leaving the market to join her fiancé. Isn’t that just lovely?! MEGAN HANNIGAN is engaged and her fiancé lives in the St. Louis area. So Ms. H, a personal favorite who is also a Mizzou grad, will be heading to St. Louis in early March. She’s no stranger to the Gateway City, having worked at KMOV TV hard on the banks of the Mississippi. She’s also been in Tulsa and Columbus, GA. Bubbly Megan doesn’t have a job lined up yet, but I’m sure the smartest people under the Arch will grab her fast. Well Dunne! and best wishes Megan!
BECKY SMITH and EMILY ABRAHAM will miss here. Both creatives are hard at work at WSPA, writing and producing promos. Becky is a local lady who landed a great job right out of college. Her diploma is from Furman. Emily, described as a ‘real go-getter’ makes the transition to TV from radio, where she was learning about promotions and sales. She holds a degree from Winthrope U, where they turn out a lot of very talented and skilled TV types.
