PAUL HELLEBUSCH is a St. Louis guy who is one amazing artist. With a wicked sense of humor to boot. After one particularly nasty ice storm in St. Louis back in the late 90’s, when he was Art Director at KDNL in St. Louis, Paul jumped at the chance to live in balmy Tampa, FL and took the job of Design Director at WFLA. Well, now Mr. H has been given a big ol’ promotion and was sounding very upbeat about this turn of events. What does Paul’s new business card read? Marketing, Creative and Graphics Director for Florida Communications Group, which is WFLA TV, The Tampa Tribune and their impressive online sites. All Media General. This deserves a very special Well Dunne! Paul.
Job Alert – Before the first snowflake falls (is that a country song?) think palm trees and Orlando, Florida where CHRIS FRIEDRICHS VP Creative Services at FOX in The Big O is on the hunt for a really creative promo mind along with excellent AVID skills with a great personality. Also a team player. If this is you, hunt down Chris.

Job Alert – They call the open slot Producer/Director but it basically boils down to being a one man band marketing department for Rocky Mountain PBS.
