Trading the nearly-Gulf Coast locale of Houston for the honestly Gulf Coast locale of Tampa is GAYLE HALVORSEN. She’s headed to the Tampa Bay area to become the new Promotion Manager for Scripp’s WFTS, working with super CSD DENNIS ELSBURY. Gayle is taking leave of her Local Programming Producer/Creative Services Producer position at Tribune’s KIAH. She’s a grad of Southern Illinois University Carbondale (wonder if she’s a St. Louis Cardinals fan…) who has worked at KSNW in Wichita as well as KHOU, Belo’s CBS affil in Houston. Along the way, she was a creative for Pug House Productions. She’s going to love Tampa Bay and is en route now. Plus she gets to work with Well Dunne! Talent’s RICH VANSLYKE. Well Dunne! Gayle.
Job Correction – Raleigh’s WNCN isn’t looking for a Marketing Manager. They’re looking for a Promotion Manager. Imagine how much fun that was for STEVE PATRICK to read while at his Grandfather’s funeral. Ouch. Promo Manager candidates, let Steve know you’re interested.
