TONY REED is going to spend Spring Break in Florida. Well, actually, he’s going to be spending all his time in Florida. He’s been chosen to be the new Promotions Manager of WESH, Hearst’s NBC affil in Orlando. He’ll be making the switch from the Hearst operation in Albuquerque, KOAT, where he’s been for the last seven years. The Fort Wayne, IN native is a grad of Mizzou (go Tigers!) so of course, he’s a favorite. Tony will be joining the creative team that is headed up by CSD STEVE RIFKIN, another fave. These poor guys are going to have to find a good seafood place for visiting friends…really they will. Of course, The Big Orlando is where Hearst Corporate marketing head SUZANNE GRETHEN did her magic (no relation to the basketball team there), so Tony is going to be knee deep in creative energy. And perhaps he’ll find his way to Sarasota where the circus winters. That’s him in the picture during a trapeze class. Well Dunne! Tony.
And yes, that means KOAT is going to be looking for a new CSD…which makes this a Job Alert.

Think About This: "This is the lesson: never give in, never give in, never, never, never, never—in nothing, great or small, large or petty—never give in except to convictions of honour and good sense. Never yield to force; never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy." ~ Winston Churchill
