Same great city…different office. CARRIE KING is a Chicago lady through and through and she’s switching offices in Chicago, decamping the Trib where she has been Regional Vice President Innovation & Imagination at Tribune Creative Group | Central U.S. Why is she leaving Trib, where she’s practically grown up handling such promo slots as CSD WGN America and Director of Creative Services for CLTV News? She’s the new VP of Creative Services at FOX WFLD and WPWR in the Windy City. She began today (but only if you are reading this on Monday July 9…otherwise, not so much). She’s got a real handle on Chicago, which is one of those unique markets that really does have their own way of thinking… and speaking. She’s studied at Lake Forest’s Barat College and at the amazing School of the Art Institute of Chicago. I know she lives on the northside, so let’s guess she’s a Cubs fan. She’s going to love working with Well Dunne!s NICK SANABRIA. Well Dunne! Carrie.
