You really have to love marketing if you choose to move away from the beach and take a job inland…which is exactly what lovely LEAH MAYS is going to do in less than two weeks. Ms. Mays is going to be the new girl at The Meridian Family of Stations in, as the name says, Meridian, Mississippi. She’ll be a mere 168 miles from the gulls, pelicans and waves, so it’s not like she’s going to be all that far, eh? Leah has been Promotions and Social Media Director for Fox affil WXXV in Gulfport and helped sign on the NBC and MyTV affils there. The Minot State U grad has also honed her promo chops at WLOX in Biloxi. Up in Meridian, she’ll be wrangling creative for WGBC, WNDM and the HD Fox affil. Great big Well Dunne! Leah.
Sorry there’s no pix again…just haven’t had time to fix this…but it will happen…
