Who left the door wide open for the polar air to rush down and make this coming week uber-cold? Well, one person not worrying about the freezing snap is MICHAEL PARENTE, who is not only happily ensconced in Miami (average high this week is 75 degrees – thanks Weather Channel) is all hot for a different reason – his new job as Creative Services Director of Sunbeam’s FOX affil, WSNV. He’s no stranger to South Florida, having been Promotion Manager at Graham Media Group’s ABC affil WPLG for quite some time. BTW, Graham Media Group was called Post Newsweek but made the moniker change in July. Back to Michael, who has worked in Memphis as CSD at WMC as well as launched WBFS in Miami. He did it all while at WFLA, including graphics, after getting his start in TV promo at Rockford, IL’s WTVO. The Wayne State Grad is one lucky and happy man kicking off 2015 in the best way ever. Well Dunne! Michael.
