It’s a small world after all. Did you know there are two WILL HARRIS’ who do TV promotion? And they both have worked in Seattle? The Will Harris who is the focus of today’s column is a grad of East Carolina U who is now the Promo Manager of Sinclair’s KOMO TV, the ABC affil in the aforementioned Seattle. Will got promoted in January. He’s worked his way up the ladder at KOMO first as a producer, then specialist and now the PM title. Excellent. Along the way and before decamping the SE, Mr. Will did promo at Hearst’s WXII in the Greensboro-High Point market. But wait – there’s more. This Will (the other promo Will Harris is CSD at Cox’s Fox affil in Tulsa and was Promotion Manager in Seattle at KIRO – reread first sentence) has a sideline that is very fun. He’s a comic book expert who blogs about the vast and growing fan base of comic books, including films with comic bases as well as conventions. It’s called comicsblend.com. Check it out but first say Well Dunne! Will Harris.
