Isn’t it great to hear about someone getting a promotion to a new, more exciting job and title? There are days when one wonders if hard work pays off or is even noted. Promotions erase any doubt. Today’s Promo promotee (new phrase – rather keen on it) is CHRISSY SELLERS who is the spanking new Promotion Manager at Jacksonville’s WJXT. Chrissy (whose formal name is Christine) is a Florida lady, her hometown is Gainesville, who has worked her way up the chain and will now be #2 to CSD SHERRY CARPENTER at the Post Newsweek – oops, I mean Graham Media, indie. She’s a Gator (which to non-Floridians means she has a degree from the University of Florida) who took to promo with ease after getting her foot in the door as a production lady. Promo producing is what she’s been up to recently. Best yet – word is she’s the ray of sunshine on any given day. That’s a hallmark of a leader. Looks like Jax is going to be a hotter market than usual this summer. Well Dunne! Chrissy!
Tune in tomorrow for the latest on WSOC’s new CSD…a royally named city with a jump start on new marketing.
