What comes to mind when you hear the word ‘hometown’. Most of us exhale and enjoy the sepia-toned memories of the place or places where we grew up, – learned and laughed and perhaps made friends we still hold dear. Some of us have one hometown, and others are blessed with knowing many places that played their part as home. ETHAN EDWARDS thinks of Smithfield, Virginia as home, and it’s a gorgeous town on the Pagan River (a tributary of the James) where, among other things, Smithfield ham become a must-have dinner item. Ethan went into the TV biz, which led him to take his degree from Elon to interning at CBS News in London during the Gulf War. Back stateside, he started in news at WFMY in Greensboro where he was an Assignment Editor then to WTKR in the Hampton Roads area. He switched to Promo Producer there, and went on to Hearst’s WDSU in New Orleans, where he met his wife. From there, it was the Land of Enchantment where he became Assistant CSD at KOAT. He’s now got his own department to run as Creative Services Director of KOKH/KOCB, the Sinclair-owned Fox and CW duop. Speaking of running, his little girl just started walking, so he’ll be running creative at work and running after her at home. It’s all great. Big Well Dunne! Ethan.

Think About This: “Through every generation of the human race, there has been a constant war, a war with fear. Those who have the courage to conquer it are made free and those who are conquered by it are made to suffer until they have the courage to defeat it, or death takes them.” ~ Alexander the Great
