JASON KANE, who is Citizen Kane (right?) is the new Promotion Manager for Raycom’s WBTV in Charlotte, the Queen City. He began just this Monday and moves into his new place this weekend. Yep, he hit the ground running at the CBS affil, what with all that’s been going on. Despite the hectic pace, he sounded cool and very energized about his new slot. Jason is originally from Toledo, Ohio. How did he get from Toledo to NC? It happened when he was doing graphics and animation for an ad agency who sent him to Raleigh. He loved it…and became interested in news and before you knew it, he was using his agency skills for a TV station; he was Sr. Writer and Producer for WNCN in Raleigh, working with CSD ROBBY THOMAS. They produced an amazing and award-winning spot about school busses…you should ask them about it. Then, Robby took the WBTV CSD slot. But now, the two are working together, just further down I-85. Working with people who click is a real gift. Big Well Dunne! Jason.
