What was the last big adventure you took? JOHN RICE went to Alaska. Sure, he was doing a media job there, which is the same career path as in the lower 48. He’s been CSD at KTVA in Anchorage, but actually overseeing creative for the Denali stations throughout the state, which is bigger than Texas. It’s been a major adventure. Just driving to Alaska is worthy of a binge watch series. That was a few years ago, and as exciting as the adventure has been, it was 4,381 miles, give or take, away from family. Family was the draw that is bringing John back to North Carolina. He’ll begin in mid-July as the CSD for Nexstar’s WNCN in the North Carolina capital. NC is a familiar haunt for him – he was in Charlotte at WCNC heading creative before going up South Street to WBTV in the same role. John’s a Texas Longhorn who has been in the promo biz for KHOU and various freelance callings in Houston. An avid cyclist, he’ll enjoy the rolling terrain of the Triangle but I know he’ll miss the moose. Well Dunne! John.
