“Taking a bite out of the Big Apple, BECKY SMITH joins WNYW/WWOR as a Promotions Producer. Becky comes from WHNS FOX Carolina, in Greenville, SC. She was responsible for taking FOX Carolina’s digital and social media outlets from last place, to first in the market, in just under six months. Before coming to WHNS, Becky started her TV marketing career at another Greenville-based station, WSPA/WYCW. She was a daily topical producer for the 5, 6 & 11p newscasts, all of which maintained its number one position in market ratings. At each station, Becky has continued to exceed expectations and produce quality on-air and online promotions that support brand and product images. She’s excited to explore more of her creative talents and work with an exceptional group at FOX5.” Thanks to KEN ASHLEY for not only sharing, but in writing about his new creative team member ever so well – and fun! Ken is Promotion Manager at Fox NYC. Well Dunne! Becky and Ken.

The Greenville-Spartanburg SC Visitor and Convention Bureau isn’t doing a very good job. Imho. Nobody knows where these two cities are or that they constitute Nielsen market #36 when you throw in Asheville, NC. BMW calls it their US home…the European bound flights out of the airport can’t be matched by another airport of that size. And, among other things, they have the best onion rings in the continental USA. Yeah, there’s more. So the opening for a Marketing Manager should be like a bright light drawing attention. That, my friends, is a Job Alert on steroids. Call letters involved are WSPA, the Media General CBS affil.
Why the opening? The current CSD is following her heart…leaving the market to join her fiancé. Isn’t that just lovely?! MEGAN HANNIGAN is engaged and her fiancé lives in the St. Louis area. So Ms. H, a personal favorite who is also a Mizzou grad, will be heading to St. Louis in early March. She’s no stranger to the Gateway City, having worked at KMOV TV hard on the banks of the Mississippi. She’s also been in Tulsa and Columbus, GA. Bubbly Megan doesn’t have a job lined up yet, but I’m sure the smartest people under the Arch will grab her fast. Well Dunne! and best wishes Megan!
BECKY SMITH and EMILY ABRAHAM will miss here. Both creatives are hard at work at WSPA, writing and producing promos. Becky is a local lady who landed a great job right out of college. Her diploma is from Furman. Emily, described as a ‘real go-getter’ makes the transition to TV from radio, where she was learning about promotions and sales. She holds a degree from Winthrope U, where they turn out a lot of very talented and skilled TV types.
