You know it’s a weird winter when Portland, ME has less snow than Baltimore, MD. Such is 2010. And yet this fact hasn’t deterred CHRIS FARRIS. He’s the new Sr. Writer Producer at Hearst’s WBAL TV in Balto. And we know about the reverse snow amounts because Chris makes the journey down I-95 from Hearst’s ABC affil in Portland, WMTW. The Kansas native (yeah Topeka) and Jayhawk (yeah KU) has also worked doing a little commercial production at NBC affil KSNT in Topeka before leaving the cornfields behind and plunging into the more exciting landscape of the promo world. Well Dunne! Chris. Looking forward to hearing and seeing super creative from you.
