OK, metaphorically close your eyes and picture a guy in love with radio and football. No, it’s not Bobby Costas. This metaphorical person went on to TV marketing after he played Fullback for two teams – the Pittsburgh Power Football team and the Lehigh Valley Steelhawks Professional Indoor Football. VERY impressive. He transitioned to TV as the Creative Services Director and Promotion Manager for WVVA, the Quincy Media NBC station for Bluefield, West Virginia. He decided to leave the mountains behind and went to work with SHERRY CARPETER at Graham Media’s WJXT in Jacksonville, where the beaches are pretty sweet. Now, he’s combining mountains (kinda) and water (think Ohio River) in his new job in Louisville. We’re talking about BRANDON LINK, newly named Assistant Creative Services Director at Hearst’s CBS station in the Kentucky Derby town. All together now…on three…hup, two, Well Dunne! Brandon.

Yes, of course it’ still copyrighted by me.
If one is good, and two is twice as good, then three is over the moon. Three is the magic number for WJXT’s CSD SHERRY CARPENTER, who has added some fab talent to her team in Jacksonville. We’ll let her and her new hires take over (I’ll put my feet up and fix a margarita today…bonus!):
BRANDON LINK: “I hail from WVVA! A station tucked away in Southern WV. I went from Master control, Commercial producer to Promotion manager in a little under 2 years. Before I stumbled into TV, I played football for the Pittsburgh Power in the AFL (Arena football league). I am originally from Cumberland, MD. I’ve been playing guitar for 12 years, and I have a 4 yr old black lab/pit mix named Nina! I’m probably the biggest/scariest looking Promotion Producer in the country!” (Take what you like from that. Haha.)
STUART BOSLOW is the new Executive Producer of a daily talk and entertainment show on WJXT, launching later this year. Stuart joined the station from Dallas, where he launched a talk and lifestyle show at KTXD. Previously he was Senior Special Projects Producer at KTVT.
Just hired today, as in Tuesday! RYAN DOLBY was our intern, and was hired to help support production of 3 weekly Jacksonville Jaguars shows. As the official station of our NFL Franchise team, folks in creative services help produce the coaches show, Everbank Jaguars Gameday, and Jaguars All Access. Ryan has a Bachelor’s Degree in Communication, Concentration in production from University of North Florida.
Job Alert – Sherry and Stuart are working frantically to hire 7 more people– co-hosts, MMJ’s, producers, bookers and tech support. Check out Graham Media’s WJXT’s job postings.
Sincere condolences to PHIL KRAFT, Senior Creative Producer for KGTV in San Diego, on the loss of his Grandmother.
EXCELLENT read…BILL HARTNETT’s blog entitled Social TV Grows Up and Gets Real.
Changes are as hot as the temps…tomorrow we tell about the new CSD at WNCN in Raleigh and have great news about a favorite with a syndicated show. And the already promised details on the lovely new KXAN CSD will be forthcoming. Plus a real find for DAVID HERSHEY at KTVT. Come back – bring salt.
Oh, this is the 1625th post of WDT’s focus on the people of TV marketing. How fast the children grow…
