Getting around Hot-lanta is not going to be any trouble at all for LARRY WATZMAN. Of course, traffic is going to be worse than he remembers it. He’s going back to the Georgia capital as the Director of Marketing and Creative Services at Gannett’s WXIA. The move is actually a promotion from within the Gannett family, since he has been the head creative at their Buffalo, NY NBC affil, WGRZ. Larry and family are going to love the hub of the South and he’ll be returning to a city he knows from the days of working for CNN. He’ll be back in Dixie by the middle of September. Well Dunne! Larry.
