Producers are harder and harder to find. So when one has need to replace a Producer, it’s always good news when the difficult task falls into place quickly. It did for LAUREN RIDGLEY, CSD at Hearst’s ABC affil WISN in Milwaukee. She lucked out and has replaced JON HELM (who moved to Hearst’s WTAE in Pittsburgh as #2 to CSD TRACY ACCORD OLIVER – you read about it here) with someone who is already sitting at his new desk. Producer DAN COAD is a Midwestener, hailing from Rockford, IL originally. He comes to WISN from Scripps/Journal’s WTMJ in the same market. At WTMJ., he was involved in a variety of projects, promo and commercial production. Dan has been into TV promo since his days in college at Illinois State. There, he was Creative Services Manager for the school’s TV-10 News…a title they created for him and woke up to the importance of marketing. Good idea TV-10. Dan also worked in his hometown at Gray’s CBS affil WFIR. Let’s start spring out with an enthusiastic Well Dunne! Dan.
Something to ponder. Phoned a media outlet in London and was treated with such intelligent warmth and friendliness, they garnered a ‘fan for life’ as well as a receptive business partner. Happened not once but several times with UK and Irish outlets. How long has it been since you could say the same for a media call on this side of the Atlantic?
