How delightful to write about one of the best. Talkin’ about JIM THOMAS, who is going to start next week wrangling the creative at Tribune’s KDVR/KWGN in Denver. It’s Fox/CW respectively. Jim has been running his own consulting since he left Magid where he handled marketing for their client stations, and did a marvelous job of it, being a marketing pro and not a newsie who believes they know marketing. Jim is a Penn State grad who has a ton of experience particularly with the Journal Broadcast Group, which blended with Scripps. He held the title of VP Marketing New Media and Programming and even was an interim GM for them at one time. The man is as creative as he is solid. Great choice for Denver. A personal Well Dunne! Jim – to you my friend.
Meanwhile, an ad that got rejected from the WDT blog job posting wants someone who can: do all news graphics for in show and marketing, shoot, write and produce image and topicals, do community outreach events and spots, create spots for advertisers, do the daily logs and post on social media through the day plus, my favorite – receive constructive criticism. And we wonder why it’s hard to fill open marketing slots.
