Lovely LEAH MAYS is about to save a lot of time, a lot of gas and gas money, as well as wear and tear on her car. She’s returning to Raycom’s WLOX in Biloxi as the Brand Manager. She’s been commuting from her Oceanside home there to Hattiesburg for the last few years. The 75 miles drive takes about an hour. Hattiesburg is home to CBS affil WHLT where she helmed the marketing,and creative. Except for her first job in Bismark, ND (where she went to college), Ms. Leah has been in love with the Gulf Coast and has worked doing broadcast and station marketing for Meridian’s WGBC and Gulfport’s WXXV. Sticking closer to the ocean is going to be a real “ahhhh” feeling. A great big Well Dunne! Leah.

You really have to love marketing if you choose to move away from the beach and take a job inland…which is exactly what lovely LEAH MAYS is going to do in less than two weeks. Ms. Mays is going to be the new girl at The Meridian Family of Stations in, as the name says, Meridian, Mississippi. She’ll be a mere 168 miles from the gulls, pelicans and waves, so it’s not like she’s going to be all that far, eh? Leah has been Promotions and Social Media Director for Fox affil WXXV in Gulfport and helped sign on the NBC and MyTV affils there. The Minot State U grad has also honed her promo chops at WLOX in Biloxi. Up in Meridian, she’ll be wrangling creative for WGBC, WNDM and the HD Fox affil. Great big Well Dunne! Leah.
