Despite the snow, Boston WCVB’s RUSS NELLIGAN was hard at work and he wrote this: “After 8 years and 100 mile daily round trip commute, MATT LEBOWITZ will be working in his back yard, taking over the reigns as Creative Services Director at Providence RI’s WJAR. Matt is awesome – WJAR is very lucky to have him. We’ll miss him dearly, but we are delighted for him. His auto mechanic is filing a protest". That is why there’s a Sr. Promo Producer slot open in Beantown and why we’re so happy for Matt. He’s a James Madison U grad (I wonder if he remembers screenwriter KAREN LUTZ before she wrote Legally Blonde…) who also has a Masters in writing from Johns Hopkins. Wow. His first job in TV was in Richmond, VA as a production assistant at WTVR before getting hired as a promo producer at Sinclair’s flagship duop in Baltimore. He went to WBAL in Balto before heading to WJLA in DC and then the New England Spots Network in Boston. His new job will find him in Providence where he once did promo for WPRI/WNAC. And yes, I just about guarantee he will be thrilled not to spend so much time in his car! A big, snow covered Well Dunne! Matt!
