Exotic south Florida offers the ideal environment for gators to thrive. Not just the kind floating about in the canals but the student kind…the grads from the University of Florida. They’re the Gators, as most of you know, and one of them has recently gotten a promotion at Miami’s WSVN, the Sunbeam FOX affiliate. CSD MICHAEL PARENTE sent word that LAUREN MUSKOVAC is now a full-fledged writer producer on his creative team. She had been working as the Creative Services Coordinating Producer and she did a great job. Now she’s donned several hats at the station, including video tape op. While in Gainesville, where UofF is located, she interned at Vista Satellite and got her start in TV at WUFT and WRUF. Sounds like she is One To Watch…sending her a sunny Well Dunne! Lauren.

Who left the door wide open for the polar air to rush down and make this coming week uber-cold? Well, one person not worrying about the freezing snap is MICHAEL PARENTE, who is not only happily ensconced in Miami (average high this week is 75 degrees – thanks Weather Channel) is all hot for a different reason – his new job as Creative Services Director of Sunbeam’s FOX affil, WSNV. He’s no stranger to South Florida, having been Promotion Manager at Graham Media Group’s ABC affil WPLG for quite some time. BTW, Graham Media Group was called Post Newsweek but made the moniker change in July. Back to Michael, who has worked in Memphis as CSD at WMC as well as launched WBFS in Miami. He did it all while at WFLA, including graphics, after getting his start in TV promo at Rockford, IL’s WTVO. The Wayne State Grad is one lucky and happy man kicking off 2015 in the best way ever. Well Dunne! Michael.
