It’s kinda magic cool. When MICHAEL PENIX shows up at the PROMAX Station Summit June 8th, he’ll have changed from a writer producer to a Marketing Manager. Yep, he’s one of the newest promo pros to head his own department. While in Sin City , he’ll be representing Gannett’s CBS affil WLTX in Columbia, SC, his new job which he begins the very day the Summit commences. Michael has a stellar background in TV marketing, with his last gig at ABC-owned KTRK in Houston under the muy talented TOM ASH. Mr. P has also done writing and producing at KFOR In Oklahoma City as well as KTUL in his native Tulsa. Well Dunne, Michael!

That boils down to 16.7 drinks an hour. Each had at least three ingredients. Impressive.
