Nothing like being closer to home. Sure, airplanes get you anywhere in the world. But the physical closeness to home and those we love is, as the commercials tout, priceless. So it’s never a real surprise to hear of someone who has worked in a market taking a slot closer to the place they were raised. Case in point: THOMAS WEGMANN. He’s been the CSD down in Harlingen, Texas for ABC affil KRGV for the last few years. A Green Bay guy, with a degree from University of Wisconsin-Green Bay to boot, he no doubt knew that Harlingen is a tad over 1,600 miles from the southern tip of Texas to GB. Whew. That’s a 24 hour drive, traffic not included. His new job as CSD with ABC in South Bend at Weigel’s WBND will put him just tad over 300 miles away. A whopping 1,300 mile savings. Mr. W’s first TV slot was punching newscasts for WFRV in GB before writing and producing for creative services then heading up a live, local morning show. He made the switch to WBAY in the same market, in creative services, before heading to the Rio Grande Valley to head up the department at KRGV. He’ll no doubt look forward to autumn in his new city – all those beautiful colored leaves are a rarity in the Lone Star State. Well Dunne! Thomas.
