It’s mercury retrograde which means it’s a time of redoing, rethinking, and returning if you put store in the stars and their influence on our earthly doings. As if on cue (see how that happens – the universe knows!) WKRN CSD RICK SNYDER shares that his new Topical Producer, ERIC PERRY, is a station returnee. Eric worked at WKRN as a news photog a while ago and is now tackling the perfect transition to marketing by doing topicals. Excellent. (Did you say that to yourself like Keanu Reeves would say it? Yeah, you did…) Eric is a Western Kentucky U grad who studied broadcasting and production and got his start in TV at WKYU in Bowling Green before becoming a news shooter in Nashville. He’s also been a Video Production Coordinator at Thrive Creations where he honed his creative working with clients. Rick is a great boss and the Nashville ABC affil is already lovin’ Eric. Well Dunne!
