Show of hands…who likes the movie Dirty Dancing? Now, more hands, who has seen it? Lots of hands. Well, did you know that the upstate New York town of Wortsboro was the real site of the story, even though, as Hollywood is wont to do, it was filmed elsewhere? This bit of “I might need this to win Jeopardy” info comes to us from native Wortsboro daughter, LEIGH SCHINAIA, who has taken the Creative Services Director slot at Nexstar’s WAWV/WTWO the ABC and NBC affils in Terre Haute, Indiana. Only in place a week, she knows her way around not only the station, since she has been there 12 years, but is a storyteller from the get go thanks to her work as a news photog. Most fun story she covered was interviewing, solo, Ed Asner. She tells me he’s a flirty, nice guy. Leigh has lived in Florida as well as Oklahoma while growing up and, like Mama Bear, chose Indiana because it wasn’t too hot nor too cold. A great big Well Dunne! goes out to Ms. Leigh.
