I worked at WINK in the creative services department in the mid-’90s. It was one of the highlights of my career.
Many of the people who worked at WINK while I was there have gone on to major roles as anchors or reporters, international correspondents for CNN or national correspondents in Washington. Some are deans of the journalism schools at major universities, while others are leading local newsrooms around the country.
Some who worked there when I was there are still working at WINK, playing major roles in news, sales, management and creative services.
If you’re a creative services producer looking for a place with an outstanding news product, a collaborative team approach, the latest equipment, (WINK was the first station in the country to use non-linear editing), and work for a multimedia company that’s locally owned, you will not find a better TV station than WINK. Call me if you want to discuss this opening.
Not only was it a terrific place for me professionally, but living there was like living in paradise. You’ll work in one of the most beautiful parts of the country, Fort Myers, in southwest Florida. Warm sunny days, blue water, white sandy beaches, a major tourist destination for people from around the world. Naples, Sanibel and Captiva, Bonita Beach, and Fort Myers Beach are just a few of the places to hang out when not working.
Fort Myers is on the west coast of Florida, about two-hours south of Tampa. U.S. News & Report designated Fort Myers as the No. 1 place to retire in the country. I rank it as the No. 1 best place to live until you retire. Nestled alongside the Caloosahatchee River, Fort Myers is a midsize metro area. It has retained its small-town heritage though, with a charming downtown lined with shops and restaurants, many of which are dog-friendly. Museums, parades, festivals, theaters, parks, historical sites and art galleries pepper the metro area and its social calendar.
Locals enjoy dining in the metro area’s various restaurants, exploring the River District and attending the annual Edison Festival of Lights. Sports enthusiasts can watch the Boston Red Sox and Minnesota Twins baseball teams during their spring training camps.
The median home price is $220,000 and there is no state income tax in Florida.
