Mike Newman joins WHBQ from Cox’s ABC affiliate in Orlando, WFTV, where he was the senior promotions producer. “My wife Erin and I can’t wait to experience the food, culture and music of Memphis and make it our new home,” said Newman.
TVNewsCheck’s MediaJobCenter was busy last week. Jobs were posted by 5 different broadcast companies, some well-known like Cox and Meredith, and some by lesser known media companies like Lockwood, Waypoint and Morgan Murphy.
WATN, the ABC affiliate in Memphis owned by Nexstar, wants you to consider their opening in Memphis for a creative services director. In addition to WATN, you’ll also oversee their Fox and CW affiliates. The team there is committed to being LOCAL, as in Local Memphis.
Back-to-school promos, promos that introduce new talent to the morning newscasts, and a promo where the anchor stands on a kitchen counter talking to a viewer are just a few new local TV news promos shown here. Don’t miss the ‘Elvis is leaving the building’ promo at the bottom.
