New Newsroom Blog Update

The problem with Brooke's story not downloading has been fixed. However, the problem with the horrible photography has not.

2004 Grad Makes Good

Hi everyone. I am officially a New Yorker and start my real "grown up" job Monday. I'll be the executive producer's assistant with Good Morning America on ABC. Hopefully I'll enjoy myself as much as I did at KUJH. After spending lots of time in NY this summer I definitely know I'm not in Kansas anymore...

Congrats to my girl Julie. Now that you'll be spending more time in KC, you can calm my nerves about my wedding in two months and I'm 100% positive my dad will find you and complain he's tired of spending money "on this damn wedding."

I too have a new job as Research Director for Missouri Victory 2004, the Kerry/Edwards Campaign in MO.

I hope to see some of you at my wedding!!!


New Newsroom

For those of you who might not be regularly checking out the blog detailing the construction of the new multimedia newsroom at KU (and honestly that would include me), you might want to take a look:
There's a video tour from Rick Musser that took me forever to download and would be better if he was properly mic'd, but it is kind of interesting.  There is also a story from KUJH alum Brooke Wehner that's supposedly about the construction, but I couldn't get it to load. 
Well, maybe this blogging thing from them needs a little work.  But check it out anyway.  It is interesting how they are gutting Dole and starting from scratch.  And then the newspaper people move in with the cool kids.
When I'm back in Lawrence in October, I'll go down there and check it out and report back.

New Job!!!

Hey guys! Just wanted to let everyone know I'm graduating from WIBW, and moving to KCTV 5 as their new morning show producer. So this means I'll actually be able to buy groceries without worrying if my check is going to bounce. Ha ha! Word up to my saucy sidekick Salad Bar.

KSNT Update:

As of now the morning show will be expanding to 2 hours for a few weeks for olypmic coverage updates. Whether or not it will stay expanded is yet to be decided.

Also, there is a producer job open but I don't think it's for the morning but instead the 5pm and 6pm.

The news department is looking for a morning reporter to be live and do "newsroom reports" especially when there is severe weather (and being in Kansas who knows when that may be).

Finally, for those interested in working in the production department be aware that the news and production departments will be merging in things and people could change (read between the lines).

Oh and Bieke, Ken kinda cornered me last week asking for what info I had of yours. Hope it's ok I game him your e-mail address (since that's all I had).
Editor's Note: It was fine.

Well, there are definitely some jobs to be had at 27 News in beautiful Topeka, KS. There's going to be a director job (PUNCH BUTTONS LIKE ME!!!), and there already is a producer job and I think there is or will soon be a producer/reporter job for the morning show which I hear is expanding to two hours in August. Let me know if you know somebody who maybe graduated in the fall and is still looking for a job (or anyone else for that matter). My former boss GM Ken asked if I had any suggestions for people, so I'll open it up to you.
