You might say I’m the new guy in town. My wife and I are moving here from New York. I’ve spent the last 10 years working for NBCU in New York. There was something great about working at 30 Rock when I started. But after a few years it kind of wears on you.
Mind you I grew up in NY. But it’s one of those cities where you’re always on. Sometimes you just want to kick back, relax and chill. That can be a little tough in NY. True, it’s the city that never sleeps and you can always find a store open to sell you milk, ice cream, gourmet foods or anthing else you want.
However, I’m fiinding Atlanta has a tremendous amount to offer and I’m really looking forward to it. We’re renting an apartment in the midtown area. It’s just the two of us know. Our oldest son is “off the payroll” and the other one is graduating college this year and will be heading off to grad school. (Je’s going to study Bio Organic Chemistry. He DIDN’T get it from me. My wife has the brains. I work in TV where we often joke “this isn’t brain surgery.)
Many of you may not be familiar with CBS46 TV. My hope and goal is where going to change that.
I hope through this blog to be able to talk about how we select and cover stories. I’ll write about our strategies and the challenges we face as journalists.
This is also your chance to ask me questions, offer suggestions and comment on what we’re doing.
I’ll post the appropriate questions here along with my answers and opions.
So feel free to check in a couple of times a week and provide feedback.
I’m looking forward to it.
