Gary Jaffe has been announced as the new KIAH 39 Tribune Company NewsFix Imaginator multiple station sources tell me.
This guy has one hell of a resume.
He has produced films and was part of the launch team for The Tube Music Network (which aired on 39.2). Jaffe also worked in TV stations (CBS4 WFOR/UPN33) and has run his own production company called Concept Vision Media, Inc.
Jaffe starts the KIAH 39 NewsFix revolution August 23rd. I mean by that he starts at the station. NewsFix won't reportedly debut until October.
Maybe next time I apply for a job, I won't spend so much time blogging about the process. I never actually got around to applying since I was still getting suggestions as of today (was planning on the doing the deed tomorrow).
Oh well, this guy sounds like he has good experience for this gig. I also imagine Tribune Company had its eye on Jaffe for a while already considering how fast he was hired.
