My new job is...

I've been telling you a little about searching for my next career opportunity after my employment ends at Fox 11 KMSB on January 31.

After weeks of searching and interviewing, I'm excited to announce that I have accepted an offer to be the Executive Producer of the Morning Blend TV show on KGUN 9 here in Tucson starting February 6.  If you haven't watched the show, it airs at 11 a.m. weekdays (with a replay at noon on CW Channel 58) and its a one hour local lifestyle/entertainment show.

I made the transition from radio to television in October 2011 after my job ended at Mega 106.3.  Working as a news producer at Fox 11 gave me the opportunity to learn new skills.  It also demonstrated that I could successfully transition to television.  That turned out to be an important component in landing this position.

I will be returning to Journal Broadcast Group, the company I worked for before Fox 11, but on the television side.  Its an amazing opportunity and I am excited to get started.  The people who work on the show are fantastic.  Plus, I will be working again with the same wonderful group of people I had the privilege of working with for six years during my first run at Journal.

Who says you can't go home?
