Where Are They Now - WEEK

Part two of "Where Are They Now." Part one was on former WMBDers.

This is a list of people that I worked with at WEEK or were there while I was at WMBD and got to know that way. Some I know well, others just met or knew casually. Some I've kept in contact with, others it's been a while. This list is in no way exhaustive, as I have not yet included those who are shooters, producers, managers or directors (I do keep in touch with some, so contact me if you're looking for someone). One more list will follow in next week, but if you know the whereabouts of someone, can think of someone not on the list or any other information, please add to the comment section.

Thanks for the post. I started with people who were here while I was. I have those two and people like Anna Werner, Dana Kozlov and others and will eventually do a list of people before my time. If anyone knows of others, keep them coming.
