Yup, still around for now. I have indeed left WCIA and am taking a few
weeks off before moving on to new challenges. I'm looking at possibilities both
in and out of broadcast news, both in and out of Illinois. This is as good a
place as any to thank the many of you who have called or e-mailed with your
support the last two weeks. I've had several career leads and even one offer of
temp work. It's flattering! As to my future with this organization, I notified
the board when I parted ways with WCIA. I intend to continue to serve as
vice-president until I make my next career move or the election in October.
Obviously, if I am not actively working as a broadcaster in October, I will not
run again. People are welcome to e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Take care,
all! -- Gee

Gee Leaves WCIA
Just heard through the grapevine today that former WMBD assignment editor Jim Gee left WCIA last month. Jim had been news director at channel 3 for the past couple of years. I copied his message from the INBA website for those of you interested in getting in touch with him.
