Lonteen To Sell Peoria

A story in the Journal Star today covers how WMBD news director Brent Lonteen has been offered the job of Peoria Area Convention and Visitors Bureau director.

Having worked and lived with Brent, I can tell you that you'd be hard pressed to find someone who loves this area more.

If he accepts it, this will be a great challenge and one I think he'll do well with, although to be fair it is unchartered territory and there will be a tough learning curve coming from television.

Update: heard through the grapevine that the move was announced to 31 staffers.
