Jon – 1 month – TV station where I was News Director – Ch 6 – shut down. But mortgage and groceries still have to be paid! – Alex – Just joined 3 weeks ago – I worked with Jon Brady at XETV CW channel 6 on the newscasts until the station closed down recently. Jon linked up with an old coworker who was putting out marketing type videos for the optic industry (eye care, glasses/sunglasses). Reached out to me because I was a video editor and the place we worked previously.
