2008: What a Crappy Year(mostly)
Well, it has come to this. The last day of 2008. All I can say is -- good riddance.
This has been such a terrible year for television. I've had good friends lose their jobs due to layoffs. I've seen dozens of people shown the door. Luckily, a few were able to find new jobs -- but others still search daily and hope for a miracle.
My luck changed this year, for the good. I was very happy to get the Creative Services Director job at KTVX in Salt Lake City. A few weeks in and I really love it. The city is great and the people couldn't be nicer.
I was one of the lucky ones.
So for 2009, lets all hope for an unexpected uptick in the economy(2009 is projected to be worse that 08) - and lets hope all of the good people who were laid off find new work, new passions and a renewed spirit.
Remember, change is good. I wish you all the very best.
Thank you all for checking out the blog in 2008. I look forward to seeing you all in the new year.
