Sam Tilery

Diana

We are so sorry to hear that Sam Tilery, a marketing visionary and passionate radio professional at WPLR & WYBC has passed away. For over 30 years, Sam was a major part of the Connoisseur radio stations in Connecticut.

In Radio Ink Magazine, Market Manager Kristin Okesson of WPLR & WYBC spoke highly of her friend and colleague:

“We have been fortunate enough to know and work with Sam for many years. He was a dear friend, wonderful person, and devoted family man, and he will be sorely missed. Sam leaves us as a legend on the streets of New Haven, where his mission was to give back to the community that he served.  Sam understood the importance of taking these big brands and using them to do great work, not only for the company, but for the community at large.  His spirit will forever be part of the foundation of WPLR and WYBC, everyone in our building, and for those fortunate enough to work with him. No words can adequately express our sadness at Sam’s passing or our gratitude for all of the work he did for people over the course of his career. We can honor his memory by dedicating ourselves to continuing the work he was so passionate about.”

Join The Guard

 image2

Connecticut’s Governor’s Horse Guard  (“The Nation’s Oldest Continuously Mounted Cavalry Unit”) held its swearing-in ceremony last week and a CT news anchor was among the new recruits.

The Unit is down in numbers and has been crushed by budget cuts.  Members are hoping to get the word out about the troop and have asked NBC CT morning co-anchor Kerri-Lee Mayland to help. She and several others  have begun the 16-week, intense training. If you’re interested in learning more and perhaps joining them, go to ctfirsthorse.org.

CTNewsJunkie Gets A Voice

WTIC1080

headshot2_163_108_86_sha-40

We’re all used to waking up to the reporting of  CT News Junkie in our inboxes, but this past week we got a taste of it on the radio.

We’ve enjoyed listening to Christine Stuart, editor of CT News Junkie as she filled in for Jim Vicevich, host of “Sound Off Connecticut” on WTIC 1080. Jim took a few days off so Christine stepped up to the mic to discuss some of news stories of the week with a variety of call-in guests.

Betting On a New Reporter

The CT Mirror and the Fairfield County Community Foundation are jointly attempting to raise money, and the goal is the hiring of  a Fairfield County reporter for The Mirror. Make a donation to The Mirror on October 16th and you could win a tablet. It’s an unusual tactic, but the economics of traditional journalism aren’t exactly thriving…..

The Fairfield County Community Foundation poses a challenge – raise funding through individual donations and the FCCF will match to bring a reporter to Fairfield County as the Mirror looks to extend its reach throughout the state. On Wednesday, October 16, there is an incentive. If you donate at any one of our five levels here, you are entered to win a tablet. It’s a winning proposition – your tax-deductible donation supports quality nonprofit journalism at its finest; you receive a gift; and you are entered to win a tablet. And Fairfield County gets a reporter in 2014, which is the biggest win of all.
