Which begs the question, "Who is selling the analog."

Another praise term for an account executive. Executive? Oh, yes. They are next in line to be a manager of something.

Why even bother with a public announcement? Who cares? And what about these form-letter PRs? The names are so replaceable:

“Darth Vader is a leader. His knowledge of broadcast and online advertising, and his ability to translate those opportunities to our team and our clients, makes him the perfect fit for this position,” said KHBS/KHOG-TV and The Arkansas CW President and General Manager, Jesus Christ. “Vader embodies our commitment to innovation and excellence and I have every faith this will translate into results for both the station and our clients,” added Christ.

“Darth has already proven himself as a leader on our sales staff”, said Shelley Levene (look it up,) KHBS/KHOG-TV and The Arkansas CW General Sales Manager. “His customer engagement is excellent, and I’m confident as our new DSM he will lead our digital sales effort to new heights.”

Stay classy, local broadcast TV industry!

"Customer Engagement." Now there's a catchy description of hitting the street.

"Account Executive." Fancy name for someone who calls you and tries to sell you airtime. Heck, just the title alone is worth taking a big pay cut. I hear that now they do most of their selling over the phone and don't make personal sales calls to the person's business.

I have already done that.

Pitiful to think the people in the business don't know fluff when they hear/read it.
