    I was just thinking the same thing. Sounds like a good gig.
  4. I worked for FSN South in the digital department 2011-12. The money wasn't great at the time, but as a DCA I worked with a great DCM in Mack Browning who taught me a lot. I also was able to do a lot of fun things outside of the normal job description. I was able to shoot/edit video, host a podcast that ended up getting some run on TV. We also had a good relationship with TV side that lead to opportunities. I am not sure what the pay is like now but if Wisc is anything like it was in Atlanta I would recommend the opportunity.
  5. Anyone know what is up with this one? I don't think the link to the job posting has ever worked.
