The Big Announcement
Yes, it has finally happened, I have gained employment. On November 8, I moved to Chattanooga, Tennessee, and on November 14, I began working for Luken Communications, parent company of networks RTV, Tuff TV, My Family TV, PBJ, Frost Great Outdoors (FGO), My Car TV, The Nashville Network (TNN), and more networks to come. I am working in a dual role at the company, in both affiliate relations and engineering. One of my main tasks will be dealing with the chain of LPTV stations recently purchased from Trinity via the MMTC, but it will be one task among many. So far, I am enjoying my work and have high hopes that it will continue to be enjoyable for the forseeable future.
So what does this mean for RabbitEars? It should mean nothing, except that my daytime availability may be limited in terms of answering e-mails. Part of the reason the people at Luken wanted to have me on board was to ensure that I was not discouraged from maintaining RabbitEars by some other potential employer. In addition, my position will require some amount of travel, which will allow me to collect additional data on stations for RabbitEars, potentially improving the site in that manner.
To address the questions that I know are coming, here's the DX Tool page for my new apartment, TVFool for my new apartment, FMFool for my new apartment, and an AVS Forum thread about the issues I'm having. I will post an FM bandscan for my new apartment at some point in the future, though likely not here. No, I cannot tell you what additional networks Luken has in the pipeline. No, I cannot provide a photographic tour of Luken Communications at this time, as I did with the WDBJ studios and transmitter; however, in the future I will see if there would be any way to make such a thing happen.
Should you have any additional questions, feel free to e-mail me or leave a comment. Have a pleasant week!
