Kevin Boie is shifting to a city with no NFL football team. On the other hand, he’s doubling his immediate NBA cheering options and will soon be able to see first-hand what a properly motivated Lamar Odom can accomplish on the hardwood.
Boie is the new director of digital content for ABC7 in Glendale. He starts in January after five-plus years as a senior Web producer with FOX 4 KDFW and another five before that as the managing editor of the news website nbcdfw.com (previously nbc5i.com).
Boie is coming to a station that has as many Twitter followers as its three main competitors combined. And by the looks of the ABC7 jobs page, he is to be joined in 2013 by a host of other new arrivals.
