Profit From Your Passion in 2014

Profit-From-Your-Passion-tv-150We at Mediabistro have always been huge advocates of doing what you love — whether it’s breaking free of your ho-hum job in corporate law to work for magazines, like Brides‘ editor-in-chief Keija Minor did, or turning a passion for the written word into a lucrative novel- and TV-writing career (before the age of 25, no less, in Kara Taylor‘s case). And we aim to inspire — which is why we’re bringing back our Profit From Your Passion series. Each week in January, we’ll offer tips on how to pitch such prestigious pubs as the The Saturday Evening Post, give you a step-by-step strategy on how to perfect your book proposal, and share the secrets to success from media pros like Lucky founding editor Kim France, HollywoodLife’s Bonnie Fuller, and Dave Ramsey, finance guru, TV personality and author. Whether you desire a job in magazines, digital media, book publishing or TV/entertainment, now’s the time to pursue your dream. To whet your appetite, our first feature is How to Become a Six-Figure Freelancer. Yes, it is possible. See the full “Profit From Your Passion” lineup after the jump.

KFWB Placed in a Trust, Names New GM

Valerie Blackburn was named the new general manager of KFWB 980 AM following the transfer Monday from CBS Radio to the KFWB Asset Trust and the KFWB License Trust.

Bill Clark and Clark Radio, LLC is the trustee and Shooting Star Broadcasting CEO Diane Sutter will oversee the license on behalf of the trust.

This move comes nine years after CBS purchased KCAL-9 and needed to move the radio station out of the cluster.

“This is an incredible opportunity as KFWB continues to show growth,” Blackburn said in a release. “With the great talent of our news teams, Dave Ramsey, Les Brown and Bob McCormick, and assets like Clippers basketball and our lifestyle programming, I’m confident we will continue to build upon the momentum shown in the latest ratings released today.”
