He managed promotions and marketing at WEVV for 10 years before becoming Station manager in 2009, then General manager in 2010…a position he has held since. Tim arrived at WEVV when it was the original FOX affiliate in the market and has, in one capacity or another, managed the station through a market-wide affiliation switch in 1995 and then a return of the FOX affiliation…joining CBS…in 2011. Tim has always been a strong advocate of community and local not-for-profit efforts, leading the effort at CBS44 and FOX44 to provide production and creative resources, as well as airtime and staff, to support local events, fundraisers and charitable causes.
Tim has been an active member, including a stint as a board member, of the Evansville Ad Club since the 1990s. He chaired and/or co-chaired the Addy Awards committee two times and has emceed the annual Addy Awards on several occasions.
Over his 21 years in Evansville, Tim has served on numerous civic boards. In most cases those tenures saw Tim chairing or being a member of those organizations’ advertising/marketing/public relations committees. Tim currently sits on the marketing/advertising committees at the Southwestern Indiana Chamber of Commerce and the Evansville Association for the Blind. He is a current board member for the Evansville Museum Contemporaries and the mayor’s appointee to the Evansville Museum Board of Trustees. Tim has also served as a member of the board of directors for the local chapter of Big Brothers/Big Sisters and for Lampion Center…while at Lampion, helping to create and implement the first-ever Chocolate Affair fundraiser. In recent years, Youth First’s Passport to Adventure annual fundraiser, Southwest Indiana Red Cross Heroes Banquet and the Reitz Home Museum have been the beneficiaries of production and marketing assistance from WEVV because of Tim’s efforts.
Political campaign marketing and advertising have also been part of Tim’s resume’. He headed up marketing and advertising efforts for a long-time friend in his home town of Murray, Kentucky in the early 2000s…helping her to election and re-election to the office of District Judge. More recently, Tim has been asked by the Evansville mayor’s office to offer assistance to some local public service announcement efforts including Bank On Evansville.
Tim is an avid social media user, participating in activities of the Evansville Social Media Club and always looking for new ways to use and incorporate social media into the television and advertising/marketing industries.
