From St. Louis to Cincinnati: Digital + broadcast + social media = my new job

Like the 2012 presidential candidates, I have my sights set on Ohio.

I am happy to announce that I will be joining Scripps at the company’s Cincinnati television station, WCPO –TV (ABC) in November. This position offers me the chance to combine my broadcast and digital news experience – not to mention social media, in which I’ve been known to dabble.

While Cincinnati is new to me, I am happy to say I have a few friends who live there. When I went for my interview, I was surprised to find a lovely scene: the Ohio River winding its way between Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky; lots of trees, apartments and houses perched on bluffs, a glistening downtown and the contrast with historic Covington. WCPO itself sits in the Mt. Adams neighborhood near to Eden Park with its spectacular vistas.

After working solo since February–and, while I was with Patch, in various coffee shops, libraries and public places–I am actually looking forward to being in a newsroom again. The opportunity to collaborate with digital and broadcast professionals to deliver news and information, engage with the community, and innovate is exciting!

I will miss St. Louis, and with family members here, I will be visiting often—at least for a time. Next year, my parents will join my brother, Randall “Randy” Edgell, MD, and his family in Houston, where he has joined the University of Texas as a physician and faculty member.

One thing I won’t be leaving behind in St. Louis: That question, asked upon meeting someone new: “So, where did you go to high school?” People in Cincinnati ask it, too.
