TVMoJoe has only been in existence since late April, but it’s already time to begin another chapter in this blog’s history.
Yes, this is my final MoJoe post on TVWeek.com. I’m moving on to join TheWrap.com as TV editor after a little more than a year at TelevisionWeek.
Before I make my exit, some long overdue credit to a few folks who helped birth this here blog.
Former TVWeek design chief Chad Rooney patiently translated my ideas for the look of this blog, taking them from amateurish musings ("Can we have a line thingy here?") into reality. Thanks, Chad!
Also due a shout out: Maria Villar, the supertalented design whiz who created the MoJoe logo (really, it’s the best thing about this blog). She’s also amazing with letterpress, so you need to go to her website now and buy yourself some custom-made something. Do it. Now.
I don’t want this post to turn into an acceptance speech kind of thing, but quick hat tips to former TVWeek editor Greg Baumann, who allowed me the freedom to make this blog what i wanted it to be; current TVWeek executive editor (and NewsPro czar!) Tom Gilbert for just being an all-around awesome guy; and TVWeek managing director Chuck Ross, for finding a way to pay for it all.
If all goes as planned, look for TVMoJoe to resurface in a new form in August. You can keep your browsers set to TVMoJoe.com.
Finally, I selected the video below as the final MoJoeTV. It seems fitting:
