Some people at KJAM are moving up, and one person is moving on
Dec 29
Chuck: We all have a good contact at the head office now. As long as he doesn't forget about his old colleagues.
Dana: You won't forget about us, will you, Greg?
Greg: Are you kidding? How could I forget you and the great work you're all doing here?
Heather: Will you be able to get back to K JAM for a visit once in a while?
Greg: Sure. One of my new duties will be to monitor local advertising sales across the network. I'll be visiting each station, including this one, at least a couple of times a year.
Dana: Good! When you come, bring lunch money!
Patty: It will be great to see you.
Chuck: That's easy for you to say, Patty. You won't have to show Greg higher and higher advertising sales figures!
Heather: Will you have the chance to do any broadcasting in your new job, Greg? You always liked working in the studio~
Greg: Unfortunately, no. The company doesn't want its executives doing any of that.
Patty: Why not? That doesn't sound fair.
Greg: They say it detracts from our ability to focus on business. Maybe they're right.
Dana: Just become company president; then you can change the rule!
Chuck: Or, if you ever need to escape the rat race, there'll always be a place for you here.
Greg: Thank you, Chuck. And now, I'd better go and start packing.
