FRIDAY, JULY 29th, CLEAR CHANNEL Alternative WWDC (DC101)/WASHINGTON, D.C.Imaging Director/longtime ELLIOT IN THE MORNING sidekick FLOUNDER (a.k.a. BRYAN SCHLOSSBERG) exited after nearly 12 years at the station (NET NEWS 8/1).
FLOUNDER stated via FACEBOOK, "FRIDAY was my last day working at DC101. Over the last 12 years, I have met some amazing people and have done amazing things. Thanks to my friends and family for their amazing support."
With his sights on the future, FLOUNDER has already begun searching for his next opportunity. This morning he teamed up with former DC101 employee, KYLE BENHAM to launch a "Hire FLOUNDER" campaign. BENHAM launched BOOTCAMP LIGHTS earlier this year, reaching 80,000 U2 fans at M&T BANK STADIUM with a custom built R22 Helicopter, outfitted with a 36-foot digital billboard.
Authorized by the FEDERAL AVIATION ADMINISTRATION to fly digital advertising over metropolitan areas, the BOOTCAMP LIGHTS Helicopter, operated by co-founder, ROBERT SCHAPIRO, displayed "Hire FLOUNDER -- DJFLOUNDER.COM" this morning above rush hour traffic on I-270 and I-370 just outside of WASHINGTON, D.C.
BENHAM stated, "It isn’t easy finding work in this economy. FLOUNDER is a creative genius with the discipline needed to succeed; I hope this campaign will help him discover a fulfilling career."
One commuter tweeted, "@DJFLOUNDER, even though you slowed down traffic this morning on 270, I thought that was some great advertising." In response, FLOUNDER commented, "Get used to it because I am not going away."
