February 9th – Member Meeting Features Veteran Newsman, Rick Dancer
February’s MOPAN member meeting will feature Rick Dancer of Rick Dancer Media Services. After a 20+ career in television news, including anchoring the local ABC affiliate, KEZI, Dancer quit the business to run for political office. After a run for Oregon’s Secretary of State in 2008, Dancer decided to use his skills and experiences in a unique way and created Rick Dancer Media Services. He works on a variety of projects and will share some of them with us during our meeting.
He recently created RDTV, a magazine-style TV show that tells stories “you won’t see on the news.” It airs twice a month on KEVU TV (CH 23). The next shows are Sunday, February 5th and 19th.
This month’s meeting will be once again be at the Travel Lane County Adventure Center in Springfield, OR on Thursday, Feb. As usual, our “social schmooze” begins at 6:30 PM, followed by business and our featured speaker.
Dancer is a native Oregonian, was educated in Oregon, and raised his children here.
