Tale of Wogan

WATE sports director Jim Wogan will take a new job as director of communications for the Diocese of Knoxville on July 1. The Diocese emailed me the official press release today. I was unsure what the news meant for Bill Brewer, the director of the media office for the Diocese, so I asked assistant editor Dan McWilliams. I was pleased to get a reply that Wogan’s job is different from Brewer’s.

Jim is well-suited for his new job. He used to co-host a Catholic podcast with Fr. Christian Mathis. When I saw Jim at an American Cancer Society luncheon two weeks ago, I had no idea he was already considering a move from TV to the chancery. I joked that I edged him out for the gig as emcee of the Eucharistic Congress last September. Bill Brewer booked me for the gig. There’s no way Wogan could have gotten a Saturday off during football season.

During the snow storm last week, Jim did a funny report from the WATE parking lot. Here he is with another of my favorite local Catholics, Kristin Farley.

    Looks like that was something he had to “get out of his system”. It’s fun when News People/Reprters can play around and make fun of each other like this. Good luck to Jim in his new job.
