Eduardo's Corner

I hope everyone is enjoying their summer.  The past couple of months have been extremely busy for our group with many different projects and initiatives.  We kicked-off this year's Feria season in June with a fantastic event in Ft. Myers, we opened-up up a National Sales Office in Miami, provided in-depth coverage of El Mundial from South Africa with their special correspondent Víctor Rodríguez, we expanded our signature events with the first annual Fiesta Mexicana in Tampa, VIVA 900AM was the Fútbol de Primera affiliate in Washington for the World Cup, and we hosted the official launch party for WZTD Richmond.   And these are only a few of our recent accomplishments.
Looking forward we are excited to announce the launch of KTDO El Paso's newscastTelenoticias at both 5 and 10 pm this fall.  We are also in the process of completing the HD upgrade for the news in both Washington and El Paso.  We continue to enhance our offerings, provide our audiences with relevant local content, and engage our communities with special events and partnerships.  I'd like to thank everyone for their commitment and dedication.
This has also been a difficult time for the ZGS family.  We were deeply saddened by the sudden and tragic loss of Alex Sroka, our colleague from WWSI Philadelphia.  We continue to keep Alex's parents, siblings, girlfriend Diana, friends and colleagues in our thoughts, and keep the memory of him close.

In May, Alex Sroka, our dear friend and colleague from WWSI Philadelphia passed away.  We will always remember Alex for his amazing spirit and incredible passion for life. His enthusiasm and energy was infectious.  He had a tremendous presence with his team and clients where he was known for his creativity and dedication.  Alex was a remarkable individual who was taken away much too soon.  He will be deeply missed and we are very fortunate to have known him.
