Sales Manager: Robin Banks. Rob has sold everything from shoes to sail boats. The thing he sells best is himself. Rob fast-talked his way into the sales manager job without spending one day inside a TV station. He’ll be sure to generate a lot of business and create a whack-load of chaos inside the station. He’ll be charming at times, bored and distant at other times and lash out when he doesn’t get his own way. Clients will love him and the staff will despise him.

Traffic Manager: Tara Cherry. Tara has five year of IT experience and meek, slightly beaten down personality that will serve her well when dealing with programming, sales and promotions people. We don’t know any personal details about her because we just don’t care.
