COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT MOMENTUM SUMMIT • Thursday, APRIL 26th • 8:30a – 5:00p
Carol Ellingson • Promotions Director, Z88.3/Orlando
Carol started her adventure at Z88.3 as an intern way back in the day before most people had texting plans. She left for a short break to attend Florida State University (Go Seminoles!), before returning to Z88.3 after college as their first, full-time Promotions Director. This year she celebrates 13 years as Promotions Director at the Z. She has also helped Z88.3 grow socially and now, along with promotions, heads up the social media and donor love departments for the Z family of stations.
While most people look at her job description and run screaming in the other direction, Carol sees a unique benefit to keeping everything together. She believes it actually makes her life easier, but don’t tell her boss that she admits that. 😉 Carol’s heart is in promotions and she has a passion for making sure other Promotions Directors feel like they aren’t on a lonely island by themselves. If you are a promotions or social peep reading this, you know exactly how hard this job is, and how easy it is to get overwhelmed and burnt out. Her goal is to share ways that involve less head banging at the end of the day and create more winning moments for you and your radio station.
