So, the end of the KTSC (Knox Tourism and Sports Corporation) has come. It has been reported that Liza Zenni Executive Director of the Knoxville Arts & Cultural Alliance along with Caesar Stair the President of the KACA and others were instrumental in getting the Gloria Ray salary out there. So, they were the spark that lit the fire and the controversy of a lazy board of directors was the gasoline that consumed the issue.
WBIR was supposedly saying they broke the story on Gloria Ray's salary. Actually, Mike Donila over at the News Sentinel identified on his blog Screams From The Porch who first identified the salary. Check out his post, here. Yes, it was Shock And Awe. Anyhoo!
I was checking out the Knox Arts & Cultural Alliance website this afternoon, here and lo and behold, WBIR's News Director Bill Shory is on the board of directors. I wonder why and how some little ole' blog beat the straight from the heart folk. Did WBIR news reports reveal that their big bad News Director served on the board? Where, When and How are the Arts and Cultural Alliance Board meetings conducted and recorded?
