Christine Anewalt started at KPNX-TV as an account executive just over a year ago and has made an immediate impact. She closed a $16,000 new business sale in her first week and was off and running from there. Among her biggest accomplishment thus far has been turning a small sale with the United Food Bank into a station-wide promotion called “Summer of a Million Meals” which raised over $125,000 for UFB in 2018. That’s the definition of protecting business while also modeling the way as a community partner!
This year, the UFB program with the station is going to be bigger than ever. The goal is to raise even more money and make sure nobody goes hungry in Phoenix. Also, as a direct result of this campaign, the UFB received a grant from the Piper Foundation to rebuild their warehouse with A/C to better provide meals to over 200 agencies in the Valley.
It’s so abundantly clear why Christine is a model newcomer into Arizona broadcasting, especially at a time when innovation in media sales is so critical, and we look forward to recognizing her contributions this fall as a Newcomer of the Year for 2019!
