STEVE YASKO SURFACES AS EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR OF BALTIMORE ARTS ORGANIZATION
Steve Yasko, former GM of WTMD, Baltimore has been hired as the new executive director of the nonprofit organization Bromo Arts & Entertainment District.
Bromo is a 117-acre area in downtown Baltimore that is built around the historic Bromoseltzer Tower. The District has seen considerable growth in the past few years. Yasko told local media:
"I can’t wait to get started on building relationships and projects that make the Bromo District a locally and nationally recognized neighborhood where all of the arts create experiences that can’t be duplicated anywhere else but right here in Baltimore.”
Yasko knows the Bromo District very well. When he was in charge of WTMD, the station publicized the District’s music, cultural and arts scenes. Yasko appears to be a solid choice for the gig. We praised Yasko for his work at WTMD in August 2015 [link].
The best advice often given to new bloggers and reporters is: Write about what you know. Over the past couple of years I have really, really gotten to know the challenges caused by declining eyesight. Now I am publishing a blog based on my experiences with low vision. The blog is WELCOME TO LOW VISION [link].
I describe “low vision” as the zone between blindness and normal sight. There are over five million people in America with low vision. My goals are to help mainstream living with vision, increase awareness of the condition, influence policy decisions and provide news about the vision loss marketplace. As I have tried to do with SPARK! I intend to provide information with a sense of humor.
