MAINE SPORTSCASTER HEADS FOR PARTS UNKNOWN

Jon Alba, soon-to-be former sportscaster for Bangor, ME duopoly WVII-WFVX is leaving for a job in a bigger market.

He just can’t tell you where.

But the new job starts in mid-September and he is super-grateful.
“I’m super grateful for the chance to cover sports in an area that cares so much about local sports. I’m very thankful for being given a lot of creative freedom for presenting sports in a unique way. Not many stations would have given someone that kind of creative freedom at age 22,” Alba said. ”That allowed me to step up to the plate and take my game to the next level.”

Alba, now 25, was one of the youngest sports directors at a TV station when he came to the Rockfleet Broadcasting stations at age 22.
