COW Leaders : Charlie KingCreative COW Forum Host
When Charlie King began posting in Creative Cow, it was clear to many of our members that here was a guy that loved communications and had a lot of experience in the television field," says the director of Creative Cow, Kathlyn Lindeboom."He quickly became a visible and honored part of many of the forums in which he participated and the users have really come to enjoy his participation and leadership. It's great that he volunteered to join the Cow Team -- though in reality he was really drafted by popular demand of the users and other leaders who kept on asking him to join the team. We had fun watching the way the repartee was played out -- all in good fun -- and then we wrote Charlie and asked him to join. It's great to have him here, Charlie lends a lot to the Cow and we are delighted that he calls the Cow his online home."
