Frank Mungeam teaches on how not to be boring

Frank Mungeam, Director of Digital Media at KGW.
In December KGW Media Group launched a quarterly digital event for businesses to enable them to get a better understanding of social media and digital marketing.

KGW Digital Director Frank Mungeam leads the workshops. He honed his teaching technique in various roles including as professor of Creative Media & Digital Culture Program at Washington State University (WSU), a role he's had since 2011.

He’s a former television producer with a degree in psychology from Harvard University, a Masters in Communication and Leadership Studies from Gonzaga University who somehow morphed his career into the digital landscape.

Today, he is the resident digital guru at KGW NewsChannel 8 where he’s built a confident content development team and a highly successful social media strategy.

I met Mungeam when he first started teaching at WSU back in 2011 at one of his presentations for businesses. I came in with a chip on my shoulder because, of course, I think I know everything.

I was quietly wowed and became a Frank Mungeam fan on the spot. I wrangled a copy of his presentation – something he doesn’t do anymore, because, if you want the highly prized Mungeam insight on the lay of land in digital, you come and get it first hand and you take your own notes. Everything else is considered proprietary.

Today, I’m lucky enough to work for the same company as Mungeam. That detail, of course, makes me biased, yet smart enough to be in a place where I can keep honing my skills and continue to grow my knowledge of digital marketing. I'm not the only person that smart, even social media gurus like Jimmy Fallon drop in on Mungeam's presentations.

What about you? How do you cash in on the learning bonanza?

Send me an email.
