The Story Behind Our New Staff Photos

A few weeks back, Shelley got an idea. Shelley routinely gets ideas, but this one was especially good. We needed new staff pictures on our website, and she thought we should do them in the style of our favorite Saturday Night Live bumpers.

Even if you don’t know what an SNL bumper is, I guarantee you’ve seen one somewhere along the way. They’re the shots of celebrities (usually in a silly pose against a plain backdrop) SNL uses going into and out of commercial breaks.

After some quick research, the team found our favorite bumper and set out to recreate it.

Ryan (who went further into character than anyone could have asked for) picked Justin Bieber.

And Rene…well, we’re not sure who Rene picked.

Anyway, we’re really happy with the new Leadhub photos. Hope you like them – and now you know the backstory!

About 

Dale’s work with the News 4 WOAI team earned him two Emmys. Seriously. It’s perhaps a less well-known fact that, after tiring of the glitz and glamour of showbiz, he fled to the Leadhub campus in northwest San Antonio where he cultivated his love for Duke basketball and the musical stylings of Celine Dion. Dale received his Masters from Texas State University in 2011, where he is a professor of digital journalism.
