I knew that Georgia Public Broadcasting was a haven for dog lovers when I arrived for my first meeting with CEO and President, Teya Ryan. I was met in the lobby by Teya and Miley, her sweet Havanese, who walked calmly beside us as we toured GPB’s studios. Along the way we encountered Jessi, an extremely excited Labradoodle who was very happy to make my acquaintance and Cinnamon, a Chihuahua with an outsized personality who guarded her “Mom’s” office cube with great gusto. It was definitely a very memorable job interview.
The dogs of GPB are the inspiration behind our first digital series, Unleashed: A Dog’s Life. So many of us here have dogs or love dogs that we figured our viewers would be just as interested as we are in learning about how to care for them, train them, pamper them and maybe even come to understand them.
