The Larchmont Buzz is pleased to announce a new bee in their swarm: Kim Rudy is the new Director of Advertising for the daily online newspaper that serves the greater Wilshire, Hancock Park and Larchmont areas of central Los Angeles.
“I love the Buzz. It’s a great community forum, and a wonderful avenue for local businesses to reach neighborhood residents,” Kim says.
Kim was born and raised on Gramercy Place so knows the neighborhood well. She has worked for Park LaBrea’s Corporate Housing office for the past ten years and has been involved in the Wilshire Rotary and the Miracle Mile Chamber of Commerce.
She no doubt has a bit of sales in her blood – many of you will connect her family name with someone you may know over at the Larchmont Chronicle. The Chronicle and the Buzz have recently combined forces to offer both print and online advertising solutions for businesses and organizations in the area.
Kim is married to Patrick Rodriguez who she met at Santa Clara University where they both studied. She has two boys, Cole, 4 and Grant, 8, who attend Wilshire Preschool and St Brendan School. The family lives in the Miracle Mile area.
Kim intends to ramp-up the Buzz reach to businesses, providing multi-faceted creative solutions for companies and organizations that will include display ads, Sponsored Posts, offering coupons and discounts, and doing profiles on business owners in the area.
“We can get your hive humming with the Larchmont Buzz,” she said, with a big smile.
