Media veteran specializes in imaginative, cost-effective video content creation

KNOXVILLE, TN – (August 25, 2015) Old School Creative, a Knoxville-based marketing communications firm, recently welcomed video content creation specialist David Metz to its staff. Metz will serve as executive producer and principal in charge of business development.

With a broad range of experience that includes creative and operational leadership roles at television stations and major cable networks across the country, Metz is adept at efficiently creating entertaining and effective video content for both broadcast and the web. Most recently, he was senior vice president of production operations for Scripps Networks in Knoxville.

Prior to his 11 years at Scripps Networks, Metz led programming and Internet operations for KGO-TV, the ABC-owned television station in San Francisco. From 1990–1995, he was vice president and general manager of WLYH-TV, a CBS affiliate in the Harrisburg-Lancaster (PA) television market; and from 1985–1990, he was responsible for programming and creative services at WTAJ-TV, a CBS affiliate in the Altoona-Johnston (PA) market.

“I’m very enthusiastic about joining Old School Creative,” Metz said. “This opportunity allows me to take my three decades of creative video production experience and put it to use benefiting businesses here in the greater Knoxville area, East Tennessee and beyond. With the explosion of distribution channels and the reduction in the cost of tools, there’s no reason a business today can’t have compelling video in its marketing arsenal.”

Metz earned his bachelor’s degree in communication arts from Marist College in Poughkeepsie, NY. He resides in Farragut with his wife and two sons. An avid road cyclist and member of All Saints Catholic Church, Metz has been scoutmaster of Boy Scout Troop 444 in Farragut  since January 2014. He can be reached at (865) 368-2506 or by email at
