Jake goes to school with a brilliant young entrepreneur named Jeff Guilkey. Jeff runs "Coaster Warriors" the website, and I've been fortunate to work with him on some of the early marketing efforts for the HUGE launch of, "Theme Park Channel" in Spring of 2010. (Jake and I are also filming a pilot show for the website/future network in April at King's Island with the help of the talented Josh Rosentreter.) This is the press release that Jeff originated and I edited announcing the Theme Park Channel.
"Welcome to Theme Park Channel!
