Who is 252Buzz?
Husband-and-wife team Bill and Jane Hudson are owners, operators and the ONLY employees of 252Buzz.
Bill, who grew up in South Carolina and Tennessee, earned an advertising degree from University of Tennessee, Knoxville. He has lived in Greenville for 20 years and previously worked in marketing and advertising in Greenville at The Daily Reflector and WNCT-TV. He began photography as a hobby and, after taking additional online courses in digital photography and photo editing, he now is the photographer for 252Buzz. You may spot him at sporting events and activities around town wearing his signature bandana. He answers to "Buzz" now!
Jane earned a journalism degree from The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. She began working as an intern reporter at The Daily Reflector when she was attending Greenville's J.H. Rose High School and continued working for local publications for seven years after college. Following a 10-year stint at the Greensboro News & Record, she returned to Greenville in 2000 and again began working at the local newspaper. She conceived and wrote the popular "Hot Dish" restaurant column and was founding editor of both Her... magazine and Greenville: Life in the East. She usually is behind the scenes at her laptop -- creating content and searching Facebook to find posts to share on the 252Buzz Facebook page.
This is Bill Hudson, AKA Buzz!
He's the only photographer who works for 252Buzz
You may see him around town, at sporting events and activities, wearing his bandana.
If he's carrying a camera or two, give him a holler and he'll take your photo.
Why did we create 252Buzz?
Bill and I began our careers in journalism, marketing and advertising because we believe in the power of words and images to connect and motivate people in a community.
We earned university degrees that trained us to work for newspapers, and we used our skills in the print industry for years.
We don't have to tell you that technology has changed the way people consume information and entertainment. You probably are reading this Facebook post on a phone or laptop. As the traditional news industry continues to struggle to adapt, Bill and I were impacted in many negative ways. We decided it was time to figure out how to use our skills in a new way.
We founded Bee There Media (the website address for Be There already was taken, so we added a second 'e') and came up with a variety of ways we could help local small businesses with their social media content and marketing.
And we created 252Buzz as a way to show potential clients how Bill and I could create content, graphics and photos that connect them with customers and potential customers through social media.
