From the Funking Conservatory

The "Dean" of professional wrestling journalists has accepted the position of  General Manager of The Funking Conservatory's !BANG! TV and Brighthouse Network Orlando's Throw Down. On Tuesday, from his web site, All About Wrestling, Mr. Apter made this announcement.

  It's official, I am the new General Manager of the company Dory Funk Jr. runs in Ocala, Florida. Two excellent TV programs are produced by the company that features mainly trainees from his training school, the Funkin' Conservatory.
   After doing several hours of commentary in Ocala on Sunday night, and refereeing a match for the second time in my life, I decided to get with this organization and help get things that were going in the right direction before, headed in that very same direction with my 35 years of experience to guide the way.  For those of you who think I will leave my Pennsylvania home, or office I maintain in New York, that won't happen.  I will do most of my work from Pennsylvania and appear at meetings and shows in Ocala on a regular basis.
    I send a hearty thank you to the Funks -- Dory and his wife Marti -- for giving me this opportunity.

!BANG! airs on Fox 51 Ocala three times a week, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday nights at 2:00am. Throwdown features the stars of !BANG! and airs twice a week in the Orlando area on channel 10 Wednesdays at 7:00pm and Sundays at 12:30pm.
