| 1 Comment

Phyllis Schwartz, who worked for many years in television news in Chicago at NBC-owned WMAQ-Channel 5, ABC-owned WLS-Channel 7 and CBS-owned WBBM-Channel 2, has just been named CEO of The Jumpitz, a children's entertainment group. The Jumpitz, founded in 2007, was created to provide both children and their parents with educational and entertaining interactive content across an array of platforms, including television, DVD, live concerts and mobile. "I am thrilled by the opportunity to provide high-end 'edutainment' offerings to children everywhere," said Schwartz. "In the last year we've developed a strong production team, and Phyllis was a natural fit to complete our roster," said Laurie Jabbar, chief creative officer with the Jumpitz.
