in local theater. Believe it or not, this first courier position actually helped him break into TV. It's likely why he was selected for his second job (the one he chose over playing a horse in Equus) as a courier for WBZ TV. "Those were the days when you had to phys- ically transport film. I traveled around with film and a stack of résumés in my car, dis- tributing reels to local TV stations and also my résumé every chance I got," remembers Kravetz of his less than lofty first job in the TV business. After six months as a courier for WBZ, Kravetz at last got his lucky break, albeit on an extremely unlucky day. ("Getting a job in TV news in the 1970s was the equiv- alent of landing a plum job at Google today.") "The day I was offered a full-time job in TV production was the day my mother was diagnosed with cancer and that I had attended a funeral of a close family friend," recalls Kravetz. Charlie Kravetz and his wife Deborah Sinay met when they both worked at WCVB. They have two grown and recently married daughters who were educated in the Wellesley public schools. The Sinay-Kravetz team has called Wellesley home since 1984. In fact, you're likely to spot Kravetz at one of his favorite Wellesley haunts, the Maugus restau- rant. That is when this lover of narrative jour- nalism and his wife are not home watching Transparent, Mozart in the Jungle, Homeland, or lamenting that Jon Stewart is no longer hosting The Daily Show. 67 s u m m e r 2 0 1 6 | W e l l e s l e y W e s t o n M a g a z i n e
