MacKenzie Bates

Operations Producer

MacKenzie serves as our Operations Producer. He's the guy behind the scenes, keeping our team on the road and making sure clients have everything they need to make their businesses successful.


He began his journey to Connext Media by completing the "journalism trifecta" in television, print and radio across the southeast.


When he's not cheering on his favorite sports teams (The Atlanta Braves, Falcons, Hawks or Kentucky Wildcats), he spends time with his beautiful wife, Cary Beth and (soon to be) newborn baby girl in Cumming, Ga. He also could not forget his two rambunctious Golden Retrievers, Tom and Jerry.
