On the fast track is….drum roll please….BRYAN JOHNSON, who has news this last part of 06. Bryan is an Art guy by talent, and yet he writes so very well. Just because it’s already Thursday and because I’m trying to do a bit of holiday relaxation, I’m going to turn the whole caboodle over to Mr. Bryan and let him spill his own great news.
“I’m at KGUN-TV in Tucson, Arizona. I started here as Art Director almost three years ago, gladly accepting additional Promotions Manager responsibilities under CSD STEVE HARRIS last year. Before that, I worked in San Francisco at KRON under CSD JEFFREY WEINSTOCK, and in Portland at KOIN under CSD LARRY MCDANIEL. After falling in love with the world of Marketing and Promotions, I knew that’s where I wanted to grow. Last week, I accepted the Creative Services Director position at brand new, KOHD-TV in Bend, Oregon. The move is not only a promotion, but a homecoming, getting my wife and two beautiful kids closer to our family in Portland. It is also a tremendous opportunity to brand and position the start-up ABC station using the latest in HD equipment. KOHD will be one of only 11 fully High-Def stations in the U.S.”
Bryan’s new boss is GM JERRY UPHAM, who was once at Portland’s KATU. Bryan begins in February. ALL the very best to him!
