Down in H-town, aka Houston, as in Texas, my old Art Director and favorite guy DOUGLAS KARABASZ has a new hire to announce. Slipping into the role of Graphic Designer is CHRIS KENNEDY. Yep, he’s a Texan from Corpus Christi. If you haven’t traveled to Corpus, you are indeed missing a beach paradise. Oh, wait…not too many of you now. It would ruin the “out of the way, sandy “ feeling that Corpus is noted for. Sorry I mentioned this travel destination. Back to Chris. He’s come 14 miles to KPRC, the NBC affil owned by Post Newsweek, from Belo’s CBS affil KHOU where he was an Electronic Graphic Operator. He’s been in Houston about 8 years plus, and before that he worked at KBMT in Beaumont. You’d be amazed at how many people know people from Beaumont. It’s kinda like the Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon of cities. We might want to start a new game. Congrats on the new gig, Chris. You’ll love working for DK.
Know about BermanBraun? You will! It’s the newest venture between Gail Berman and Lloyd Braun. Of course you know them. Gail left her President of Paramount Pix job and Lloyd left his Yahoo job..lots of ink and pixels about those exits. Well, they’re teaming up to produce TV Programs, movies and Internet entertainment. They’ve got their eyes on producing plays and video games on down the line, too. The list of shows these two have helped along is amazing: The Sopranos, American Idol, 24, Lost, Malcom in the Middle…it goes on and on. They’re looking for a studio in which to set up their offices, but don’t look for them at ABC or Paramount. More as this develops. How exciting…!!
