Hope you aren’t one of those folks who are buried in snow. Sure, 8 feet of snow would keep you inside, allowing you enough time to catch up with Well Dunne! and who’s doing what. But the kind of snow they have in upstate NY is, well, too much. Holy cow. Good luck, kids. I hear the white stuff hasn’t stopped yet. There’s more on the way.
Out in Vegas, where snow usually isn’t an issue, CHARLES MCCARYII is hard at writing and producing at KVBC, the NBC affil. Charles hails from Chicago but has been in LV for 12 years, during which time he climbed the ladder in the biz. From intern at a local radio station to editor at FOX and then on to KVBC. Now, Charles is getting his creative honed under CSD DALE WYMAN. Talk about a great mentor! The Sunbelt Communications station will no doubt be seeing some exciting work. Good to hear!
Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios has a new VP of worldwide television marketing. Named to this powerful slot is FAYE WALKER, who had been at The Tennis Channel as head of marketing. Ms. Faye bounced to the tennis slot from being VP of marketing and promotions at GSN, which used to be the Game Show Channel. Well, it actually still IS the Game Show Channel, but they don’t call it that any more. Hey, you know what I mean. Move along.
DC’s STEVE HOUK is a man of many talents. Besides all the marketing creative gems he’s known for at W*USA, he’s also a musician. Yep, the lead singer of a band is called Second Wind. If you’re in the downtown Fairfax Virginia area on Wednesday, Feb 21, stop by the Firehouse Grill after 9 pm and take a listen. Don’t know where the Firehouse Grill is? Easy – it’s across from the old library building on University. And Steve will be the one holding the mic, looking adorable.
