Happy Valentines Day everybody! A warm wish goes to all those who are stuck with blowing snow, ice or winter weather. Blizzards should be confined to the Dairy Queen, don’t ya think? Hang in there. That little groundhog says it’s just a few more weeks then spring will spring.
While they battle the ice in NYC, there’s also news from WCBS. Getting the Director title is JOANNA BRAHIM who handled communications and public relations at the flagship. She was Manager. Also VANESSA KENON HUNT has a promotion to talk about. She’s the new Public Affairs Manager. Speaking of public affairs…WCBS anchor lady DANA TYLER is dating musician PHIL COLLINS. Perhaps he can do some kind of really eye-catching PSA, eh? Get some great PR out of it?
I can’t find the info, but it seems I told you that LAURA MASSE has been upped to EVP from Sr. VP of Marketing at the Hallmark Channels, which Wall Street calls Crown Media Holdings. Well, I like the Hallmark monikers better. Laura gets to be bi-coastal, with offices in LA and NYC. She’s got a kicker resume, having worked in marketing at AMC and Discovery. She’s a PROMAX Brand Builder from 04, too. Are you sure I didn’t tell you about her already?
Knoxville-based Scripps Networks, the folks who bring us HGTV and DIY and Food and Fine Living…they promoted PATTY LUMPKIN to Sr. VP of Affiliate Marketing. Patty has been with Scripps for several years, having come over from VP of Marketing at Time Warner Cable in Greensboro, NC. Congrats Patty!
