While your news is full of wintertime, let me tell you how one smart young man is handling his career. STU SMITH has taken leave of his 2-year gig at ABC affil WUOW in Wausau, WI (temp at press time is 4 below) for a gig in palm tree laden Florida. Way to go Stu! He’s crafting creative topicals for KTSP, Gannett’s ABC affil in St. Pete, which is the Tampa St. Pete market, which is now market size #12. Wausau, just in case you want to do a little math this morning, is market #134. Stu must be good! According to his new boss, Director of Marketing PETER NIKIEL, he is. Good luck, Stu, on this new gig, which I like to call Tropical Topicals. Ha!
BBC Worldwide, the LA chapter, has named JOHN HESLING to their VP of Creative Services job. John has an exciting background with BBC, the NYC chapter, where he was in the Entertainment division and produced documentaries as well as producing series for the net. Which series? Glad you asked. He brought to screen “One Week To Save Your Marriage” and “Honey We’re Killing The Kids”.
KELLI GROSS got a promotion at Maloof Productions, the folks behind Spike TV’s “Bullrun”. Kelli’s brand new biz cards read Production Executive and her task will be to handle the marketing and publicity of the production house, which focuses on TV and feature films. Maloof is working with George Clooney (go ahead, sigh, now continue reading) and HBO on an upcoming series as well. Oh, and there’s a casino in all this mix. Interesting, eh?
Now don’t forget to check the great promos on the 602 Communications site. They’re amazing. And they spark creativity. And don’t forget to let me know of changes. It’s as easy as an email to me: firstname.lastname@example.org
Hold this in mind: “The first fall of snow is not only an event, it is a magical event. You go to bed in one kind of a world and wake up in another quite different, and if this is not enchantment then where is it to be found?” ~ J. B. Priestley
