Ladies and gentlemen…let me introduce you to LAUREL PORTIE. She’s a Louisiana lady, hailing from Guyden, LA, which is located just south of I-10 outside and a bit south and west from Lafayette. Laurel has been working in North Carolina at Greenville’s WNCT, the Media General CBS afil. She’s jumping 110 markets to take the Brand Manager job in Dallas/Ft. Worth. She’ll be creating magic at KTXA, which is part of the KTVT duopoly in the Metroplex. It’s CBS. Now that she’s at home in Haltom City, she’s looking forward to exploring all the nooks and crannies that make up the market. First off, she’ll be looking for the subway in Ft. Worth. I hope it’s still there. Yes, there was a subway in downtown Ft. Worth that ran from a parking lot to the basement of a department store. I need to check to see what the status of that is. Hope it’s not been deemed too outdated. It was totally unique. Good luck on your new job, Laurel. You’ll love working with the team your boss DAVID HERSHEY has assembled.
Cookie Jar Entertainment in lovely LA has named CATHY PARKS to the slot of VP Retail and Promotions. Cookie Jar does kids programs and all kinds of fun stuff. It’s the home of Gerald Mac Boing Boing.. Is that a GREAT name or what? She’s already in place, I do believe.
