Pittsburgh has news. WTAE to be specific. The Hearst-Argyle ABC affil has promoted HEATH MYRICK to the #2 slot at the station. He’ll be Assistant Promotion Manager for CSD SHERRY CARPENTER, who called with the info. Heath’s been in PA for nearly three years, having come from WBKO in Bowling Green, KY which is the ABC affil there owned by Benedek. Did I tell you he was Promo Manager there? The Pinehurst, NC native is thrilled. And he confessed that, despite the worldwide reputation that Pinehurst holds as a golf mecca, he isn’t one to hit the links. Good…golfers can be very pedantic. Congrats, Heath!
Here’s a little bonmot about PA…it’s the state where Smiley was born. You know Smiley, who looks like this 🙂 Some computer guy, namely Scott Fahlman, at Carnegie Mellon came up with it in the 80’s. And now it’s everywhere. Sigh.
A&E promoted DAN SILBERMAN to VP of Publicity. Yes, he’s going to report to BOB DEBITETTO, EVP and GM of A&E, which means Dan becomes a direct report – the best kind of thing to be. What’s he going to do at the cable net? All the usual, of course.
It’s the unusual that I’m looking for. And the good stuff going on. Let me know if you have a new job, client, spouse, child, pet or travel itinerary. firstname.lastname@example.org will work.
