TRACY ACCORD OLIVER is writing and producing for Hearst Argyle’s Pittsburgh operation, WTAE. It’s an ABC affil. When HEATH MYRICK was promoted to the #2 slot under CSD SHERRY CARPENTER, there was a creative void, which is happily filled by Tracy. More on her comin’ up. Had a very bizarre afternoon and didn’t get to chat with her.
Have you heard about the new “seamless spots” that ABC trotted out for media buyers? It’s like a “show within a show” format where commercials would run in TV sets, on cell phones, iPods, etc. as part of the entertainment. The Alphabet Web had an example, using JIM BELUSHI’s show in which Jim was watching TV and we, as the audience, saw the same commercial that Jim the character did. It’s a work in progress. Interesting.
Have you heard, part 2: NBC and Rupert Murdock teaming up with their laser scope aimed at YouTube.
