Richmond, Virginia’s CBS affil, Raycom owned WTVR, has a new producer for creative boss ANDY SCHWABE. It’s DANICA NEDDENIEN, who has worked her way from Production Dept to News Dept to (heave a sigh of relief) Promotion! Wahoo…she came over from the dark side. She’s hard at work for soon-to-be Dad Andy, who will welcome baby #2 to the fold in late October. New little Schwabe, now referred to as “buddy” will join sister ADDY around the dinner table. Congrats and all the best to you WTVR!
Pittsburgh Post-Gazette TV Editor Rob Owen had a harsh headline in Wednesday’s edition. “Promotional Flub – weather report rain on viewers Monday”. Seems that instead of seeing the exciting last few scenes of “24” on WPGH, FOX in the Steel City, there was a promo for the upcoming 10pm news. Ooops. Don’t you just HATE it when that happens. Not a promo mistake, of course, so the headline is inaccurate. Despite the tainted viewing experience in Pitt, the Chinese got away with the component that will no doubt be the basis for the third act of Jack Baur’s exciting show.
Former Promo Queen BETTY COHEN is out as head of Lifetime network. Looking for information about the departure, explained as “will pursue other interests” which as we all know is PR code for “pushed out”. I’ll share whatever I find out. Where’s Ms. C headed? Can’t find a city with “other pursuits” listed in the Yellow Pages.
Kryptonite. Who knew it was real?
Think about this: “Kindness is an inner desire that makes us want to do good things even if we do not get anything in return. It is the joy of our life to do them. When we do good things from this inner desire, there is kindness in everything we think, say, want and do.” ~ Emmanuel Swedenborg
