Helpful, fun, talented – all ways to describe the head of ABC’s Philadelphia creative operation, WPVI’s own MIKE MONSELL. His official title is VP of Creative Services. His new unofficial title is Writer for WellDunne! Yeah, it no doubt makes his week. Mike was kind enough to share info on a new hire at his shop, so I turn over the words to Mr. Mike:
SEDDIE STONE joined the 6abc Creative Services Department on May 8th. He is a 2006 graduate of the Art Institute of Philadelphia, majoring in Media Arts and Animation. Since graduation, Seddie has enjoyed freelance stints at Traffic.com, Comcast Sportsnet, and the Franklin Institute. A native of Long Island, Seddie now calls Philadelphia home, and is looking forward to a long and successful career with us at 6abc.
In sunny CA, BRET MARCUS has a shiny new business card with a long and exciting title. He’s been named VP of Programming, Publicity and Promotion at KCET, the PBS station for market #2. They created the slot just for him, and it sounds like they took a cue from the for-profit stations, don’t ya think? Bret comes from a producer side background, having been the EP of the now cancelled California Connected for the station. Not only that, he’s from the News side of things, having been EP for Brian Williams at MSNBC and over at ABC, where he was on board for World News Now and Good Morning America Sunday. Perhaps he’ll be looking to add a PROMAX statue to his Emmys, Peabody and all that. Well Dunne! Bret. Hope you show up at PROMAX, which is coming up as fast as a speeding semi on the open road.
More LA news. This time from the Valley. Hallmark Channel to be precise. Just off Topanga. JOHN MCDONALD is bumped up to Director of Affiliate Marketing.
