When I spun the roulette wheel, the winner was Las Vegas’ CBS affil KLAS. CSD LEE MINARD tells me he promoted one and found a local talent to take fill his two writer-producer creative slots. Being promoted is BOB WOOLEY. Bully, Wooley! Did somebody just say that? And coming to KLAS from NBC affil KVBC in LV is SHAYNE STOFKO, who’s taking the writer producer slot that Bob vacated with his promotion. Lee’s still on the lookout for an Art Director and a commercial writer/producer/editor/shooter who knows how to make that camera work! So, if you know that person, or are that person, get to know Mr. Lee. He’s one of the very best.
Climbing into the ring at World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) is JENNIFER MCINTOSH, who is now VP/Publicity. She’s been doing PR for mPRm Public Relations where she had a VP title and is a whiz at TV publicity. Another new WWE business card is on order for GEORGE CABICO who will have Publicity Director as his title. George comes to the Stamford, CT based WWE from B|W|R PR where he handled a lot of FOX show publicity. They both report to GEOF ROCHESTER, EVP Marketing. Well Dunne!
Trading the Brothers for the Mouse is FRANK KEATING, who’s taken the VP of Marketing slot at The Disney Channel, Playhouse Disney, Toon Disney and Jetix brands. Frank had been VP of Marketing at Warner Bros Worldwide Television. Luckily for Frank, he’s moving just down the block to his new office. Oy – the price of gas in LA! But wait…there’s more! RON POMERANTZ was given a promotion and he’s now in charge of all the on-air and branding for Disney Channel, having been Executive Creative Director. He’s now got a VP title himself. Ron has put in time at SoapNet, doing great work there. And making it a Disney hat trick, VERNOICA DAVIDSON is now a VP, in charge of On-Air Promotion Production. The three report to SVP Marketing and Creative RICHARD LOOMIS. Well Dunne kids!
