Had a great talk with Big Apple’s FOX station’s VP of Creative BRIAN BLUM. Please, no comments on how to diagram that sentence. Brian has a new hire and he’s thrilled to find such a great guy for market #1. JOSH MEZA will come on board June 6, this after doing his creative magic for Belo’s powerhouse WWL in New Orleans. Josh is one of the Geaux Tigers of Louisiana State University who worked at WWL two times, once as an intern. After he did a stint at WJTV in Jackson, Mississippi, he again checked into the NO CBS affil. He’s always known he was meant for The Big Apple. Well Dunne! Josh. You Geaux get ‘em up there. And somebody please point Mr. Meza in the direction of great lox and bagels. He’s never had them and is in for a treat.
Cute idea that DIY NETWORK came up with – redoing the dressing rooms at Nashville’s Grand Ole Opry. It’s for an October show. Cool.
While you know that WUSA’s STEVE HOUK is tearin’ it up with his band in the DC area, him being lead singer and all…word filtered in that Vegas Promo Director ERIC DAHL is a great guitarist, too. Eric works at KVMY/KVCW in the city of showgirls and slot machines. Wouldn’t it be fun to put together an all-PROMAX band? Somebody work on that.
Good news from the folks at Ebert & Roper – ROGER EBERT is getting better everyday. His recovery from a ruptured carotid artery has been long, but he’s on the mend big time. Loves taking sidetrips to the Apple store – good medicine indeed. Buena Vista TV’s DEBBIE ZARCOFF was kind enough to take a minute to share that. She’s knee deep in preparing the Ebert & Roper PROMAX session set for NYC in a few weeks.
Holidays are meant to take it easy, and that’s exactly what this writer is going to do for the next five days. Exchanging my laptop for drinks with little umbrellas in them, trading email for a fun trashy paperback, letting my sprained ankle get better. So go, enjoy, spend happy moments with those you want to be with, and come back later next week for more Well Dunne! Perhaps by then I’ll have somebody tell me the details of the latest hip West Coast craze – drag queen bingo.
