Kalamazoo is one of those great names for a city. Nobody can agree about what it means exactly, but the name pops up in songs and rhymes and is just plain fun to say. It’s a great place to spend summers, and for those of us who are into shopping, it’s the city that had the vision to build the first outdoor pedestrian shopping mall in the US back in 1959. Right up the road is Grand Rapids, which is a furniture capital. See the whole shopping theme we have working here? And we mention it because we have great news from the TV market, which encompasses both of these Michigan cities. WOOD, the LIN NBC affil and the sister stations WOTV, ABC and MNTV affil WXSP have a new promotion producer. Welcome KURTIS KAECHELE. Will have to check out more about him… Thanks to KEVIN VANDERKOLK for the info. Kevin is Director of Marketing.
Boston has news. WCVB, the Hearst ABC affil in Beantown has upped ERIN DUGGAN to Media Relations Manager from publicist. Well Dunne!
Here’s a good one…Ops and Marketing Director gets named VP General Manager. It’s happened to TIM INGRAM, who’s been over at Raycom’s ABC affil KLTV in the rose capital of Texas – Tyler. He’s saying Adios to the Lone Star State and heading one state north to take over ABC affil KAIT in Jonesboro, Arkansas. Yep, the state with the only real diamond mine in the country!
Have you seen the BEST edited spot to hit the screen in a long, long time? It’s on A&E for The Sopranos and it required a real mob family fan to go through all the video and find each character mouthing just the right shape to fit the operatic soundtrack. I’m not doing it justice…you gotta see it yourself.
Think about this: “When you are on a journey, it is certainly helpful to know where you are going or at least the general direction in which you are moving, but don’t forget: the only thing that is ultimately real about your journey is the step that you are taking at this moment. That’s all there ever is.” ~ Eckhart Tolle
