What’s new in Cleveland? Well, the 2007 crop of inductees to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame have already done their thing. And the Cleveland Clinic is still the leading cardiovascular facility. Let’s see…what else. Oh, yeah…WEWS has hired a Marketing Director! Coming on board the ABC affil owned by Scripps is PETER NOLL, who’s leaving his Scripps station in Tulsa, KJRH. He won’t turn in his Oklahoma station ID card until July, but is looking forward to the move East. His new station is near the arts district, and you know what they say: location, location, location. The Minnesota native grew up watching the newscasts on KARE, KSTP and WCCO and decided he wanted to be a journalist. With his journalism diploma in hand from University of St. Thomas, Peter’s first gig was in news producing at KGAN in Cedar Rapids. From there, he was off to KELOLand in South Dakota (Lakota Sioux country) and then to Belo’s KOTV in Tulsa. There, he met Creative Director BUD BROWN. Bud turned Peter from “the dark side” and the rest is promo history. Peter has also worked for CSD DALE LOCKETT at KHOU in Houston and CSD GENE ROBINSON at KCRA in Sacramento. Glad to have met you, Peter. Well Dunne!
And as a sidebar…BUD has gone on to be GM at Belo’s WWL in New Orleans. Cool. FYI- there is a Belo Madagascar. Who knew?
Toronto’s Guru Studio has brought two aboard. SUSAN MA will produce TV and longform work while SKY BJARNASON will produce broadcast and commercial work. Well Dunne!
