If you’ve been a Well Dunne and IdeaNet reader, you know New Hampshire ranks right up there on the list of “favorite states”. Besides the intelligent population and gorgeous, tree-lined roads, the state is birthplace to both Segway Scooters and Tupperware. Really…Tupperware. It’s also the home to LAURIE PETCHAR, who is happily at work in the Creative Services department of Hearst’s ABC affiliate in Manchester, WMUR. She’s not new to the Live Free or Die state…she lived in Londonderry when she was 2. After being raised in Minnesota and the Detroit area, she graduated from Wayne State U, where she did internships at NBC affil, WDIV in the Motor City as well as at FOX’s KSAZ in Phoenix. She credits JIM GIRODO, VP-Creative down in the desert, with helping her choose to lead a creative life in the world of TV. Way to go Jimmy! Laurie began at WMUR on a part-time basis and just recently went fulltime as a Writer-Producer. Already a promotion for the lady…not shabby. A hockey player who played for her college team and got a scholarship (she’s a winger), she admits to feeling colder now that she’s spent time in Phoenix.
Also at WMUR, KEVIN NORTON is now on board taking the part-time slot that Laurie had. Welcome Kev. And all this is going on while CSD ALEX JASIUKOWICZ and the lovely Mrs. are vacationing in Alaska. Well Dunne! kids.
Olson, the branding company not the twins, has grabbed TROY LONGIE to be their creative director. He has worked with Sesame Street and PBS in the past. Cool. It’s in Minneapolis.
LISA PADILLA has a new gig that sounds very interesting. She’s VP of Marketing for BlogTalk Radio. San Francisco based, you can check it out by clicking here.
