Up Boston way comes word of a hire at the Hearst ABC affil, WCVB. MATT LEBOWITZ has joined the Creative Services team, led by RUSS NELLIGAN. Mr. L is a Senior Writer Producer for them. Matt drives up I-95 from his creative slot at Clear Channel’s CBS affil WPRI in Providence, RI. Matt (my all time favorite name!) was also at ABC affil WJLA in DC. He’s an East Coast kinda guy, hailing from Severna Park, Maryland… just outside of Annapolis. Well Dunne! Matt. You will so love Beantown! He’s been hard at work since mid-September.
PROMAX Vice Chair ADAM STOTSKY has been promoted – at his job, not at PROMAX. Way cool on the job thing. He’s at the Sci-Fi Channel and his new biz cards read EVP of Global Brand Strategy and Market Development. As part of the Peacock family (NBC U for those who like full names) Adam is going to help launch some new channels in Europe, Latin America and Asia, plus work with video gaming, youths (anybody remember Cousin Vinny?) and merchandising. Adam’s boss is DAVE HOWE, EVP and GM of Sci Fi.
Are you a Comcast customer? If yes, then here’s your chance to make demands of that demanding household perfectionist herself, MARTHA STEWART. Ms. Martha is now On Demand with all kinds of great info, projects and the like. Cool.
Models, chefs, singers…now add jingle writers to the reality show professions. None other than MARK BURNETT (Survivor, etc. Go imdb him) has pitched a game show to CBS where contestants are judged by coming up with new jingles for old products. Gee, it’s getting hard enough to get a good job anymore with all the professional talent around…does this REALLY seem like an entertaining idea?? Variety had the story.
