Promotions…always such great things to get and to hear about. Such is the case with NBC’s BILL HARTNETT, who is now the Senior Vice President/Advertising and Promotion for The NBC Agency, East Coast. The wonderful FRANK RADICE, EVP of The NBC Agency is his boss out in NYC. Bill was a VP on the ’right coast’ before the bump up in title and responsibility. Not too shabby for a guy who started as a promo Ass’t at KTZZ in Seattle, Washington. He’s a Northwest guy who seems very happy in Jersey, where he lives with his family. Bill has been working his way up the ladder at NBC since his days at WNBC and has even done freelance for The Peacock. Congrats Bill! Well Dunne! And enjoy your promotion world, which includes the MSNBC creative services squad.
Down in Atlanta’s Turner Broadcasting System (we know it as TBS) comes word of another promotion. Ms. ALEXIS HAMBRICK is the new Director of Entertainment Network and Sports Marketing for the sales folks. Well Dunne!
Toronto-based Breakthrough Films & Television has grabbed ALETHEA ROBINSON to be their Manager/Marketing and Communications for the popular content provider. Alethea comes to them from a similar slot at DeCode Entertainment. Her boss is PETER WILLIAMSON, Executive Producer/Partner.
