Top-drawer entertainment PR shop The Lippin Group has picked up JIM BENSON as a Senior VP. He’ll be handling all the exciting clients from their LA address. Jim’s most recent venture was as co-bureau chief of BROADCASTING & CABLE Magazine and before that he did high-level communications and PR for Universal and the USA Net. Yep, he also wrote about TV for Variety. Love to hear about good people getting great jobs. Well Dunne!
Joining the Sr. VP club, Communications division, is LESLIEANNE WADE, who’s with CBS Sports. The New Jersey girl has been with The Eye Net since 1998 as a VP. She’s a grad of St. Mary’s College in Notre Dame, Indiana. Yes, she is still calling GIL SCHWARTZ, EVP of Communications of CBS Corp and SEAN MCMANUS, President of CBS News and Sports boss. Well Dunne!
Lots of you having bad weather…stay warm and safe. Let me know if you have anything exciting to share. Tomorrow, I’ll have the latest from AMANDA CHILDS down in Charleston, one of the most gorgeous cities around. She has a new Promo Producer.
Think about this: "I have faith in the truth, in its ability to find us…. If the truth often seems elusive when we seek it directly, perhaps it is some consolation that it also relentlessly reveals itself to us in our lives, our dreams, and the stories we tell one another."
