What a great way to kick off Monday…. writing about a friend who has been promoted! A huge Well Dunne! goes out to BRANDII TOBY of DYI Network. The lovely Ms. B has been named Director, Press and PR for the Knoxville-based net. KATHLEEN FITCH, Senior Vice President and GM of the net made the announcement, so I’m sure the upping is effective right away. Brandii is also adding to her last name. From now on, it’s going to be TOBY-LEON. Her hubby is a doll who does sports marketing. She came to DIY from working at FOX and the CW in the Big Apple, where she did press and publicity. COOL!
Also at DIY, PETER MOORE has been named Vice President of Special Projects. He’s the head brand policeman now. Moore reports into ROBYN ULRICH, DIY’s SVP of Marketing and Creative Services. Not too shabby for a buy who began freelancing for the Scripps folks back in 2000. Well Dunne! Peter.
Anybody doing the Oprah book club online tonight? Of course I am!
Happy Birthday to SARA DIAZ, who gets this mention in lieu of a Hallmark.
Think about this: “I have never met a person whose greatest need was anything other than real, unconditional love. You can find it in a simple act of kindness toward someone who needs help. There is no mistaking love. You feel it in your heart. It is the common fiber of life, the flame that heats our soul, energizes our spirit and supplies passion to our lives. It is our connection to God and to each other.” ~ Elizabeth Kubler-Ross
