Got lots of marketing news on the BROADCASTING & CABLE Fates & Fortune website. Blush, yeah. I do write that one, too. So if you want to know about promotions and hires in the promo and marketing areas of WNET in NYC, Lippin Group in LA, and more, click here.
Out in Portland, which from all accounts seems to be one of the most wonderful places to live in the country (people I trust just rave about it and won’t leave no matter what) comes word from SCOTT WELLS. L. Scott, actually, but we call him Scott. He was at Belo’s NBC affil KGW in The Rose City (Portland’s nickname) but when the GM of ABC affil KATU rang him up and offered him the chance to remake the promo/marketing team, he just couldn’t say no. All without packing up the family and moving, which was an added bonus. Scott’s developing the department and working under News Director DON PRATT. Glad to hear you’re happy, Scott. Keep in touch!
Anybody remember that cool Happy Feet movie trailer? Loved the music…loved the trailer. It was the brainchild of DEBBIE MILLER’S new boss at her new job. Debbie’s done publicity at FOX and is now the EVP/Worldwide Marketing with CBS Films, coming over from Warner Bros. Debbie will report to Amy Baer, President/CEO, CBS Films, which is all part of the happy CBS/Paramount media world.
Speaking of Happy Feet, check out the new video for Family Guy called Dance, Dance, Drop Your Pants. Click here. Yeah it does sound like something we did in college. It’s from those crazy talented guys at World Wide Wadio. Thanks to PAUL FEY for asking me to dance!
