Today, we set our sites on Seattle, home of Starbucks and their FREE COFFEE today! Wahoo. I find all work goes better with a grande nonfat vanilla latte with whip in hand. Seattle has news and it’s all coming from the Tribune stations in the Great Northwest.
JIM CROWNOVER has been named Creative Services Director for Tribune Broadcasting’s Northwest Regional Operating Center, which includes television stations KCPQ-TV/KMYQ-TV in Seattle and KRCW-TV in Portland. Jim climbs up the ladder from his old title, Creative Services Manager, a position he has held for the past three years. Previously, he had served as Creative Services Director at KUWB-TV in Salt Lake City as well as Public Affairs Director and Creative Services producer at KATU-TV in Portland, Ore. A northwest native, Crownover received a Bachelor of Science degree in Speech Communication from Oregon State University. And this is really cool. His GM and boss, PAM PEARSON, has a promo background honed in Chicago. Well Dunne!
The vacancy comes from the departure of JAMIE MCDOWELL, who is leaving local TV. After 5 years of planning, she’s starting Pounce HD Productions, specializing in marketing and digital production services. Wonderful news! She’ll be keeping in touch, and if you need to get hold of her, just let me know. Well Dunne! Jamie.
Come to think about it, let me know about what’s going on in your life, career, or just to chat it up a bit. Movers at 602communications dot com will find it’s way to my Inbox, or perhaps my Bulk Mail. I’ve been having problems, so be patient.
Think About This: “The Sanskrit word ‘ahimsa’ does not contain a negative or passive connotation as does the English translation ‘nonviolence.’ The implication of ‘ahimsa’ is that when all violence subsides in the human heart, the state which remains is love. It is not something that we have to acquire; it is always present, and needs only to be uncovered. This is our real nature, not merely to love one person here, another there, but to be love itself….love in action.” ~ Eknath Easwaran
