Know what vog is? That’s right – vog. It’s what happens in Hawaii when the volcano on Hilo erupts, which it is, and the air looks like what hangs over Glendale on a hot Valley day. Only this is not fog, not vapor, not smog. It’s vog. It’s what MARTY SCHLESINGER says is happening now in the islands. I have a report from Maui that you can’t see the other islands because of the vog. Marty, who rides his bicycle to work and makes great time on the 5-mile commute, is in the market for a new writer producer at his shop, KITV, the Hearst ABC affil in Paradise. So, all you creative folks who don’t mind a little vog in exchange for Waikiki sand and the freshest sushi around, get your stuff together and apply.

Things are not quite so paradise-like at another Hearst-owned station. We’re talking WDSU in New Orleans. When I dialed to see what had become of the talented and lovely JOESEPH SCHILTZ, someone in their Promo Department (you know who you are) hung up on me after asking some of the most, well, interesting questions. Leaving me with no news about their CSD search. So kids, write this down. If you don’t want to share, just say so. Don’t just babble, stammer, act stupid then hang up. It’s considered rude pretty much on a worldwide basis.

Lifetime is going younger and hipper in their marketing. This MEDIAWEEK story tells all.
