Who is the newest member of Louisville’s FOX affil WDRB/WMYO creative services team? If you answered WILL BENSON, you win a prize. Taking on the job of News Topical Writer/Producer. Will is heading to Derby Town from his promo gig at Raycom’s NBC affil WFIE in Evansville, Indiana. A native of McCordsville, IN (near Indianapolis), he’s thrilled to be able to stay near family. A grad of Vincennes U, he spent four years with the Army, mainly at Ft. Campbell, KY but also did a tour of Saudi Arabia. WFIE was his first job in TV. BTW, his lovely wife, LeAnn, has already gotten a job in TV in L-town as well…this time for the competition in the sales and traffic departments. DAVID JEWELL is the CSD and Will’s new boss. Well Dunne! Will!

Oh, and David is looking for another writer producer…someone who wants to help with the image function. Get hold of him if that’s what you’re looking for.

Now THIS is an ad get together. Read about Cannes Lion 2008 and ask yourself…with all the skills you have, how come you’re not over there?

Is it me, or does the idea that cartoon characters need to be “made over and updated” seem so, well, so manipulative?? Read this article from the NYT’s and check out the picture of a very sleeked-up and unremarkable Strawberry Shortcake character. I’m voting in the category of Leave My Cartoons Alone.

“The practice of meditation takes us on a fabulous journey into the gap between our thoughts, where all the advantages of a peaceful, stress-free, healthier, fatigue-free life are available, but are simply side benefits. The paramount reason for doing this soul-nourishing meditation practice is to get in the gap between our thoughts and make conscious contact with the creative energy of life itself.” ~ Dr. Wayne Dyer
