Don’t you just love it when the kids make you proud? When PHIL KRAFT walks into CBS’s KTVT in Dallas/Ft. Worth June 1 to be part of CSD DAVID HERSHEY’s creative team, Phil will be bringing knowledge honed in some of the best newsrooms and creative shops in the biz. Once he was a news editor, banging out stories in a little windowless cubie at Belo’s WCNC in Charlotte. He wanted more (and he probably wanted a window) so he applied to creative services. Then his natural talents took over. He became a cracker jack Topical producer who honed his craft and upped the ante at DC’s WJLA, San Fran’s KPIX and Orlando’s WFTV. Phil calls Miami home, but his Pops lives in nearby San Antonio, so his new Texas life will be exciting. A huge Well Dunne! to him.
