This is a gorgeous time of the year up in Minnesota. Sparkling lake waters once again invite boats and people, trees and flowers are in full bloom and the temps are perfect for being comfortable and sleeping with the windows open. That makes it especially wonderful for PAUL GAULKE, who has taken the slot of Creative Services Director of KSTP, the ABC affil in the Twin Cities. Paul and his lovely wife traded their Richmond, VA address for one in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area when she took a job there the end of ’08. Paul had been with Media General for 11 years and this new opportunity will enable him to continue to strategize, manage and keep the creative streak going for the fine folks at Hubbard. The slot opened when ANDREA CREECH followed her heart with the man of her dreams. Ah, romance! This is, btw, not the first time Paul has worked in the Twin Cities. He was at KARE as an intern! Full circle, I see. Yes, he has a degree from U Minn Twin Cities, too. Great news, Paul. And Well Dunne!

Angry ads? Yep, the NYT writes about how to channel consumer outrage. No doubt they checked the price of gasoline lately…oh, no. The gasoline companies don’t usually advertise anymore…
