CBS Chicago has gone through a lot of changes in the last six or so months. New building, new address, new ND and GM. The latest change is in their marketing chair to head the advertising, promotion and new media presence. Who did they find? Someone who knows the Chicagoland area well. JIM CORBOY is taking over that all-important slot. I’ll be talking with Jim this week and will have a nice backgrounder after we chat, so check back for that. Well Dunne! Jim.
Speaking of Chicago, WILLIAM CRAIG has traded his slot at WGN in The Windy City for the #2 slot at ABC affil WFTS in the sunny Tampa-St. Pete, FL area. Yeah, sounds like a plan. William is working for CSD DONNA WILSON. Enjoy that area, Mr. Craig – it’s home to one of my favorite beaches!

NYTimes has a slammin’ profile on NBC’s programming guru, Ben Silverman.
Think About This: “I love dangerous questions — questions that do not have easy or immediate answers and the process of answering is transformative. Answering potentially dangerous questions requires self honesty, introspection and a willingness to be authentic. I call such questions dangerous because they have the ability to shatter our self made selves thereby creating an opening for something brand new. I believe dangerous questions flow from Spirit in order to prepare us for a new relationship with Life.” ~ Richard Beattie
