Who is singing ‘California Here I Come’? The lovely and talented JORDANA HOUCHINS, who is going to head west over the Memorial Day weekend, the Golden State her destination. SoCal to be exact….LA baby! Jordana will be departing WCCB, Bahakel’s FOX affiliate in Charlotte to take a Promo Producer slot at Trib’s KTLA. Yep, the KTLA over on Sunset…the one with such cool Hollywood history. She won’t be wheeling down Route 66 – no time. She’ll wing it over FlyOver Country, her car to be delivered soon after. See, her new position begins next week. This isn’t the first time Jordana has made the all the way cross-country trek…she moved to Charlotte from her native Seattle, where she worked at KING. Her background in TV News (KENS in San Antonio) combined with her promo background should be just the ticket for KTLA. A huge Hollywood Well Dunne! Jordana. You’ll love LA, just as long as you give yourself time for the traffic.
That means CSD JEFF ARROWOOD (great boss here folks) in Charlotte needs to replace her. Job Alert! If you’re looking for an extremely cutting-edge shop where creativity is the first priority, get Jeff your reel and resume.
CBS News has dubbed SONYA MCNAIR VP/Communications. Sonya has done media relations for ABC News and comes to the EyeNet from doing PR at New Yorker. She’ll work with JEFF BALLABON, SVP/Communications, CBS News. Well Dunne! Sonya
Speaking of cutting edge, the new Toyota Prius spot, named “Harmony” is awesome. I’d post it, but there seems to be a You Tube glitch about it, so you’ll have to click to watch the Behind The Scenes Making Of…so much more exciting.
Speaking of car spots (no, didn’t intend to but that’s where we’re going), check out the great GM ads from over the years…and wonder what happened.
Ladies first…was Oprah asked to do her thing for NBC before Jay? TV Week says yes. The story maintains Jay was actually the third choice…ouch.
So, online net shows are going to save the TV industry? Maybe not. One analyst says it will actually kill it.
