Turning 60 is not too shabby. One such birthday with 60 candles on the cake is for CBS affiliate WBTV in Charlotte, NC. The newspaper there has an interesting retrospective about the now Raycom station. CSD JOHN RICE must have his PR hat on. Well Dunne!
Sadly, Charlotte has more news. The passing of former WCNC General Manager STU POWELL. Stu was my boss, and he had what many in the biz now lack- a great sense of humor. He fought but lost a tough battle with cancer. He leaves behind a very loving family and so many happy memories. Stu will always share a bond with me that will never be forgotten – 9/11. It was a call from Stu that made me look up to see the coverage and it was Stu standing next to me when the second plane went into the tower. As a matter of fact, it was Stu who was my first phone call when my brother died. Rest well and in peace.
And the new EVP of Corporate Communications for NBC Universal – ALLISON GOLLUST.
