The folks at Hallmark Channel care enough to name SUSANNE SMITH McAVOY senior VP of Marketing. She was formerly VP of Ad Sales. Under the new structure, she’ll do marketing and branding. Oh, and that includes Hallmark Movie Channel, too. Also it’s a homecoming (a real Hallmark moment) for MARK KERN who’s now the VP of Communications and Media Relations. He was with Hallmark when they launched and has a background that includes media and PR for Reelz and Lorne Michaels’ Broadway Video companies. Well Dunne! you two.
As we move into that new world of communicating, MARTIN REIDY is poised to be in the right place at the right time for Meredith…he’s been named President of the Meredith Integrated Marketing unit. He comes from Prez of Publicis Moden and Digital. Cool.
Those of you in Chicago – that means you NICK SANABRIA – make your plans now to avoid what might be a monumental traffic jam in downtown Chicago. Oprah is going to tape her show along the famed Michigan Avenue, aka the Magnificent Mile. Tuesday Sept 8 is the tape date. Oprah never does anything but in a big way…Well Dunne.
