Nothing like coming home, which is what KATIE WORTHAN did when she traded her writer producer slot at Hubbard’s NBC affil in Albuquerque, KOB, for the Sr. Writer Producer slot at LIN’s WISH in Indianapolis. She’s from Central Indiana, so it’s all a very good thing. Saw some of her work in NM and it was very good! Enjoy being home, Katie, and a shout out to your boss, CSD SCOTT HAINEY. Well Dunne!
KURT BARTOLICH will kick off February by taking the CSD slot at Meredith’s CBS affil in Kansas City, KCTV. Kurt has been in KC doing his own thing called Guts Marketing after being in Columbia, MO where he headed up corporate marketing for JW Communications, the owner of KMIZ, the ABC affil in that college town. A grad of Central Missouri State, Kurt spent several years with Magid. Well Dunne! Kurt.
Promo Whiz PHIL KRAFT, who is knockin’ ‘em dead at KTVT in DFW, has heard from his family members still living in Haiti and all is well. Or as well as can be expected. His Aunt and Uncle are healthy – their house not so much. His Aunt, btw, was the translator for PRESIDENT JIMMY CARTER on his visits to the island nation and she’s very well connected, speaking several languages. I wonder if your News Departments are actually thinking through the enormous details involved in going down to this country, which has NOTHING. They really need to give Phil a call and he can give you important tips, many which would be lifesavers. Lifesavers.
We can all afford to help in some way. End of lecture.
Think About This: "We each have the choice in any setting to step back and let go of the mind-set of scarcity. Once we let go of scarcity, we discover the surprising truth of sufficiency. By sufficiency, I don’t mean a quantity of anything. Sufficiency isn’t two steps up from poverty or one step short of abundance. It isn’t a measure of barely enough or more than enough. Sufficiency isn’t an amount at all. It is an experience, a context we generate, a declaration, a knowing that there is enough, and that we are enough." ~ Lynne Twist
