KEVIN GORYL is heading back to the Midwest…to Cincinnati actually. He’ll take his first shot at running a Creative Services Department when he steps behind the desk at Raycom’s FOX affil, WXIX. Kevin has spent time at KTVI in St. Louis (hometown high five), as well as two DC stations – WTTG and W*USA. Well Dunne! Kevin. Remember, the folks in Cincy put cinnamon in their chile, so be on the lookout for that.
The sudden, tragic death of 27 yr old JOHN BILLINGSLEY, who worked as a news photog at WLOS in Asheville, hit close to home – he was a friend of my son MATTHEW. A grad of Appalachian State University in Boone, NC, John had worked at WLOS as well as a short stint as a photog in Memphis. But the Delta wasn’t the mountains, and John returned to the area that made him happy. He is greatly missed by those he worked with as well as his many, many friends.
Those of you who are so inclined, please remember KDKA CSD TINA VEON’s father as well as former WNCN Special Sales MARYANN BALBO’s father. Both are struggling with major health challenges.
Is your station doing Haiti relief outreach? If so, please share. Good ideas for a common cause is what networking is about, n’est-ce pas?
