Ahhh, this makes one blush. CHUCK SPRUILL got his new job via this very blog. Chuck is going to Belo’s ABC affil in Norfolk, WVEC come June 7. He learned about the opening when he read that CLYDE BECKER was going to The Reelz Channel. The rest, as they say, is the beginning of a new chapter of history. It’s a homecoming for Chuck, actually. He was born in Norfolk and then moved just south to NC. He’ll be closer to his family now, as well as outstanding seafood and lots of bridges. A grad of East Carolina in Greenville, Chuck literally stumbled into the TV studio there and knew instantly he had found his calling. That was 25 years ago, and he still loves the tube. Since leaving WBTW in the fall of 2007, Chuck has run cs3media…creating ads/marketing plans/branding for small businesses and non-profits. Prior to WBTW, Mr. S 5 years as the creative director with a local ad agency, and before that spent 9 years with ABC affiliate WPDE. He’s worked for CBS affil WNCT – his first job in the biz. Well Dunne! Chuck.
BETTY WHITE is the hottest mama out there right now, and well deserved. She rocked SNL and drew in the numbers, leading to the possibility of CAROL BURNETT doing a host turn for them. Loving it. Betty, btw, is guesting on Leno tonight. I hope he asks her what vitamins she’s taking.
Loving the new Snapple spots featuring the trio of Pandas. And the lines! OMG so good!
Sales guy to Pandas: Are you familiar with tea?
Panda: Hello, we’re from China. We know tea.
It’s outta control! And it can ruin your TV viewing experience, no matter what platform you’re choosing.
