If you love tennis, golf, bicycling, walking along the ocean, nice people, amazing weather and pelicans, then Ponte Vedra Beach, FL. is right up your alley.  PVB, as it is known to the locals, is just north of Ste. Augustine, America’s oldest city. PVB is also part of the Jacksonville FL market. I mention it because Jacksonville’s got a new resident who is a pro at TV marketing. Put out the welcome mat for SHERRY CARPTENTER, the new Creative Services Director at Post Newsweek’s WJXT. Sherry is arriving in the palm tree laden town just in time to enjoy the 80 degree days. Back in Pittsburgh, where she had been CSD at WTAE, the high will reach somewhere in the low 30;s…and there is snow. Good exchange.  Ms. Sherry has done that TV promo thing in northern markets like Cincinnati and Cleveland. She’s going to LOVE the south. She hails from Indiana, Pennsylvania, home to Well Dunne! Talent’s KELLY PIDGEON. Coincidence? There are no coincidences…it all means something.  Well Dunne! Sherry.

Job Alert: NICK ALLARD needs a promo producer. Here’s the deets:
If your idea of effective news promotion starts with a slow push in on talent – please, skip to the next ad.

If you think that social media is just a flash in the pan, you’ll probably want to look somewhere else.

And, if you think that there’s an “I” in teamwork, well, quite frankly, you need to learn how to spell!

If you’re ready, however, to be a part of a department that is a true creative team and have proven that you work and think outside of the box, please read on!  It just might be your time to shine!
KCCI-TV, a Hearst Television station and CBS affiliate in Des Moines, IA, has an immediate opening for its next creative promotion superstar.  This promo powerhouse should be an extremely creative and energetic promotion writer/producer with a strong video skill set and a passion for news.  After all, you will be part of the team responsible for aggressively promoting Des Moines’ #1 News product and its station programming.
You must be able to take a spot from concept to air (script writing, field and studio shooting, non-linear editing and post production.) You will be working with the creative and talented staff at KCCI to produce station image spots, news and programming tune-in spots, non-traditional news topicals and other station production as needed.

Ideally, you will have 2-3 years of broadcast experience in either news or advertising.  You must have strong Adobe CS skills – After Effects, Photoshop and Premiere is an absolute must.  3-D compositing and other graphic design experience is a huge plus. You must have a creative flair, be able to multi-task and be able to work effectively under tight deadlines.

So, what do you think? Are you ready to take your career to the next level?

Is online privacy ‘situational’?

Nice article on the new MSNBC Lean Forward campaign.

Think About This:
"A child’s world is fresh and new and beautiful, full of wonder and excitement. It is our misfortune that for most of us that clear-eyed vision, that true instinct for what is beautiful and awe-inspiring, is dimmed and even lost before we reach adulthood." ~ Rachel Carson
