Talk about One To Watch…put NOELLE KEARNS on that list. She’s the newest member of JIM HART’S Creative crew at Scripps’ ABC affil KNXV in Phoenix. Noelle began on Monday and is calling The Valley of the Sun home, leaving behind the still wintry weather on the East Coast. She’s as native to Philadelphia as a cheese steak. Noelle began at WPVI in Philly, working her way up from Intern to part-time Associate Promo Producer. Her teachers on this journey? One uber-talented MIKE MONSELL, VP and Creative Honcho at ABC’s station in the City of Brotherly Love. And the other was effervescent KRISTIE GONZALES, now CSD at ABC in Fresno – but when taking Noelle under her wing, Kristie was crafting promos at WPVI. Noelle has a degree from Temple and I hope she gets as big a kick out of the saguaro cactus as I do! Big Well Dunne! Noelle.

Yesterday, I made a mistake and need to fix it right now. STEPHEN ARNOLD is how you spell STEPHEN’s name. With a Ph…not a v. He’s already forgiven me and I won’t make that mistake again. So all you in search of great music, you know how to correctly spell his name!
Think About This: “That seemingly scary condition, whatever it may be, is not the problem. It’s your reaction that has you shaking. And that’s why, if you’ll become conscious of a fearful condition instead of afraid of it, you’ll change forever your relationship with fear." ~ Guy Finley
