Trading one seaside market for another. Yes, it sounds like a dream and yes, it can be done. Just ask KELLY DONNELL, who is going to leave New Orleans for Portland, Maine. Kelly is a real Southern guy who has worked in NO and survived it all…Katrina, floods, hurricanes, too much Mardi Gras and even the fabulous rich foods that the Crescent City claims as theirs. While in the Big Easy, Kelly has been creative honcho at NO’s net affils WDSU, WVUE and is leaving the Tribune ABC station, WGNO, after two years as their Creative Services Director. Portland awaits as does his new job as Marketing Manager at Sinclair’s WGME in beautiful Portland. For those who aren’t familiar with Portland, it’s hard on the Atlantic offering a sophisticated lifestyle that entices. Kelly has also worked on the Pacific coast at KGO in San Francisco. To make sure he experienced all kinds of terrain, he’s also done that desert thing at KGUN in Tucson. Glad to hear the news, Kelly. And let us know your thoughts about trading crawfish for lobster. Well Dunne!
