Promo magic. It’s what everybody does, right? True. But out in California, one promo pro really DOES magic. JIM GRAVINA is, by day, the CSD at NBC affil KSEE in Fresno. But by night, he turns into a magician. One that not only does his own card tricks but has a fascinating side business that helps other magicians and their branding. Check out the website motionmagician.com Jim and his magic are headed to Vegas for the PROMAX station summit, so keep your eye out for him and enjoy his slight of hand. He’s been perfecting this for 15 years and I would definitely want to sit next to him at the Black Jack tables. Standing out in Vegas takes someone extra special, and Mr. G is it.

Speaking of PROMAX in Vegas, be on the lookout for Sin City’s own JIM KOONCE. He’s the CSD at ABC affil KNTV out there. He’ll be in and out of the gathering plus he’ll be armed with a camera to take pictures for this very blog. Say ‘cheese’ and check back to see what comes through. Well Dunne! ya’ll.
