Missouri folks are favorites. The home state advantage, so to speak. Such is the case with the wonderful DAVID CLEVIDENCE who has been promoted to Creative Services Director at Sinclair’s duop KVCW/KVMY in Las Vegas. Yes, it is the CW/MYTV combo in Sin City.

David has worked doing TV at FOX in Cape Girardeau, MO as well as WDKA in Paducah, KY. Let’s not forget his work at St Louis’ Silver Streak Production Studios. I should have asked if he’s a Cardinal’s baseball fan. Well Dunne! David. Let’s keep in touch.
