How busy is the new WTAE Pittsburgh Promotion Manager? SO busy she’s had to postpone one of those great phone conversations full of exciting quotes for this blog. And the reason she’s so busy is that she’s doing two jobs at once. It’s just while they find a new creative to take her old slot. So while TRACY OLIVER, who sounds like a dynamo, toils doing Topicals, we’ll have to just take it from her boss, CSD ED EVEREST, that she’s gotten a well-deserved bump. We’ll check back with Tracy later, but are sending the Hearst CBS PM a big ol’ Well Dunne!
Let’s hear it for DON SMITH. He’s the Promo Manager out at KOVR in Sacramento, working with CSD DREW FOWLER. Don is a major fave and one great guy, who today is celebrating the 4th anniversary of his amazing blog, IDOPROMOZ. Definitely check it out daily. Well Dunne! Don.
Happy birthday to Well Dunne! Talent’s KEVIN MACHADO who’s making LA even hotter than Mother Nature!

Think About This: (This was used by Nelson Mandela in his Inaugural Speech 1994) “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that frightens us most. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and famous?’ Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that people will feel insecure around you. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in all of us. And when we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” ~ Marianne Williamson
