From the Land of Enchantment comes word of a very nice promotion at Hearst’s KOAT. Landing fulltime in the CSD chair is DOUG DONAHOO, who had been interim CSD after TONY REED transitioned to Promotion Manager at WESH in Orlando. Doug is a Kansas guy, hailing from Overland Park (which is a KC burb) who has been out in Albuquerque for the last two years as Assistant CSD. A Jayhawk, who follows basketball and is thrilled with how that all worked out, Doug has worked at a cable operation in Lawrence while he was a student as well as doing topicals at KCTV in KC. Sounds like he’s on a definite upward trajectory. Well Dunne! Doug.
