From one state capital to another…GENE ROBINSON is saying adieu to California’s capital Sacramento and is heading to Arizona to head up the creative efforts of Meredith’s CBS affil, KPHO. He’s a California man through and through, from his degree from Cal State Sacramento to his long career at KCRA, where he began as Promotion Manager for then-owner Kelly Broadcasting’s The West. While there, Gene served as News Promo Manager, Assistant Creative Services Director and then as CSD. Hearst took over ownership somewhere along the way. For the last two years, Gene has been Director of the Television Communications Center for the California Highway Patrol. CHiPs. No word on whether he has a motorcycle license or those cool boots Ponch and John wore on the show. Anyway, it’s great news and a big Well Dunne! to Gene. The welcome matt is out for you in the Valley of the Sun.
Happy birthday to the one and only SHORTY BACON.
PETE BARRETT gets our best wishes for a speedy ‘back on your feet’ – he’s getting his knee operated on today and no doubt will be back better than new.
