Tulsa, OK has had a very long, hot summer. Triple digit temps and fires breaking out that wipe out whole neighborhoods. It’s a great market despite it all, and it’s about to get even better. BRANDT DOTSON is heading to T-town to be the new Sr. Creative Services Producer for Scripps’ ABC affil KJRH. He’ll be working with the talented SAMANTHA KNOWLTON, CSD, which is another plus. Brant is making the switch from working at Hearst’s NBC affil KCRA in Sacramento after spending a little time with family in the southwest. Mr. Dotson is from Arizona and has worked in Tucson and Phoenix in his TV marketing career. He’s one of the good guys and we can’t be happier for him. Plus, he will be working with Well Dunne! Talent’s RICH VANSLYKE. A huge Well Dunne! to Brandt.
Job Alert – One of my fave CSDs is KEN BAUER, who not only is happy to welcome a great new News Director in the form of GREG SHEPPERD (he’s a great guy to work with) but is looking for an Assistant CSD, Great chance for a step up. Go for it.
