Today is the first day ERIN MARTIN is spending as Promotion Manager at Scripps’ WXYZ in Detroit. Ms. Erin is a Southfield, MI native (google map it) and her hire has made her new boss, CSD DAVE BAUMANN, a very happy man. The impressive Ms. Martin is coming from CBS affil WKMG in Orlando where she had the PM title. Erin has graced the promo efforts of WFTV in Orlando and started her broadcast adventure in the news departments of WOFL in O’Town and WWMT in one of my favorite places, Kalamazoo. Very Well Dunne! Erin.
Sending healing and laughter (which is the best medicine) to Well Dunne!’s NICK SANABRIA, who is recovering from getting some knee work done. His voice is 1000% so that’s a good thing. You all do know he’s the creative behind the hilarious, but NSFW, Horserace, right?

Think About This: “When you have spiritual security, you have no more feeling of need for material security. I don’t know anybody who feels more secure than I do—and, of course, people think l am the poorest of the poor. I know better, I am the richest of the rich. I have health, happiness, inner peace—things you couldn’t buy if you were a billionaire." ~ Peace Pilgrim
