This country seems to define itself by what body of water is nearest. The Atlantic means the east coast….the Gulf refers to the southern states which get to have more shrimp than the rest of us…the Mississippi divides us in half…and the Pacific calls out to come across the vast empty west and watch sunsets in the land of opportunity. Heading from the banks of the Mississippi (metaphorically speaking) to the golden west is JOEL FLOWERS, who is embarking on a trek from Sikeston, MO to Thousand Palms, CA, where Mr. Flowers will be hitting the world of TV marketing as a writer producer for CSD KENT KAY at KESQ. The University of Tennessee at Martin grad has been polishing his marketing craft working in radio, where deadlines and marketing messages are the same as TV. In his new job, Joel will be reunited with his old radio on-air co-host, SALLY SAPUTO; the two of them were a hot item and from the sound of things, they will continue to be for News-Press & Gazette Co’s operations. Well Dunne! and safe travels Joel. Don’t fall over when you see the price of petrol in Needles.
Congrats and Well Dunne! to WKYC’s MICKI BYRNES with her new title VP/Station Manager at Gannett-owned NBC affil.. She’s a creative – been a marketing pro in Boston, Atlanta and San Francisco as well as most recently VP of Advertising and Promotion in Cleveland. Always loved her work and working with her on the NBC Promo Board. She also did a campaign that still ranks as one of my favorites ever.
Thoughts and prayers going out to Well Dunne! Talent’s DENA YASNER‘s father recovering from heart surgery.
Think About This: “Three simple rules in life. 1) If you do not go after what you want, you’ll never have it. 2) If you do not ask, the answer will always be no. 3) If you do not step forward, you will always be in the same place.” ~ novelist Nora Roberts
