Hitting Sarasota Sunday – tornadoes. Starting at Sarasota’s WWSB Monday – GAYLE BEATTY. No need to guess what major story will be the focus of her first day’s promo efforts. Ms. Gayle is heading up the marketing for the Calkins-owned ABC in one of America’s most gorgeous cities. Yes, despite the tornado problem, which is extremely rare, Sarasota sits on the Gulf of Mexico and reminds one of Monte Carlo. After a stint as Promo Manager for Scripps’ WFTS, ABC in Tampa-St Pete, Gayle is taking the Sunshine Skyway south, maintaining her desire to keep palm trees in her life. The Benton Illinois native has a degree from SIU Carbondale and her first ‘real’ TV job was at KSNW in Wichita. She headed south to Houston after that, working and producing at KHOU, KHBW, and KIAH. Gayle is creative and persistent. Excellent. A very well deserved Well Dunne! Ms. Beatty.
Viva Jose! From the Creative suite to the Executive suite…it’s a wonderful journey. One that JOSE SUAREZ is on. He’s the newly named General Manager of KDVA, Telemundo in San Antonio. He’s coming over from Miami where he’s been Director of Creative Services and Programming for WTVJ, the network-owned NBC station in The Magic City. He’s no stranger to Texas, having worked in San Angelo at KSAN. Along the way, he’s honed his TV knowledge and skills at WSFL and WFOR in Miami, WUPW in Toledo and as Director of Digital Programs for the Telemundo Station Group. Well Dunne! Jose. Just in time to get ready for Fiesta!
Mistake that needs fixing – KSTP is looking for a CSD. Not what was posted. Sorry for that. Here’s the link. http://kstp.com/jobs/
Think About This: “And it’s a human need to be told stories. The more we’re governed by idiots and have no control over our destinies, the more we need to tell stories to each other about who we are, why we are, where we come from, and what might be possible.” ~ Alan Rickman
