Just the other day, the mini-rant here on this site dealt with the fact CSDs and creative folk are usually overlooked for General Manager slots, despite the fact they know how things work better than anybody else inside a station/network/operation. Somebody must have been reading and taken it to heart, because a creative is heading to the cornet office of KVUE, the Tegna ABC affiliate in Austin, TX. KRISTIE GONZALES is forsaking her Promotion and Digital Brand Manager slot at ABC flagship WABC in NYC for the Texas Capital where her official title will be President and GM. She’s a New Mexico lady – a lobo – who’s worked in Bakersfield, Philly and Raleigh. Score one for Creatives. Well Dunne! Kristie.
At the same time "we" gain a GM slot, a creative is stepping away from his. MARV DANIELSKI is leaving KSDK in St. Louis in early July. Perhaps a creative will follow in his footsteps? Tegna? Tegna? Buehler?
Job Alert – Promotion and Digital Brand Manager WABC NYC
If you haven’t watched Joy, the Jennifer Lawrence film about the lady who designed a mop, you should. Besides an amazing script (the story about a mop doesn’t necessarily make you get goosebumps so how terrific was that script!) it has a great insight into QVC and marketing. Redbox it.
