As a most lovely June winds down and we’re all poised to kick off the July 4th festivities and holiday, had to interrupt some time away with news of one of the best. You can take the boy out of Texas but there’s always a hankering – yes, hankering – to get back to the Lone Star State, politics aside. You don’t have to be born in Texas to be a Texan (but you do have to have a Texas locale on your birth certificate if you want a Native Texan car plate, which you can actually purchase), but you have to have been a resident and loved it and want to return. That’s what Lake Charles, LA native DON SMITH is doing…he’s setting free his Inner Texan and returning to San Antonio and the Tegna CBS affil there, KENS. He’ll be top wrangler for the creative, the official title being Marketing Director. He’s no stranger to SA, having worked at KENS once before when it was a Belo station. Don and his lovely family (his little boy is the cutest thing you can imagine!) will love living there. Confession – my son was born there and it’s a great place for little ones. Mr. Smith is departing his current role as Director of Creative Services at CBS’ KOVR/KMAX in California’s capital, Sacramento. Along the way, Don’s done promo for KHOU in Houston and his first job was at KBMT in Beaumont. Let’s not forget a stop in Salt Lake City and Stun Creative in NYC. So very excited to hear about a very happy creative talent and a city most loved. Get a big place..need a bedroom for next year’s Fiesta! Well Dunne! Don.
