Talent is part of the DNA strand, so of course it can be handed down generation to generation like blue eyes or height or musical ability. Some of us have the most interesting, artistic, one-of-a-kind offspring and a few of those offspring have gotten bitten by the TV bug. Now before we stop and argue about what the meaning of TV means in today’s multi-platform world, let’s hear from PETE BARRETT, the man who loves working in this crazy world more than anybody you will ever meet.
KATIE BARRETT has finally landed a job in TV! The KU Grad (she directed the college newscasts) now is Social Media Coordinator for Weigel Broadcasting’s "Heroes and Icons" network, as well as their network "Decades" (both based out of Chicago). Proud Dad would like to relate that their social media activity went up 383% last week! Her primary responsibility has been to promote all the syndicated Star Trek series from "STOS" to "Enterprise," which launched with a big social media splash! She’d based at WCIU in Chicago, and here I am based at WCIA!
Pete is the Production Manager of Nexstar CBS affil WCIA in Champaign, IL, which is a mere 134 miles from Chicago. Well Dunne! Dad and Well Dunne! Katie. I hear a Well Dunne! also goes out to TERRY KOWALSKI for his contribution.
Wanted: Topicals. Reward: Starbucks coffee. Details: Sydney Ruben. Instructions: Do it.
