If you begin a conversation with “where did you go to high school?”, then you are having a conversation with a native St. Louisian. It’s one of the oddities of growing up in the Gateway to the West. Nobody knows why. It’s a litmus test of sorts…only St. Louis people will get it. With that in mind, it’s time to bring ADAM HERNDON into the picture. He’s a real St. Louis guy who immediately answered the question and didn’t think twice about it. And now this energetic marketing pro has come back to his hometown as Director of Marketing and Promotions at Tegna’s KSDK, the NBC affiliate. He shares the love of Italian food from The Hill as well as the eternal support for the best baseball team ever, the Cardinals. Gotta love it. Adam is a Mizzou grad (a family tradition) who has always loved Marketing…has two degrees in it; the MBA is from St. Louis U. Back when he was a fresh grad, his father dragged him to a networking event and, within a week, it led to a job in marketing in Chicago, which led him to an experiential marketing gig for Walgreens, which found him driving all over the country. Think of it as a Road Rules kind of situation. He’s worked for marketing firms like Marketing Werks and Fusion Marketing with clients like Anheuser-Busch and the CDC. He’s bringing all that energy to the NBC affiliate. Forgot to ask if he was a Guido’s pizza fan. Let’s have a big Well Dunne! for Adam.
Shout out of Thanks to PETE BARRETT, who was able to answer an equipment problem quickly, easily, correctly and with a smile. That’s what makes a great Go-To guy. Well Dunne!

Think About This: “Every single day, we need to choose hope over fear, diversity over division. Fear has never created a single job or fed a single family. And those who exploit it will never solve the problems that have created such anxiety.” ~ Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau
