Southern living isn’t just a magazine with great recipes and striking decorating ideas. Southern living is the pace, social mores and lovely lilt to life lived south of the Mason Dixon line…where thank you notes are still a thing and calling on neighbors to sit and chat over iced tea is done regularly. Getting his first taste of genteel southern life is PETER NOLL, who is the newest resident of Meridian, Mississippi. Besides unpacking from his move from California, PETER’s dance card will be full, what with him being the new Group Director of Marketing and Promotions for Waypoint Media. He’s wrangling Waypoint’s TV stations in Mississippi, Tennessee, Arkansas and Indiana. Peter has worked in marketing and as GM in Tulsa at KJRH, Bakersfield at KERO, WEWS in Cleveland … all after starting at KHOU in Houston. Normally, this is where we say Well Dunne! Peter, but let’s put a southern spin on it and say Well Dunne! Ya’ll.
Job Alert – Producer The Morning Blend KGUN Tuscon (tell ANDY SCHWABE hi!)
There’s nothing liberating, encouraging, exciting or smart about putting people in boxes and not letting them go. Sure, there’s the literal meaning with the accompanying legal repercussions, but the reality in most cases is the aggravating everyday practice of funneling talent into a box they’re already in and not allowing growth. More clearly, if you aren’t doing exactly a certain job phrased in the exact language used in an ad, then you have zero chance of even making a case to do the job in question. In other words, you’re in a box with no clear supportive development path. It stinks and it has to stop. Nobody finds their higher and best self in repetition. More on this to come…along with a very exciting announcement. Stay tuned.
