Besides knowing how to write, edit, plan, concept, do meetings, write reports and manage other creative people (think herding cats)…there are those TV marketing folks who take to the boards. Last night , WCIA’s PETE BARRETT was on stage in Champaign, IL, singing those Abba hits in the musical Mama Mia. Yes, he sings – and dances as well. Pretty amazing. Up Detroit way, DAVE BAUMANN, who is the Marketing and Creative Director of Stephen Arnold Music, has himself let his inner thespian loose this year when he was in Guys & Dolls. The photos were priceless. Back down in Maine, JOHN SCHRANK is a regular on stage in Portland when he’s not working promo-side at WGME. LEE COOLEY turned his CSD knowledge and now directs plays in the Phoenix market. Won a big award for it as well – a Zonie. So ladies, any of you have the actress bug?
