What a pleasure it is to see the kind of enthusiasm that CHRISSY FUNK brings to her job heading up the creative folks at Palm Beach’s CBS affil, WPEC. Ms. Chrissy is incredible all on her own. An adventuresome outdoors woman, she left TV for a spell while she hiked the Appalachian Trail and made waves as a body builder. It’s her work life that has her focus now. A lot of phone calls come this way that are quite the opposite of excited (the biz is pretty wonky even if we don’t want to admit it) but she has the inner excitement that brings about the kind of work we all want to do. What brought this all to mind is her latest campaign, which you can see here. Always a big fan of using music and/or jingles (when Well Dunne!), she shared the following: “This has been such a fun and rewarding project to be a part of (and it’s not over yet)! The CBS12 News creative team has worked crazy shifts, shooting all hours, to gather imagery for this brand campaign. Promotion Manager, JOHN GILLIAM, got in a cage with an alligator for a special moment, who does that?! Luckily him, the gator and FujiXH1 were safe through it all. Then, Promotion Producer, KYLE LACKORE, busted out a Sony A73 to ensure we captured certain light just right. Oh, and of course we couldn’t resist a beauty shot with our drone. That would be a disservice of course. As for the song composition… Noise Distillery helped us bring the vision to life. Rich and his team are phenomenal to work with and yes, they tolerated how much I wanted to be involved in the process. And all my edit requests.” Let’s give them all a double Well Dunne!…one for the campaign and one for bringing happiness back to the fore.
Well Dunne! to LEC COBLE, who’s returning to Tucson where he once headed creative at KOLD TV before getting the nod to head up marketing for the Raycom chain, RIP. He’s going to be Station Manager for TEGNA’s operation in the Sonoran desert city. All the better for riding his motorcycle.
