Nothing really crystalizes the difference between the West and the East in this country like the current weather. With arid blue skies from the Pacific to the Appalachians, we sit and watch the water in the Southeast keep rising…and rising…and changing people’s lives. Hard to get all happy-frappy about a long list of new job announcements when so many familiar places are inundated. There are news and promo pros working without rest to help and there are stations high and dry asking viewers to show their generosity – which they are. It’s heartwarming and necessary. Well Dunne! to each and everyone.

Tomorrow, happy-frappy news.

A cousin who was an emergency room nurse for years had a saying: the gates are wide open. Like most Irish first daughters, the family uses humor to blunt the pain of real life, When she announced the gates were open, she meant the Pearly Gates and she meant that people were leaving the planet fin droves or heaven. Sadly, the gates are open again at the moment. Please send your kind thoughts to KCPQ’s SYDNEY RUBIN whose mother has left us. And please send your kind thoughts to WHNT’s BECKY SHORES whose mother also has left. Both of these talented women are caring and generous. Bless them. Their mothers raised two amazing ladies and I know their mothers are proud of them beyond words.

Think About This:  I am your mother. You are my child. I am your quiet place. You are my wild. I am your calm face. You are my giggle. I am your wait. You are my wiggle. I am your dinner. You are my chocolate cake. I am your bedtime. You are my wide awake. I am your lullaby. You are my peek-a-boo. I am your goodnight kiss. You are my I love you.

The very week she begins as an official promo producer, NAOMI PIECE has a hurricane to deal with. A Major hurricane to be precise. As they say in the south, bless her heart. The young marketing pro was studying journalism and landed an internship at WNCT, the Nexstar CBS/CW duop in Greenville, NC. Greenville is about an hour and a half from the ocean, but Florence might muscle through like a member of the Russian mob to rough up eastern NC. Back to Naomi…she was doing the news internship and on her last day, she sat with CSD MARC MORRISTON (a favorite!) and his crew. She fell in love with TV marketing, and when she went back to college (either UNC Pembroke or East Carolina – she went to both) she focused on marketing and promotion. How terrific. She’s new but is fitting in like a vet. Naomi, you’ll have a great story to tell. What a way to begin! Well Dunne! and best of luck to you Naomi!

Seventeen years since the towers fell. Americans, in those 17 years, have forgotten how unified we were then. They’ve turned on the media. Turned on truth. Turned on ‘those people’ whomever that may be. Let this 9-11 anniversary be a time to reconsider the divisions and wonder if all the days of living since that perfect September morning in New York might have brought about a different result. As Gandi said…be the change you want to see.

Ready to take on a great new job as well as the daunting traffic in Atlanta is RICK SNYDER who is the new VP of Creative for Fox O&O WAGA. Isn’t that JEFF ZELLMER’s slot you ask? Well it was, but Jeff has gotten a promotion to handle regional creative management duties, so that led to Rick’s focus of WAGA itself. Very cool…growth in a time of no-so-much. Mr. S is vacating his Director of Creative Services role at ABC affil WKRN in Nashville. The Elon University grad has a long track record working with FOX. For instance, he got his first TV station job producing promos and doing graphics for Fox affil WGHP in High Point (home of furniture) and then graduated to VP of Creative for WBRC in Birmingham. Again Fox. Then down in the Big Orlando, he repeated the VP Creative role for WOFL.  He tore things up in a great way as VP for Speed Channel in Charlotte. So there ya have it…he’s the ideal candidate for Atlanta. See ya Rick before 2019 dawns. Everybody, a big and hearty Well Dunne! Rick.

Looks like Hurricane Florence is headed to the coast of NC and SC and VA. Best hurricane tip shared by a lifelong hurricane alley resident is this: Fill zip lock bags with good water and throw in freezer. They will keep foods cool when electricity goes away and can be used as drinking water after they melt. You’re welcome.

There’s something very elegant yet laid back about Palm Springs and the whole desert that’s grown up around the Hollywood getaway. Maybe it’s the white light wrapped palm trees that stretch for miles along Palm Canyon Drive. Or the ghosts of Frank Sinatra or Bob Hope who loved the dry heat. Yet again, perhaps all the writers who decamped Los Angeles to let the desert be their muse for screenplays are leaving behind clouds of creativity. It’s a delightful place. The place where MATT PARISE has a new job! He’s the new Director of Marketing and Communication for NBC affil KMIR, now owned by Entravision. Matt got his foot in the TV door at KMIR and with the exception of a few years spent in San Diego doing promo at KUSI, he’s been doing all kinds of things and getting promotions. Matt credits the sparkling MANNY DELA ROSA with getting him into the promo world. Manny, btw, is now Manny The Movie Guy and is at the Toronto Film Fest as you read this. Such a small and fun circle of people we deal with, eh? Matt’s a great guy and we need to all send him a great big Well Dunne!

Dallas is flat as a pancake while Denver sits at the foot of the majestic Rockies. Bringing this to your attention as a way to announce BLAIR NELSON is heading from Big D to another Big D – she’s the new Director of Brand and Brand for KUSA, NBC in Colorado’s capital. Ms. Blair has been at Dallas’ WFAA as Brand Development Manager, so this is an in-company promotion. Always good to see. And she’s an SMU grad to boot. Go Ponies! Ahhh…a college match. Ms. Blair has a rather oblique connection to Colorado…before going to FAA, she was a Regional Account Exec for a MillerCoors, which as any beer drinker knows is headquartered in Golden, Colorado. She worked at a Plano agency as well. Most impressively, she participated in Leadership Dallas. A big Well Dunne! and an SMU high five to Blair.

Chris is a Kansas U grad who’s been at the station eight years, first in news and then as a promo producer. CSD RANDY THURMAN had great things to say, and he has a great eye for talent.

Remember when you were a promo producer and you would think about what it would be like to call the shots? Not that you didn’t like or even adore your boss, but it’s a creative dream to be the lead sled dog. One such person about to get to do exactly that…return to where he produced promos to now lead is SPENCER ERNST. Yes, he’s a favorite. Spencer is heading down I-44 to Springfield, MO to take the Marketing Director slot at KYTV-3, the NBC affil owned by Gray or Schurz or both (FCC paperwork being the determining factor). Spencer has been under the Arch in St. Louis at KMOV where he handled digital content producing. Actually, he was a repeat man at the CBS affil there as well, having done a stint as a broadcast assistant there early on in his career. The diploma he has is from the prestigious Univ of Missouri Journalism school. Yes, he was once a reporter in Columbia. Have a blast, Spencer and Well Dunne!

When someone is regarded as a jewel, it means they really know their stuff. When the new Promotion Manager of Cox’s WHBQ, Fox in Memphis, is referred to as a jewel, it’s got a double meaning because she’s a certified diamondtologist. Wow…so cool. The lady with the lupe in her eye and the new title is EMILY STRICKLIN-YATES. CSD RON DEJOSEPH has promoted her  from being a writer producer and sounded very happy about it when he shared the news. Emily is a grad of Middle Tennessee State U in Murfreesboro and worked in Jackson, MS as an evening news producer for WDBD before going to Memphis to produce promos for FOX 13. She’s a jewel for sure (and can tell you if your sparkler is a good one). Well Dunne! Emily.

Men and their hairstyles are very lucky. They don’t have to worry about humidity, which can be a hairdo’s worst enemy. So when ANDREW JOHNSTON trades the low, low humidity of Palm Springs for the ‘water as air’ atmosphere of Miami, he’ll never have to worry about a Bad Hair Day. Andrew has taken the Marketing and Promotions Manager slot at Miami’s NBC O&O. He’ll be giving up the wieldy title of Director of Marketing, Production, Digital and Creative Services for KMIR in The Springs, where he once was a photog editor in the early days of his career. He’s no stranger to NBC either, having worked in many different creative capacities either shooting, editing or producing for WNBC and NBC Sports Bay Area. Along the way he’s been in San Diego and DC. No doubt he’s stocked up on sunscreen already and ready for the colorful, exciting Miami scene. Well Dunne! Andrew.

For the “it’s too hot to think clearly’ crowd…Well Dunne is a Blog and more…it’s a talent management firm for the best VO peeps around. I know…I’m a producer at heart via hands-on, grab the ratings, see the revenue and win the awards. Check it out and make sure your Voice is Well Dunne. Carry on.

You would think that with a name like Sinclair, you would work for Sinclair, right? I mean, a TV person and all that. But no…SINCLAIR WALKER works for Nexstar. Their Waco, TX operation to be precise. Sinclair is the new CSD at KWKT, Fox in Steve Martin’s hometown. Sinclair had been Creative Services Assistant at the station, so his promotion is well deserved. Sinclair is a Texas Longhorn and worked editing and producing in Tyler. How about a rousing Texas Well Dunne! Sinclair.

August…the month when nature practically demands we slow down. Perfect for getting away, reading, painting, traveling – doing what recharges that inner spark. This August finds some of you in Africa, China and taking children and grandchildren to favorite places. It finds a lot of you dropping children off at colleges and experiencing sadness and joy and worry and nostalgia all at once. This August, as we watch the shadows shift ever so slightly, and the business we know change at the speed of light, let’s focus on the things that make us happy.

Art makes me happy and there’s no place like New Mexico where art is such a part of every moment. Our news today comes from KOAT in Albuquerque, where the incomparable CSD DEILIA RAY WILLIAMS has promoted MATT MONTOYA  to be her new Assistant Creative Services Director.  Matt’s a graphic artist, you see, which means the already great-looking KOAT marketing will have an even more exciting gleam to it. The New Mexico State grad got his start in TV at Vegas’ KLAS where he wrote, produced and edited. After being Senior Editor at Sun Media Productions he joined the Hearst ABC as Graphic Designer. Sounds like he’s in the right place with the right talent. Well Dunne! Matt.

There’s a very fine line (if it exists at all) between marketing programming and making programming. Jumping back and forth should be easy, but a lot of folks don’t seem to understand the relationship between the two. Then again, some get it…and a talented person takes on the job of Executive Producer. It’s what ED ROTH has done. Kudos to the owners of AZTV in Phoenix for nabbing him to be the EP for their Arizona Daily Mix. Ed had been handling marketing for syndie The List. Ed got a degree from Boston U and even studied at Texas in Austin. He worked with the legendary team of Jacobs and Gerber where they really taught him the in’s and out’s of copywriting. He’s been Creative Director for Catspaw Productions (RIP Doug Paul) and for Disney back when it was Buena Vista TV.  Ed’s put his creative stamp on Fox Broadcasting’s shows, Vacation TV and a slew of cable nets. Most fun was working with the San Diego Padres…Ed’s a baseball man. He’s getting up with the sun and loving it. Round of applause for his new gig. Well Dunne! Ed.

At the behest of the one and only BONNIE BARCLAY, who knows  more about marketing than most of us can ever pick up….a retelling of an event that shaped a great company and should be at the heart of them all:  

My dad told me how to run a company…back when I was a teenager he took me to his office on a Sunday afternoon. He was a partner in a large general contracting firm. The whole back lot was full of massive equipment, and even a paving machine (they owned one of the first in the country). He asked what I saw and I said “your company”.  He put his pipe back in his mouth and said “come inside”. Once there, on the floor where he had the corner office, he asked what I saw again, and I saw desks and offices and typewriters…none of which was the right answer. He said “every chair you see…each one…that’s where people sit. Everything else is just hardware. It’s people that make this work and without them, all you have is a lot of junk nobody knows how to use.”

Well Dunne! John Dunne. So glad you aren’t alive today because what is happening would kill you.

G’day Mate. Yes, an Ozzie greeting to kick off an Ozzie getting a fab new slot. The man from Down Under is none other than TIM RC. ANDERSON who took the Creative Director slot for CBS Corp out in LA, which is closer to home than his New York-based former job as Creative Director of NBCUniversal Media.  Tim got his creative career launched scheduling on-air promos for Foxtel in Sydney before trying his hand at writing and producing said promos for them.  He then went to Seven Network before coming to the states to work in LA for the Entertainment Marketing folks at NBCU. Warner Bros was his next stop where he was Exec CD for Worldwide TV Marketing. The lure of New York called him east and he freelanced and threw his hand into NBCU’s efforts once again. Krikey! That’s great. Big Well Dunne! Tim RC.

It’s summer. It’s hot. And there are reruns. Sometimes it seems reruns are more ubiquitous because there are life events that just keep happening and then they get shared. We have yet another wonderful creative who is making a step on his TV marketing career, this time up in Utica where THOMAS LINDSAY has joined WUTR/WFXV, the Nexstar owned ABC/Fox duop. Thomas has a degree in Broadcasting and Screen Arts from SUNY. For those non-New Yorkers SUNY – Oswego is State University New York in, yep, Oswego. And was he busy there…not letting an opportunity go by. He got hands-on experience at the school’s TV channel, WTOP in a number of roles and ended up VP of Productions. That’s terrific! You should see the list of apps and programs Thomas knows…impressive. Let’s welcome him and say Well Dunne!

How delightful to write about one of the best. Talkin’ about JIM THOMAS, who is going to start next week wrangling the creative at Tribune’s KDVR/KWGN in Denver. It’s Fox/CW respectively. Jim has been running his own consulting since he left Magid where he handled marketing for their client stations, and did a marvelous job of it, being a marketing pro and not a newsie who believes they know marketing. Jim is a Penn State grad who has a ton of experience particularly with the Journal Broadcast Group, which blended with Scripps. He held the title of VP Marketing New Media and Programming and even was an interim GM for them at one time. The man is as creative as he is solid. Great choice for Denver. A personal Well Dunne! Jim – to you my friend.

Meanwhile, an ad that got rejected from the WDT blog job posting wants someone who can: do all news graphics for in show and marketing, shoot, write and produce image and topicals, do community outreach events and spots, create spots for advertisers, do the daily logs and post on social media through the day plus, my favorite –  receive constructive criticism.  And we wonder why it’s hard to fill open marketing slots.
