Hey Cher…down New Orleans way comes word that BILLY PILGRIM JR. has been promoted at the Hearst NBC affiliate WDSU. He’s now Promotion Manager. Congrats and Well Dunne! Billy called with the new on the day they had snow in NO – totally out of the normal weather range for the Crescent City. The white covering didn’t last long nor did it cool down the hot times the city is noted for. Billy’s been at the station over a year as writer producer and got the bump last week. He’d been holding down the creative fort in the wake of CSD JOE SCHILTZ‘s departure and #2 JEFF FUNK’s move back home to Atlanta. Did such a good job, they reintated the formerly erased #2 slot and gave it to Mr. P. Billy will be part of the great team waiting for new CSD ANDREE BOYD ZAMARLIK when she takes over. Happy Holidays, Billy! Thanks for the update.

Trailer Park, the promo marketing group out of LA whose name just works, has a new guy on board. EVAN GEERLINGS is tasked with Business Development of the newly created Digital Design Group. Cool. Read about it on the B&C site by clicking.

For those of you from fully functional family units, don’t listen to the NICK SANABRIA ditty that pokes fun at the holiday family gatherings happening this time of the year. Nick is a Well Dunne! Talent talent whose voice is perfect for TV work. I can’t load the blasted thing on this site…so just email me via Linked In and I’ll get it to you. It’s HILARIOUS!

Congrats to the new Chief Mareting Officer for Oprah’s OWN Network. LIZ DOLAN comes over from Nike to take the lead and she’ll office in Burbank. She’s a Brown grad with a background in radio as part of the Satellite Sisters.

Lots going on down Louisiana way, cher. Many of you know Andree Boyd. She’s now ANDREE BOYD ZAMARLIK. Has been, actually, for two years…she got married to the Marine of her dreams. That in and of itself is a Happy Ending worthy of sharing. But there’s more and it’s all good. After 20 years heading up the Creative Services Department at Raycom’s WAFB, the CBS affil in Baton Rouge, she’s heading to the head creative seat at Hearst’s WDSU in New Orleans. NO is her hometown to boot. The job change is all about timing. Her mom is getting up there and needs a little more attention, which Andree can now give her. Mom, btw, lost everything in Katrina and has survived to tell all about it. A single mom who raised a daughter and son, Andree wasn’t interested in changing jobs but, when her little girl graduated from high school, the idea of repotting herself was open. I told you timing is everything. Mix it all up, and you have New Orleans’ gain. A hearty Well Dunne! to this talented and fun creative. Andree, looking forward to keeping in touch.

Sony Pictures TV media relations has named a new one to the VP club. Arizona State grad KAREN BARRAGAN is now the VP for the broadcast, cable and digital programming down in Culver City. She calls BOB OSWAKS boss. Well Dunne! Add to that a new hire – CAROLINA MENDOZA is now Director of Media Relations, based in NYC. She comes over from AMC.

Speaking of Sony and Culver City, set designer RICHARD STILES is noted for his design for Wheel of Fortune. Sadly, he passed away. Also gone is radio giant BILL DRAKE, who made rock and roll radio a teens best friend back in the days of transistor radios.
