I have always loved GARRY MARSHALL. Seriously love him. I dream of working with him someday, somehow. I’ll even walk his dog (which is not a euphemism, people.) Here’s Gary’s video about the WRITERS STRIKE

“How greedy can you get? They won’t share the internet.” That’s the chant outside ABC and here’s talented SANDRA OH’s video about the strike.

Lots going on in the Media General world, and a big thanks goes out to PAUL GAULKE for sharing the following info.

Leaving behind the Gateway to the West and the Arch of St. Louis is MIKE MINGRONI. He’s heading east to Richmond, VA to be the Art Director of Media General’s Central Graphics Undertaking. The new MGBG Central Graphics Operation. The new undertaking will provide a wide range of graphics for news, marketing, sales and special projects across the company’s 23 network-affiliated television stations. In StL, Mike was VP of graphics for ACME’s WB affil KPLR. His new boss will be JIM DOYLE, general manager of of MGCGO. Well Dunne! Mike.

Speaking of Richmond, I need to set things straight in regards to CBS6, WTVR. I confused MATT McCLAIN with the new promo manager there. Matt is the Commercial Production guy and the slot that ANDY SCHWABE left open when he started his own business is still open. And they are looking for someone great to fill it. Ideal locale puts you close to the mountains, the ocean and DC. Contact the very kind BILL ANDERSON, Director of Marketing, for more info. You would love working for him. Thanks for your help, Bill and I know you’ll find just the right person soonest.

Down in Panama City, where white sand beaches are lapped by aqua blue waves 24/7 comes more Media General news about WMBB, the ABC affil. JOSH COMBS is the new Marketing Manager, replacing MARC MORRISTON who’s now at WCNC in Charlotte. It’s actually a promotion for Josh, who began his TV career in Indianapolis in ’98 while a student. When Mr. Combs transferred to Indiana U in Bloomington, he worked at PBS affil WTIU and earned his bachelor’s in telecommunications. He’s done radio as well, DJing as well as being a reporter and weatherman. Sounds so cool. Well Dunne! Josh.

Think about this: "Resist pessimism and negative thinking both in private and national life. Think only good. ‘Think God.’ Whatever your trouble, put God, and thoughts of God, in place of that trouble. Think godly things. Even if he or she does not appear to be doing so, see that your brother-sister is striving towards God. See the world developing and growing more spiritual." ~ White Eagle
