Hope one and all are feeling that Spring excitement! Flowers blooming, kittens and puppies arriving, opening windows to get fresh air inside…revitalizes for sure!
STEVE WOMACK is really digging Huntsville, AL, where’s heading up the creative efforts at WAAY TV, the ABC affil in The Watercress Capital of the World. Now, he’s gotten a promotion. Besides handling the promotions, he’s also the Operations Manager. Congrats and Well Dunne! Steve.
And we thank Steve for the following info on a former workmate of his. In his words: AIMEE ROMERO, Senior Writer/Producer is moving from the Queen City to Sin City. She is raising the stakes… moving from WCNC in Charlotte, NC to KLAS in Las Vegas, NV. She rolled the dice for 5 years at KTNV in Las Vegas before becoming a Southern Belle three years ago working for JOHN RICE in Charlotte. Now Aimee shuffles the deck to work for LEE MINARD at the Las Vegas CBS affiliate. She ‘goes all-in’ beginning April 7th! Good luck Aimee… I mean, really… GOOD LUCK!

ERIN PATTERSON has a new line of work. Same world – TV. But instead of editing hours of news footage, she’s doing creative promotions and marketing for Raycom’s WAAY, NBC down in Huntsville, Alabama. Erin actually came to the promo folks and said she wanted to make the switch, and they were thrilled to grab her. She’s been promoing since and everybody sounds happy. Erin’s a local girl, too, so she didn’t have to unpack boxes and fight with U-Haul. Well Dunne! Erin. And Thanks for BECKY SHORES for the update. Santa is one his way, Becky!
Just a little further south comes word from DONNA WILSON at ABC affil WFTS in the Tampa area about a new hire they made. Joining the creative team at the Scripps – owned station is AMANDA ADAMS of Atlanta. Yes, an AAA lady for sure. Amanda was doing a lot of freelance at FOX up in Georgia’s capital and came highly recommended. She was part of the November sweeps efforts. Well Dunne! Amanda. I hear you are living in the lovely Hyde Park section of town. Lucky girl!
WHNS in Greenville, SC has hired a new CSD, but we all have to wait til next week to find out who it is. So, we will wait and the minute they let it out, you’ll be in the loop.
