What? A weekend edition of Well Dunne!? Why not. Because it’s for a great documentary done by a very important man….and its a great way to spend your time. If you can’t catch it, then record it for later. But check out Memphis: Facing the Cross which is the story of Andrew Young’s revisiting Memphis and the Lorraine Motel where he witnessed the assasination of Martin Luther King, Jr…his friend and mentor. Google Andrew Young if you don’t know who he is. There might be a quiz…
Here’s the cities, stations and times you have to choose from this weekend:
St Louis KPLR Saturday Feb 17 at 8pm
New York City WWOR Sunday Feb. 18 at 3pm
Milwaukee WISN Sunday Feb. 18 at 4pm
Pittsburgh WTAE Sunday Feb 18 at 5pm
Shout out to BONNIE BARCLAY and all her good work with Andrew Young’s Foundation.
Off to the Bay Area…that’s KATHIE SMITH’s plan. She’s going to FOX’s KTVU to head up creative/marketing…so many different titles do they all really mean something different? It’s a VP slot..bravo. Ms. Smith is going to be leaving FOX KTBC in Austin. Yep, everybody’s favorite city Austin, capital of Texas and all-round amazing place to live. And that’s a VP slot as well. Kathie’s been in Austin quite some time, so she’s no doubt got a lot of packing to do. Let’s all wish her a Well Dunne!
What can one do when one fails to live up to a promise? Humbly apologize and hope that it’s a learning situation. Such is the case with the one and wonderful BONNIE BARCLAY, whose involvement with Andrew Young Foundation’s documentaries had a high note last Friday evening, when their latest doc hit the airwaves in Tampa, Detroit, Mobile, Minneapolis, Macon and Tallahassee. Should have been in last Friday’s post. Totally dropped the ball. Mea culpa. But wait..there’s hope – in market #1! You New Yorkers can tune in to WWOR this coming Sunday, February 18 at 3pm. The doc is called Facing the Cross. Andrew Young returns to the Lorraine Motel in Memphis, Tenn. for the first time since witnessing the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Watch. Or record. Quality TV meets history. Rare and worth the time. Well Dunne! Ms. Barclay.
Let’s hear it for GENE ROBINSON who got a promotion recently. He had been Interim Chief Operating Officer for Arizona Public Media in Tucson for the past several months. His usual role was Director of Marketing-Communications and Brand Manager. But he got the official new title (and not doubt duties and compensation) Chief Marketing Officer. Well Dunne! Gene.
