Just about a month ago. Super Station Manager, News Director and all round great guy HOLLIS GRIZZARD promoted SERGIO RODRIGUEZ to the Marketing and Promotion Manager slot at El Paso’s KDBC/KTSM, the NBC/CBS combo respectively. Sergio is a Texan, who was born and raised in El Paso and even graduated from UTEP. Before his promotion, he was editing and producing. Know why he’s particularly lucky, other than he doesn’t have to pack and unpack? Because Hollis gets it when it comes to promotion. And he isn’t afraid to do things off the beaten path. Well Dunne! Sergio.
Looking for a job? Here are some good tips on new media usage, specifically Twitter, for you.
Speaking of jobs, this is what is available as of today (that I know of – if you know of more, share)
CSD slots at KMOV in St. Louis, KDVR in Denver, KLRT in Little Rock, WDSU in New Orleans, WAWS in Jacksonville, and WFTS in Tampa. Promo Manager slots are open in WXLV Winston Salem, NC, KPRC in Houston and KLTV/KTRE in Tyler, TX.
FLASH – Disney is going to sign off SoapNet, and in its place put on Disney Jr for the little tiny kids. Lots of jobs will either be switching all together or the promo folks at SoapNet are on the street…wow. More bad news for LA entertainment jobs.
Baby, check out the rating for Betty White on SNL. Now, ask yourself…why aren’t more Over 40 folks from TV not ON TV?

Ahhh, this makes one blush. CHUCK SPRUILL got his new job via this very blog. Chuck is going to Belo’s ABC affil in Norfolk, WVEC come June 7. He learned about the opening when he read that CLYDE BECKER was going to The Reelz Channel. The rest, as they say, is the beginning of a new chapter of history. It’s a homecoming for Chuck, actually. He was born in Norfolk and then moved just south to NC. He’ll be closer to his family now, as well as outstanding seafood and lots of bridges. A grad of East Carolina in Greenville, Chuck literally stumbled into the TV studio there and knew instantly he had found his calling. That was 25 years ago, and he still loves the tube. Since leaving WBTW in the fall of 2007, Chuck has run cs3media…creating ads/marketing plans/branding for small businesses and non-profits. Prior to WBTW, Mr. S 5 years as the creative director with a local ad agency, and before that spent 9 years with ABC affiliate WPDE. He’s worked for CBS affil WNCT – his first job in the biz. Well Dunne! Chuck.
BETTY WHITE is the hottest mama out there right now, and well deserved. She rocked SNL and drew in the numbers, leading to the possibility of CAROL BURNETT doing a host turn for them. Loving it. Betty, btw, is guesting on Leno tonight. I hope he asks her what vitamins she’s taking.
Loving the new Snapple spots featuring the trio of Pandas. And the lines! OMG so good!
Sales guy to Pandas: Are you familiar with tea?
Panda: Hello, we’re from China. We know tea.
It’s outta control! And it can ruin your TV viewing experience, no matter what platform you’re choosing.

Trading tacos for coffee is MATT LAWS, named the new head of creative at Seattle’s KIRO TV. Matt is saying adios to San Antonio, where he had been heading the marketing for Newport’s WOAI, the NBC affil on the lovely Riverwalk. He heads to the COX owned CBS affil, which marks the first time Matt has worked with The Eye Net. He’s earned his stripes at WLWT in Cincy, KOCO in Oklahoma City, and WUPW in Toledo. You’ll love working near the water, Matt. He’ll no doubt miss San Antonio’s famous Fiesta, set for April. But his successor will have the best party in the world to look forward to, and great parking to boot. Well Dunne! Matt. Keep in touch.
