And this makes the Seattle news a hat trick…Run Studios has hired former WFAA promo pro BILL CASTELLO to be part of their creative team. Run works with Amazon to produce video and training materials for world wide customer service reps who take calls about Amazon hardware, like Kindle, Alexa, FireTV and soon to be others.. in 14 languages. That means I might have talked to one of them. Love the Kindle…reading a lot more with it. Back to Bill, who has been on the job and has worked on a project in Italian and beginning one in French. Bill calls Waco home and has helmed the creative departmentsat KWTX, where he worked his way up form entry level tasks. He also helped Baylor doing multimedia productions before leaving Texas to find happiness and love in Seattle. Yes, he’s a Baylor Bear. Very Well Dunne! Bill.
Voice pro DAVID TYLER lost his father last week. He will be laid to rest atop Mount Royal, next to his wife and David’s mother. The flags will be lowered at McGill University in Montreal in honor of the former professor. We send our condolences, David.

WANE lining…that might be a way to describe the WANE-TV to WISH-TV connection that has two former WANEer TV promo talents now doing great things at CW affil WISH in Indianapolis. Joining former WANEer JERRY GRIDER, who is now WISH’s Promotion Manager, is COURTNEY HARSHMAN LEITSCHUH (pronounced ‘Light Shoe’) now his Assistant Promo Manager. The two call CSD SCOTT HAINEY boss. You do know, of course, that WANE is Fort Wayne’s CBS affil, owned by Media General – also the owner of WISH. Another WANE-WISH connection is the WANE News Director who was hired from (sure, go ahead…take a guess) WISH. Back to Ms. Courtney, who spent creative chop-honing time at NBC in Miami as well as being Sr. Creative Services Producer at WCPO in Cincinnati. She’s an Indiana U Bloomington grad and has a fabulous smile. Well Dunne! Courtney.
Sending comforting thoughts to BILL CASTELLO down in Waco who lost his father last week. God bless, Bill.

It’s a promotion for BRANDON SEIER, who traded his Promotion Manager title for Marketing Director at Richmond’s WWBT, NBC in the Virginia capital. Brandon had his hands full with snow warnings but sounded very happy. Well Dunne! Brandon.
Ouch ouch ouch…poor BILL CASTELLO. He fractured his pelvis and is in the hospital instead of his office at KWKT, Fox in Waco, TX where he is the Creative Services Manager. Send him get well wishes via his facebook page or – such an idea – send him a real card in the mail. Here’s to fast, painless healing, Bill.

Looking for a fun book? Pick up former freelance writer NOELA HUESO’s The Art of the Croods. Noela reinvented herself, as only a talented writer can do, and her book is totally delightful.
Think About This: "A half-lived life, as Herman Melville describes it, is one in which we do not get to that inner place of peace and joy. Perhaps the most devastating scenario imaginable is to face death knowing that because of some imagined fear, you have always chosen a half-lived life in which you avoided doing the things your heart beckoned you to do. I urge you to change the scenario now. Start living your life with the courage to follow your heart.” ~ Wayne Dyer
