Don’t you just love it when someone you’ve known ages and ages ends up getting a great job? Yea…it’s so rewarding. The inspiration for this is MARSHALL HITES, who has been tapped Director Creative Services and Marketing at Trib’s KTLA in LaLa Land. Marshall has been in LA a long time, having helmed the marketing efforts at KCBS and KCAL. He’s a Georgia boy by birth who earned his promo stripes in Florida in Jacksonville and Tampa. Did I mention he’s one of the good guys? Yeah, he is. Well Dunne! Marshall.

ELLEN DAVIS, who gets a gold star for being the most prompt person to reply to inquiries ever…well, Ellen is now Creative Director at SmashPoint Creative Works up in suburban Connecticut. The NYC girl will manage on-air for Maury, Jerry Springer and Steve Wilkos. The Umass grad has been freelancing in The Apple and her portfolio is tres impressive with work for NBC, Comedy Central, Lifetime, BBC America, Nickelodeon and HBO to name a few. Well Dunne! Ellen.

It’s the High Season down in Palm Beach, darlings. And word from CSD HEATH MYRICK is that he hired a Graphic Artist for ABC affil WPBF. Already at the keyboard is PATRICK JOSEPH who made the switch from the FOX affil in PB. Heath is thrilled that Patrick teaches music and 3D animation and has his artwork in galleries all over Florida. Wow – take a gander at his paintings. http://www.patrickjoseph.org  Well Dunne! Patrick and Heath.

Best wishes and good healing thought going out to Well Dunne! Talent’s BILL HARWELL down in Austin, TX and to the better half of FOX5 DC’s MIKE HENRY.

It’s a promotion and it’s a VERY long distance and it’s exciting and….it’s ERIN MARTIN’S news. She’s trading her title of Promotion Manager at WFTV and WRDQ in Orlando for a promotion to Seattle’s KIRO, where she’ll be Promotion Manager at this CBS affil. It’s all a Cox family move…all stations are owned by them. Ms. Martin is going 2,550 miles across America after 7 years in O-town. The Detroit native is going to fly, along with her dog and cat, for an Oct 25 start date. She’ll be working under CSD MATT LAWS and is thrilled to be joining a great team. She’ll be greatly missed by her Orlando CSD BOB ST CHARLES, but he’s thrilled for her. Besides the extra work in November, Erin is looking forward to exploring the Great Northwest and the gorgeous city, including the local wineries. Note to  Seattle – play up the winery angle in addition to the ownership you have on the coffee situation. Congratulations and Well Dunne! Erin.

Yes, that means there’s an exciting opening in Orlando!

Welcome to Well Dunne! Talent goes out to BILL HARWELL, who calls Austin home. Bill has that friendly ‘guy next door” sound, and he delivers projects so fast, you won’t believe that in real life, he’s a laid back pro. Give Bill a listen and remember him when you need that perfect voice for a project.

Are you keeping up with the fabulous streaming video that NATPE is doing? I was blown away when I “attended” a panel discussion called Stop Whining and Sell Your Show. I was one of 31,000, btw. Now I’m totally hooked on NATPE’s offerings. Next up is a Sept 24 session called Building the World — Multiplatform and Transmedia Storytelling. Check out details here.

You know how cool those LA food trucks are. Well, the latest, greatest is…wait for it…The Bacon Truck!  Follow it on Twitter

Think About This: “If love is an action, how do you express self-love? Self-love starts with having the courage to be who you are, regardless of what others might think. It is about having the courage to live your dreams, to do what makes you happy in life, so that one day you won’t wake up saying, "I wish I had." Self-love is about self-care, making your health a priority. Self-love is revealed in your willingness to stay focused on the things you say are important. It’s about having the courage to set boundaries and protect them.” ~ Francine Ward
