There’s no place like home. Dorothy knew that and spent her time in Oz looking to return to Kansas. Most of us don’t have to worry about a Wizard or a hot air balloon to do this. Despite it all, Home is still what calls us, and so many of you make changes with that as the focal point. How can we get the HR people to understand that going home…being close to family…is not just a valid point, but THE valid point in life’s path. Such is the case with two wonderful Creatives. BOBBY RIGG is back in Houston amongst family and making the folks happy at KHOU where he’s Sr. Writer Producer. Heading home to the Pacific Northwest is KEVIN KIRKALDIE, who had been at the Nexstar duop in Memphis. He’s a super guy, so all you NW folks who are on the lookout for someone super…he’s your man. Well Dunne! Bobby and Kevin.
Get out the confetti and streamers…it’s an anniversary. Voice man MARK DRISCOLL started his radio career on this date quite a few years ago. He’s made huge impacts in NYC, LA, Philly…you get the idea. Of course, he’s been nicknamed Mr. Voice by RICK DEES.

The Sacramento-Phoenix connection is pretty strong. Two Phoenix Marketing Directors come direct from Cali’s capital…plus one GM, and now BOBBY RIGG is part of the Sacto Crowd. Mr Bobby is the new Marketing Manager for Scripp’s syndicated show, THE LIST, which launches Sept 17 across the USA. Very exciting. Bobby comes out of Houston’s KHOU where he was Sr. Writer Producer for CSD DALE LOCKETT at the Belo-owned CBS affil. The Sacramento connection lies with his work at Hearst’s KCRA. He started his TV marketing career at KZTV, the CBS affiliate in beautiful Corpus Christi. The University of Houston grad also attended UT in Austin. Well Dunne! Bobby.
