At the behest of the one and only BONNIE BARCLAY, who knows  more about marketing than most of us can ever pick up….a retelling of an event that shaped a great company and should be at the heart of them all:  

My dad told me how to run a company…back when I was a teenager he took me to his office on a Sunday afternoon. He was a partner in a large general contracting firm. The whole back lot was full of massive equipment, and even a paving machine (they owned one of the first in the country). He asked what I saw and I said “your company”.  He put his pipe back in his mouth and said “come inside”. Once there, on the floor where he had the corner office, he asked what I saw again, and I saw desks and offices and typewriters…none of which was the right answer. He said “every chair you see…each one…that’s where people sit. Everything else is just hardware. It’s people that make this work and without them, all you have is a lot of junk nobody knows how to use.”

Well Dunne! John Dunne. So glad you aren’t alive today because what is happening would kill you.

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.

It was nearly a year ago that BEN READ was written up as the new CSD at KBJR, the Quincy Newspaper-owned NBC affil in Duluth, Minnesota. And yet…it didn’t hit the blog. No doubt it was before the Word Press classes and all. So let’s play Catchup Monday and give out a shout to Ben, who’s been doing a great job in what might be the coolest place in the US at the moment. Mid to low 70’s this week. Ben brought tons of talent to the job, as well as a stint being Assistant CSD at one time. Sorry for the delay Ben, but please accept a hearty Well Dunne!


What’s with some employers (stations, networks, cable nets, agencies, etc) who are creative in scope…what’s with them asking for a TON of work, input, ideas even scripts (!) as a requisite for getting a job? Do they really want all that FREE creative just handed to them? Can they not read a resume and look at former work to determine whether you are their cup of tea? Should you ‘bend the knee’ and do it then submit an invoice for consulting? Seems to me an entity that does this is NOT one that any real creative would want to work for. If the employer is this insipid as to creative people, imagine how awful it would be to try to deal with them daily. This paragraph is entirely the thoughts of this writer and is not intended to portray any known entity, blah blah blah…

He’s a bull dog, a Georgia Bulldog that is. Thus JOSH MOREY has been living and doing very well career-wise in Alabama, which in football lingo isn’t really home turf. But he’s loving it. Josh and family recently celebrated his new job – Marketing Director of Birmingham’s Fox Affil, WBRC. It’s a 92 mile trip northwest from Montgomery, where he had been Marketing Director of WSFA, the NBC affil and Raycom flagship. He honed the promo craft while writing and producing down in Albany, GA for WALB. Know he’s gonna love Birmingham. And Birmingham will fall in love with his lovely family. Well Dunne! Josh!

This from the wonderful and fabulous BONNIE BARCLAY, VP of Marketing for FX Design Group who has been on an adventure with her family around America: In the dark theater, the voice came up before the first frame, with immediate recognition.  Without blinking or stumbling, I knew it as Walter Cronkite.  We were visiting FDR’s Little White House in rural Georgia, and stopped in the theater for the short video that all museums proudly suggest as your first stop.  But through the war footage, the polio footage, the presidential campaign – it was Walter’s voice that not only brought it to life, but lent the austere gravitas that only his voice could.  We could nightly wrap ourselves in that cashmere blanket of a voice and know that we might make sense of the world.  That is the power of just one voice.

Playing catch up since hires during the February book aren’t tres abundant…let’s hear it for KATHARYN DEVILLE who was upped to Corporate Director of Marketing for Raycom. Katharyn is an LSU tiger who earned her degree from LSU in Shreveport. After a first job as a jack-of-all-trades newspaper pro, Katharyn became a News Producer for KSLA in Shreveport then went over to WGNO in New Orleans, still in News where she became an Executive Producer. From there, she went to Big D and WFAA where she grew into a Digital Producer then Digital Marketing and Product Manager. Before making the leap to Raycom corporate, she was Marketing Director at KTBS in, where else, Shreveport. A big Well Dunne! Katharyn.

Former Promo Pro BRAD MOSES has been GM’ing it and has a new station to wrangle. Hope all the folks at KAKE in Wichita welcome him warmly. Well Dunne! Brad.

JOHN RICE at Charlotte’s WBTV is all cool with a new news set. Yeah BONNIE BARCLAY and the talented folks at FX Designs for the new digs.

Midwesterners are just special. Hard working, talented and friendly. Love meeting them and then following their careers. As is the case with KU grad (he’s a Jayhawk) CHRIS FARRIS, who has been growing that talent from the time he left Lawrence, where KU is located, first on the east coast then on the west. Now, Mr. Farris has a new job that will combine the world of tech and the world of creative production…sublime. Chris is the new video producer for BrightTALK, a San Francisco area company that is pretty cool. Chris has his TV stripes, beginning in Topeka at KSNT where he produced commercials and was upped to Commercial Production Manager. Portland, Maine was next where Chris jumped into news promotion. He returned to native Kansas as Director and Producer for Footage Productions in Lawrence before heading east to Baltimore’s WBAL as Sr. Promo Producer then Promotion Manager. NBC in the Bay Area brought him to the City by the Bay as Sr. Producer and he did freelance commercial producing for KTVU. He’ll be a major ‘get’ for BrightTALK and we can’t wait to hear about it. Well Dunne! Chris!

The creative process is amazing…and describing it is akin to describing a Monet or Picasso to a blind child. It’s nearly impossible to capture the steps and energy involved in creativity, but you know it when you see it. You actually feel it. And the results speak for themselves. One of the most creative people I’ve ever worked with is TOM ROGERS, who has found a perfect new slot for his gifts – as Commercial Production guy at Gannett’s KSDK in St. Louis. He’ll be working with clients who want high end work and they’ll be getting it from Tom. He’s had a fabulous track record, most recently heading up Promotion at KTVI in The Lou, and he’s turned promos out for KMOV and KDNL all in the Arch City. A big creative Well Dunne! to Tom.


The lovely BONNIE BARCLAY of FX Designs has a great new blog post worth the click.

So for those reading this while taking refuge from the Vegas heat, take note and get your RSVP ready for just such a liquid oasis thanks to the one and only BONNIE BARCLAY and her boss MACK McLAUGHLIN of FX Design Group.

Oh, and as a special bonus OLIVIER COHEN of Hybrid TV will be mixing Caipirnhas, the Brazilian concoction known as their national cocktail (perhaps in homage to the World Cup?) Have one of both for me and tell them all Well Dunne! 

Speaking of Brazil…Love it! El Rey Network has a soccer/spy thriller series in the works for debut July 15. Called Matador – it has nothing to do with bull fighting. Bet all involved are glued to the World Cup, eh?

A market with three major universities, a handful of impressive colleges, scientists abounding with could-be-life-changing ideas in the Research Triangle, a state capital – all within a short drive to the ocean. Sublimely it’s the Raleigh-Durham market of North Carolina. And it’s the future home for ADAM FRARY who has taken the CSD-Programming position at ABC’s WTVD. He’ll be coming east from Louisville where he’s been Marketing Manager at Raycom’s NBC affil, WAVE, as well as President of the Marketing Advisory Board with Raycom.

His good looks (true…even if he blushes) found him in front of the camera anchoring student news reports while also producing commercials. After an internship at CNN, and a degree from Vincennes U, he went to work for Raycom at their stations in Montgomery, AL, Evansville, and the aforementioned L’ville. Dad of three boys, he has a dog named Daisy and is a big fan of Notre Dame football. He’s going to love working with WTVD’s muy-talented producer BRANSON KIMBALL when Adam begins June 23. Well Dunne!

From the ‘Better Late Than Never’ category, we turn our attentions to HEATH OLDHAM, who has been doing creative for Media General’s WSLS, the NBC affiliate in lovely Roanoke, VA. Just how long he’s been Marketing Director …. does it really matter? Of course not. Let’s just leave it that he’s a super guy doing a myriad of creative tasks for them. Heath is an Elon grad (it’s between Greensboro and Chapel Hill…again, gorgeous country and an impressive school) who kicked off his TV career at WLFL/WRDC in Raleigh. After got his feet wet in TV marketing at WCWG as CSD, he took 95 north to Richmond where he helmed creative for WUPV then WTVR. He’s an avid photographer and a ham radio enthusiast to boot. Well Dunne! Heath.
