If you’re going to begin a new job, start on a short week. That’s great advice, eh? It’s what TOBY HERSHKOWITZE has done. He began the 19th as the new Multi Media Marketing Producer for WABC. He’s going to work with BRANDON NELSON’s crew (Brandon is Promotion and Digital Brand Manager) at Lincoln Square. Toby comes from ESPN up in Bristol, CT where for the last 8 years, he was Associate Producer for the weekly newsmagazine E:60. To quote Brandon, “You may have seen his handiwork on the amazing “Comeback Season” recently on Channel 7, a moving documentary on the return of sports after 9/11. While at ESPN, he won 3 Emmy Awards. He helped produced dozens of features and long-form profiles on everyone from Muhammad Ali to Yankee outfielder Aaron Judge.” NYC is where Toby calls home, so this is gonna be great. A big Well Dunne! to Toby and a thanks to Brandon.
Whether your idea of Thanksgiving means a big family gathering around a roast turkey, or a football marathon, nap, movie, online shopping, or even reading a book (yes, you can actually do that), may you find peace, happiness, and laughter. We are all so very blessed and lucky. This has been a rough year…let’s count our blessings and remember to do what we can to make the holiday season better for those who are not as lucky.
Think About This: An Irish blessing:
May God give you… For every storm, a rainbow, For every tear, a smile, For every care, a promise, And a blessing in each trial. For every problem life sends, A faithful friend to share, For every sigh, a sweet song, And an answer to each prayer.
It’s a St. Louis streak…yes it is. What are da chances. Today we have another St. Louisan with great news. Makes the hometown heart swell. This particular native is now in market #1, New York City, and he’s been promoted at the #1 station there. Yeah, that is very exciting. Come on down BRANDON NELSON, promoted to Promotion and Digital Brand Manager of WABC. He’s a Mizzou grad (go Tigers!) who went on to get a Masters from University of Arizona (that’s the one in Tucson). Got his foot in the TV door down in Columbia, MO where he was a production assistant for KOMU. Obviously, he liked the medium and he showed his talents to advantage. Now his old Sr. Writer Producer slot is open in the Big Apple. Meanwhile, Brandon is a major and sincere St. Louis Cardinals fan, which means the man has taste, class and my vote for favorite new acquaintance of the month. Let’s hear it – major Well Dunne! Brandon.
Think About This: “You’re so hard on yourself. Take a moment. Sit back. Marvel at your life: at the grief that softened you, at the heartache that wisened you, at the suffering that strengthened you. Despite everything, you still grow. Be proud of this.” ~ posting on FB thanks MARIA MAGER

JIM GORMAN’s creative department at NYC’s flagship WABC just announced two exciting happenings. First, KRISTIE GONZALES is going to be taking the Promotion and Digital Brand Manager slot that opened when KAY PONDER announced her retirement. Ms. Kristie will take I-95 north from Raleigh, where she’s been heading up the Creative Services and Programming for WTVD, another ABC property. She’s no stranger to the NE, having worked at WPVI in Philly and WSFN in Fresno. She’ll be starting April 7. Well Dunne! Kristie.
Secondly, promo producer BRANDON NELSON has been promoted to Senior Promotion Producer. He’s a talent that has been on the front line of WABC’s news topical and image efforts, and he’s the go-to guy who knows how to keep the brand happy and on course. Well Dunne! Brandon.

Today is Pi Day. Please, no blonde jokes about lemon meringue.
Anybody see the Jack Daniels spot that ties Sinatra and their brand together? It’s good. So good that I’m not even a whiskey drinker and I want to buy it.
