We’re all busy, but some of us are insanely busy. BRENT STRUENSE, the Director of Marketing at Scripps’ FOX affil WFTX In the gorgeous Fort Myers market, spent the last 12 months juggling the following: 1-the normal day-to-day station duties, which in his case is keeping 7 departments and 2 local programming shows all humming along 2-overseeing the station’s $2 mil renovation (if you’ve ever worked with contractors and the like, you can identify) 3-renovated a condo for himself 4-moved (into the condo) and 5-finished up his MBA. WOW…very very cool. He says one must focus, keep at it, and if you’re working full time (or more than full time in his case) find a distance learning program. Ask him about his choice and he’ll sing the praises, even about the accounting classes one must endure for that degree. A major Well Dunne! to MBA Struense. Very proud of ya.

Switching from the Triangle (Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill) to the lovely southwest coast of Florida is Art pro RON SAAVEDRA. He was at News 14 out of the NC capital. Now he’s hard at work for Journal’s FOX outlet, WFTX, in the Ft. Meyers – Naples market. His CSD, BRENT STRUENSE, says Ron has a great eye as well as a real grasp of the many forms of animation. He’s been on the job two weeks now and all is very happy under the palm trees. Well Dunne! Ron.
Interesting article about how news is now a different animal. Reminds me of the old people who used to sit around and read articles to each other. Just sayin. The New Media Metric: How Shareable is Your Content?
One of my favorite stories of all time is about King Arthur and Camelot. Starz Network must like it too, since they’re going to remake it into a series and shoot in Ireland. Top drawer behind the scenes folks involved. Can’t wait.
Our best thoughts and prayers to NICK SANABRIA, Chicago-based Well Dunne! Talent, whose mother in law passed away Saturday.
Think About This: "The best things in life are nearest: Breath in your nostrils, light in your eyes, flowers at your feet, duties at your hand, the path of right just before you. Then do not grasp at the stars, but do life’s plain, common work as it comes, certain that daily duties and daily bread are the sweetest things in life." ~ Robert Louis Stevenson
No secret how much I love the Gulf Coast of Florida. So it was doubly fun to talk with FOX affil WFTX down in Ft. Meyers. How wonderful is that market? Well, it’s the seashell capital of the world and that pretty much seals the deal in my world. But let’s talk about the new Promotion Producer down there, CARA MUELLER. Cara is a native of the Sunshine State, hailing from Tampa. She’s got a diploma from University of Fla as well and Cara is thrilled to be moving from the production end of the biz to the marketing end. She’s what CSD BRENT STRUENSE calls “homegrown’ talent. Everybody is happy and that’s what palm tree studded locales are all about. Well Dunne! Cara. And thanks Brent.
Another radio guy has been kicked upstairs to help run a TV group. TVNewscheck reports that CBS Radio CFO ANTON GUITANO has been named COO of CBS Local Media. He joins the ranks of JAY O’CONNOR who is heading up the Cox TV group. Question is why. Call me difficult, but the I don’t see the synergies and I would LOVE to know the thinking behind this trend. Anybody? Anybody? Buehler?

Watching BBC News early this AM and was reminded that time marches on – for the first time since it happened, there were no living World War I veterans at the Westminster Abbey ceremony. This being Veterans Day, perhaps we need to seek out the WWII men and women and make sure we cherish them.
