That BRUCE BURNS is some smooth talker! He’s the CSD at Hearst’s WLKY in Louisville and he enticed a talented promo guy into leaving behind the warm balmy weather of Orlando, FL to come to Kentucky in the winter. Now that, ladies and gentlemen, is promotion. Joining Bruce as Promotion Manager, is PAUL CHAPLIN, who calls Milwaukee, WI home, so he’s well aware of winter. He got a degree from University of Green Bay (yes, he is a Cheesehead) and is already hitting the ground running in Derby Town. Well Dunne! Paul.
NATPE’s RICK FELDMAN is changing hats. He’ll be taking off the CEO hat and wearing a Consultant hat for the next three years. Rick’s station-side background made him a perfect CEO. Hope they find someone with the same energy and knowledge as Rick.

Heading to the Golden State, which is, of course, California….drum roll please….none other than the one, the only, the favorite….cue the applause sign, people… DEILIA WILLIAMS. Ms. D is heading not just to California, but to the prettiest part of the state…the Monterrey area. Her new title is Creative Services Director at Hearst’s ABC affil KSBW, and it’s her first time to run the creative show. She is giving up her Promotion Manager slot at Hearst’s WLKY in Louisville. Hates to leave CSD BRUCE BURNS but a girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do. Her hubby and two children are all along for the ride and looking forward to that laid-back lifestyle Cali is so famous for. Perhaps surfing lessons are an option.
