So far, 2017 has proven to be a fast-moving, bizarre, surreal few weeks. A well respected friend pointed out from his VP office, ‘all my childhood is fading away, one at a time.’ Yesterday MARY TYLER MOORE turned off the lights in the WJM-TV newsroom for the very, very last time. Her character Mary Richards painted a picture of TV news that attracted more than a few of us to get into the business.  But it wasn’t the job itself that was the extra spark that made MTM an icon. It was the fact her character was strong, single, brave, anxious, and feminine…and smart. That was not the picture of women in the US at the time. The happy ending for Mary Richards was a job well done, a friend helped, a statement made, all without an apron or a PTA membership. It was cutting edge in its day and it was done with top drawer humor. Well Dunne! Mary Richards.


If you don’t think a musical jingle has power anymore (btw – Who said that? Somebody floated that rumor..who said that?) just remember that everybody used the song’s words when Mary died. Who could turn the world on with a smile…

 

CBS is running a Mary salute Thursday night. PBS is and on Saturday, Sundance TV is running a Mary Marathon. .

 

 

In the real world…down in San Antonio, dear DON SMITH’s father, Don Sr., passed away today. Don was a Junior with a brand new son just a week old. The wheel of life keeps turning. Our love to Don and his family. Don is CSD at KENS.

Think About This:  “The days of our lives, for all of us, are numbered…We know that. And yes, there are certainly times when we aren’t able to muster as much strength and patience as we would like. It’s called being human. But I have found that in the simple act of living with hope, and in the daily effort to have a positive impact in the world, the days I do have are made all the more meaningful and precious. And for that I am grateful.”  ~ Elizabeth Edwards

What a fascinating background JASON KASHDAN brings to his new slot at CBS’ WBZ. The Boston U grad was one of four ‘stars’ of a four year online web series documenting the lives of BU students as they experience the four years of college. Called COMlife, the YouTube series promises to be a great insight into the new breed of creative. CBS has been a home of sorts for Jason, who has been an AP for CBS Interactive, an Intern at CBS News in NYC, was a do-it-all shooter, editor and Prod Ass’t for USA Today Sports Media Group in Beantown and now is working on the Boston creative team led by PETER MASUCCI and SEAN BARNACOAT.  When Sean was a student in Madrid, he was also an intern for Lopez-Li Films…yes, he’s fluent in Spanish. French, too. His short films have won awards and, well, do you get the idea he’s a major Go-Getter…one to watch? Yeah, he is. Let’s have a major Well Dunne! in English for Jason.
