KIRO’s CSD CHLOE HOUSER has landed herself ‘a catch’ as her new Brand Manager. JIM MARKETTI is heading to Seattle and he starts next Monday. The University of Wisconsin-Madison grad started as a news photog at WITI in Milwaukee and transitioned to promo there, and that led to being Exec Producer Ad and Promo at KSTP in Minneapolis. Chicago was the next market where he was Promo Manager at FOX WFLD then at NBC’s WMAQ. He went back to WFLD as a member of the VP Club. Jim’s also been doing his promo magic for Weigel Broadcasting and was Creative Director for the Local Station Group for them. He’s been busy over at WLS in Chicago lately. You need to give him a hearty Well Dunne! Jim!
Think About This: “Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current that can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.” ~ Robert Kennedy, assassinated June 6, 1968
