Big D Dallas. Someone needs to do an ode to Dallas like Sandberg did for Chicago. Maybe they have…anyway, FOX in Dallas (KDFW for those still into call letters) made a great hire sometimes a ways back (OK, August) that we’re just getting around to. Late can sometimes be better than sooner. So it is with CHRIS IVEY, the new On-Air Manager. Chris is no stranger to KDFW…he was there spinning promo gold from ’99 to ’05 for them as Sr. Producer. He left to found his own freelance biz (a huge thing in DFW…tons of production) but was lured back by JOHN KUKLA, who is a super boss. Chris does it all, including shooting. He’s worked on syndicated shows and began his career in Kansas City at WDAF. Coolness continues…he composes music. And he sings it, as he did for KDFW’s “Good Day” theme. Yeah, it’s a really good hire. Well Dunne! Chris.
Well Dunne! Talent’s SEAN CALDWELL is at the CES in Vegas, and from the sounds of it, is agog at a new microphone and all kinds of other recording equipment. Of course, the CES has every gadget imaginable. I bet it’s nearly overwhelming. Sean is always a step ahead.
Think About This: “It has been said ‘time heals all wounds.’ I do not agree. The wounds remain. In time, the mind, protecting its sanity, covers them with scar tissue and the pain lessens. But it is never gone.” ~ Rose Kennedy
