Timing, particularly good timing – it’s important in all sorts of endeavors. Sports, TV, love and weather come to mind. CRAIG DAVENPORT is combining TV and weather timing in his next career move when he returns to sunny Florida just in time to see the rest of the country get out their heavy coats and snow boots. First part of December, Craig is heading to Jacksonville, Florida to take over the creative reins at Cox’s duopoly, WTEV and WAWS, CBS and Fox respectively. Timing. Craig is leaving WSOC, the Cox ABC affil in Charlotte and, though he hates to depart after giving the station his creative energetic spin, it’s a good move for him. He’s got Florida chops – spent 14 years or so at WPEC down in West Palm. He know doubt knows all about palm tree maintenance. Well Dunne! Craig.
Not only did Albuquerque hold their balloon festival to welcome KOAT’s CSD DEILIA WILLIAMS (OK, so they do that yearly but this year, it was perfect timing for Ms. D) but just this weekend, they had the Southwest Bacon Festival! They didn’t try to put green chili on the bacon, did they?
